Guest Designing for AAA Birthdays

I am delighted and honoured to be a Guest Designer for AAA Birthday Challenge
The theme for Game #16 is Tic TacToe - choose any three elements in a row from the board and of course it needs to be a Birthday Card. 

I chose the top horizontal line 'bright, embossing, masculine'

I stamped and heat embossed the sailing boat.  I used Zig Markers for the image and background. 
I cut a photo frame with a Kaisercraft die, stamped a sentiment and constructed the card. 
Stamps: Stamplorations 'True North'
Inspired by Stamping 'Birthday Greetings'

You can see lots more wonderful creations from the DT at the AAA Birthday blog and hopefully you'll be inspired to join in the challenge.

I'm also sharing my card at the following:-

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. Your card is striking and beautifully done. Did you emboss the entire stamp? The texture looks just so yummy.


    1. Thanks Monica:) I did emboss the entire stamp, but I do find that the Arches watercolour paper sometimes absorbs the powder, so it's sort of a matte look.

  2. Awesome masculine card Jenny! Love the look of all that texture contrasted with the clean crisp lines of the frame. Thanks so much for being such an amazing Guest Designer at AAA Birthday.

  3. Another beautiful beachy watercolor, Jenny! Love these bright colors! Congratulations on another Guest Designer post!

  4. Wonderful artistic card and I love the texture of the main image. Congrats on joining us this month as Guest Designer at AAA birthday and I hope you enjoyed the challenge.
