Grungy Birthday Card

Hello everyone, Asia King here! Today I’m sharing a grungy, covered in moss birthday card I made for my hubby :).

Once I prepared my A5 card blank I covered the background with pattern papers distressed with inks and a distressing tool. I layered them up and adhered with Home Hobby Grand Permanent Strips.

To create my grungy banner I first inked up the grunge board letters by dunking them in pools of ink on my craft mat. Then I cut a ‘wooden block’ for each letter from brown cardstock and sanded it around the edges to create a worn look. To adhere the letters to the block background I used Adhesive Sheets 4×6″.

To make the fence I stamped the woodgrain pattern onto inked white card and cut strips to create planks. I added some rusty nails (small brads) and popped the planks onto the card with Crafty Foam Tape Black.

Once the planks were in place I added my ‘Happy Birthday’ banner using Adhesive Sheets I had to hand. With the help of my trusty Crafty Foam Tape Black I also added a vintage rusty metal plaque which I bought a few years ago at a flea market in Bruges. To complete my card I added some faux moss using Quick & Easy Dual Tip Glue Pen and I tied a bow to the metal plaque.
