Stampin Up Out West Happy Birthday Card – Brayering

It has been a while since I’ve used my Stampin’ Up! brayer, so I decided to use it to create this card, featuring the Stampin Up Out West stamp set, for my special brother who has a birthday Saturday.  He is a horse lover and has had many beautiful, special horses in his lifetime.  Therefore, I wanted a horse stamp for the card.  I chose to use a retiring Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Out West, that met my need for a horse stamp.  The brayering on this card was inspired by Michelle Zindorf, who taught me how to use a brayer.  If you are interested in taking one of her classes (she travels all over the US), click here.

 As you can see, the card is an easel card.
