Happy Birthday card with Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder

Another birthday party, another birthday card to bring!  I recently purchased Silhouette's Designer Edition (like Studio with more goodies to try out!) and was playing around with some of the sketch options in it.  One of the things you could do was fill your letters with this cross hatch pattern.  So while this was simple to do in DE, I'm still going to share it for those of you without it!  You can download the happy birthday design here... happy birthday
Just like yesterday's card, I have a lot of pre-cut 4x5.5 kraft cards I need to use up from the holidays, so I used the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder with the black metallic Chomas Creations gel pen from the assorted pack of gel pens to draw the sentiment right on the card.  Then I just added a chipboard sticker.  Super easy!
Now I just need more time to play with my new software!!!
Also keep in mind you can use the coupon code january10 at checkout in the Chomas Creations store to save 10% off your entire purchase!

This card is so cute....definitely follows the rule 'less is more'. I love it. Thanks for sharing it and the file. I just downloaded DE, so I can't wait to try something like this. :)

I just now tried to copy your design; I used the file you shared and I had some trouble. I did find out my pens I got at Staples seemed dried out but I found a purple one that worked but it didn't leave a mark on the card when I tried the settings you gave so I dropped the pen down and then it marked connecting lines between words when it moved. Any ideas? It also went the wrong direction on my 4x5.5 card. Donna

Donna, can you email me? I'll try answering though! I don't know what holder you are using.
I do know that you can mirror the design though to get it to face right.
