Happy Birthday Mum and Dad
Both my Mum and Dad celebrated their birthdays yesterday but I couldn’t share their card with you until today.
My Mum’s card is a case of this one I found on Pinterest. I stamped the greeting from the You’re Amazing stampset onto Whisper White card 10cm x 14.3cm using Raspberry Ripple ink. I cut the greeting from the Whisper White card using one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I embossed the cut card using the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. I wrapped each side of the cut out using Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Raspberry Ripple card using dimensionals and then glued down the greeting into the cut out. I stamped the flower from the Flower Shop stamp set using Raspberry Ripple ink and punched it out with the Pansy Punch. I cut two sets of leaves from Smoky Slate card using the Little Leaves Sizzlit. The flowers and the leaves are attached to the lower left hand card front. I cut another flower and and another two sets of leaves, attached them to the lower left hand side of Whisper White card which I attached to the inside of the card.
Pretty isn’t it. Thanks so much to Rae Harper-Burnett for the inspiration.
My Dad’s card was inspired by this one which Danielle Calder made for her Dad. I stamped Night of Navy card with the journal and anchor images from The Open Sea stamp set using Night of Navy ink and sponged the edges with the same ink. I attached the Night of Navy card to Crumb Cake card and then scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card. I stamped the journal image from The Open Sea stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Night of Navy ink. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink roughed up the edges using my Distress Tool and then sponged the edges again with the Soft Suede. I tied some Linen Thread around the stamped image and then attached it to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped the globe image and boat from the same stamp set using Night of Navy ink onto Very Vanilla card. I cut out both images and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink. I also used the Distress Tool on the edges of the globe image. I stamped happy birthday from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set onto Very Vanilla card, cut it out using the large Bitty Banner Framelit and touched the edges to my Soft Suede ink pad. I attached the greeting behind the boat and attached it to the card front using dimensionals so that it sits partially over the journal image. The globe image is attached to the card front also using dimensionals so that it sits partially over the journal image.
To decorate the inside I stamped the journal image onto scrap paper and then Very Vanilla card using Soft Suede ink. I stamped the greeting from the Bring on the Cake stamp set using Night of Navy ink over the top of the journal image.
