Happiest Birthday Wishes

April 19, 2012

I liked the look of a sketch at Sudsol this week and thought it lent itself to using up scraps of Designer Series Paper.

I punched the squares using my 1″ Square Punch from Designer Paper found in the Brights Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack.  I attached them down the left hand side of Whisper White card stock and then embossed just the section with the Designer Paper using the Stripes Embossing Folder.  I stamped the greeting from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set using Pacific Point ink in the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card stock.  The Whisper White card stock is attached to a mat of Pacific Point card stock and then to scored and folded Whisper White card stock.  I inked the truck image from the I Dig You stampset using Old Olive, Pacific Point and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Markers and stamped onto Whisper White card stock.  I inked the present image from the same stamp set using Rich Razzleberry, Regal Rose and Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock, cut the image out and then attached it so that it looked like the truck is carrying a load of presents.  I attached the image panel to Real Red card stock and then to the card front using dimensionals.

I hope you can see the detail here of the embossing on the Designer Series Paper.  It kind of meshes the designer paper to the Whisper White card stock, giving it a more solid/unified look.  Hopefully you can also see that I have cut the “present” image out and attached it.

I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
