We think this adorable birthday card from Christiana just has to be shared AND... we have a tutorial that she did which shows how she made her sweet card!

Step 1: Ink up the Mulberry Wood Friend stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.

Step 2: 
Die cut your image into a focal panel.

Step 3:
Choose your patterned papers and match them to the Spectrum Noir color chart to choose your markers.
