                                                Stamped in distress in with the misti
                                                       First was a yellow then a brown
                                          I have been playing with making tags with
                                                       washi tape and here you see
                                                         a sliver off the edge of one

                                              You do need to add this technique to your list '

                                                  For  Unicorn 1st birthday  
                                               decided on an explosion card


There are 9 surfaces to decorate  and I did each with a birthday  pop up or sticker

Unfortunately with the print card stock I used it is not showing well

Please believe me it is pretty
This will have to be hand delivered or mailed in a box
I once mailed an explosion box out of the country and the customs tag said explosion box
Guess what customs opened it for inspection and then couldn't fold  it back   My friend received  it  in  a large government  package

                                    HAPPY BIRTHDAY

CAS Birthday

Anyone who follows  me knows  CAS is difficult for me
I have to tell myself over and over it  means simple

Well I did this time and didn't have to do over
First step was to put the card stock through an embossing  folder

The BIRTHDAY  sentiment is from MFP  stamp set  Large  Blooms

and I used my Mini Misti
NOTE.. the little protector jacket my daughter makes

I used distress inks and marshmallow sponges to color the folder
I have no idea what these are called and I still have packaging ?? 
But  I will add I love and use them a lot

I bought two sets  ,,,,,,not necessary   as you can use both ends
and still have enough for all your colors

They do a nice job once you learn to dab off and use a light touch
