Happy Birthday boy reading cards

Happy Saturday!  I finally sorted my book themed card order today (beware there's a few more coming on my blog tomorrow).  But today I've got two to share, love taking the same pieces and making slightly different cards.  I've used the faux embossing technique with the PTI impression plate (click here for my tutorial on it).

For this card I used the woodgrain embossing folder for the Mat Stack 3 die so I could play along with the A Passion For Papertrey gals.


And this one I've used the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.

Materials: Top Card: Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It sentiment, PTI All Booked Up, PTI All Booked Up Impression plate, PTI Mat Stack 3 die, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder, Tattered Angels black mist, Versafine black ink,  PTI Double Sided banner die, EK Success 1 3/4th inch cirlce punch, May Arts ribbon, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, PTI kraft card stock, water color paper

Bottom Card: Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It sentiment, PTI All Booked Up, PTI All Booked Up Impression plate, PTI Mat Stack 1 die, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder, Versafine black ink,  PTI Double Sided banner die, EK Success 1 3/4th inch cirlce punch, PTI 1 3/4th inch Limitless Layers die, May Arts natural string, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen, PTI kraft card stock, water color paper, black card stock, vellum

Hooray for finishing your order! I hope you're all packed for your trip and have safe travels, my friend. Thanks for sharing these fabby cards first--I just ordered some of that chevron twill and hope I'll be able to convince myself not to hoard it!

That is such a pretty image, and it looks wonderful with the text background! How come I always forget to stamp sentiments on vellum? Thanks for reminding me :)

Both look great and I love your use of the stamped vellum.
