Mushroom Birthday Card

Mushrooms remind us of the typical colors of fall. The brown and beige tones are warm and represent the changing beauty of nature at this time of the year. If you know someone with a autumn birthday, why not make them a card representing the season.



Fall Greeting or Birthday Card - Card with Mushroom Motif

For this project you will need:

- off-white card 10,5 x 14,5 in size
- off-white watercolor paper (300 g /m²)
- brown cardstock
- scrapbook paper with striped fall colors in earth tones
- decorating chalk in the color of brown (to antique the edges)
- stamp with mushroom (approximately 4 x 5 cm in size)
- stamp with birthday greeting approximately 6 cm wide
- black pigment ink
- clear embossing powder
- heat tool / heat gun

- die cutting machine of choice
- scallop die measuring 7.5 cm
- circle die measuring 6 cm
- 3-D foam tape

5. Use your finger and rub it onto the chalk and then gently rub along the outside edges of the card, circle and small rectangle to give them an aged look.
