Recliner Birthday Card


recliner birthday with kissing

I got this cute little Lawn Fawn recliner recently, and pulled it out to make a birthday card for someone in his 80’s who does love his recliner.

But I didn’t just want a plain recliner…I wanted patterned fabric!

I used a kissing technique. I inked up the recliner, then stamped onto a large background stamp (Stampin’ Up! Canvas (retired)), then stamped (without reinking) onto the paper and embossed with clear powder.

Stamping onto the larger stamp removes some of the ink in the pattern of the large stamp. You could also cover the large patterned stamp with smaller images, and then stamp that larger stamp onto paper. Since I was only using a small image, I wanted the control of stamping the small stamp onto the paper.

I was very pleased with the tiny check pattern result!
