Mushroom Birthday Card

Thanks for joining us for 
DD's Crafts Fabulous 50 Birthday Blog Hop!!

If you just came from Julie the  Cricut Chick's blog ( you are in the right place... if not, please head over to Debbie's blog at to start at the beginning.

Today I have another shaped card to share! :)
This adorable mushroom is from Cindy Lou. I sized the shadow layer to 5 1/2" and welded two shapes together to form the card base. It will fit into a standard A2 envelope, so no extra postage required. 

All the paper is from my scrap bin but most is Bazzill cardstock. I inked all the layers with royal blue ink and a finger dauber. I love how much dimension inking adds to a card. 

I added five silver brads to the mushroom stem and a Scrappy Mom's Stamp for the birthday sentiment. I drew the faux stitches on using my white Gelly Roll gel pen.

I didn't have this sentiment, so I had to create it myself. Using Honey Script, I added the inside sentiment that reads "Happy Birthday to a real Fungi!" I love it! :)

I've seen that sentiment before and it's cute but then again I love puns. I agree about the inking, too. It adds so much.
