5 1/2 x 8 1/2 whisper white cs--fold in half (4 1/4")
4 x 5 1/4 pacific point cs
3 3/4 x 5 rich razzleberry cs
3 1/2 x 4 3/4 shimmery white cs

Black Archival Ink
Old Olive Ink
Rich Razzleberry Ink
Pacific Point Ink
Early Espresso Ink
Blender Pen

Stamp the horse on a piece of white paper, cut it out.  Use regular paper or a post it note.  This is for masking.

Stamp the horse on the Shimmery white cs with the black ink.  Put the mask of the horse over the top of the stamped horse.  Now stamp the tree trunks with the Early Espresso ink.  Stamp the flower stems with the Old Olive ink.  Leave the mask on while you stamp the flowers.  Be sure to clean the stamp when you change colors.

The tree leaves are stamped with Old Olive ink.

Lightly color the tree trunks with the Early Espresso ink.  You do not have to get every spot colored.  Use a blender pen to blend the color on the tree trunks.  Color the horse.  Lightly blend with the blender pen.  Be sure not to get the card stock to wet.  It could rip.

I used the smallest of the oval stitched framlits for the happy birthday.  Sponge around the greeting.  Mount the layers on the card front & use a dimensional to pop up the greeting.

I hope you liked this card!  Any of the supplies can be ordered from my website on the left.

Happy Stampin
