Happy Birthday Sarah

January 15, 2014

My eldest daughter Sarah is celebrating her birthday today.  I was able to enjoy a lovely lunch with her, my other daughter Emma, grandchildren, my Mum and Dad as well as my sister Karyn and her granddaughter Tahlia at the Woorim Surf Life Saving Club.  We were lucky that the day turned quite sunny and was lovely looking from the verandah out to sea.

Sarah's-Birthday-card-2014I cased the card I made for Sarah from one that Narelle Farrugia shared here.  I attached a piece of Smoky Slate Designer Series paper from the  Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack to Smoky Slate card and then to scored and folded Whisper White card.  I embossed Pistachio Pudding card using the Hexagon Embossing Folder, attached it to Smoky Slate card and then the card front.  I stamped the floral image from the Six Sided Sampler three times onto Whisper White card.  I cut the images by hand, attached them to Smoky Slate card which I punched using the Hexagon Punch and then to the card front.  Sarah's-Birthday-card-2I stamped the swirly image from the Everything Eleanor stamp set onto Whisper White card using Pistachio Pudding ink, cut it out and attached it to the card front using Glue Dots.  I stamped the flower from the Everything Eleanor stamp set onto Whisper White card four times.  I cut out two whole flowers and two partial flowers, stacking them together with dimensionals before attaching them to the card front.  I stamped happy birthday from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set onto Whisper White card using Smoky Slate ink, cut it out and attached it to Calypso Coral card cut using one of the Itty Bitty Framelits  diesSarah's-Birthday-Card-2014- I added a Basic Pearl to centre of each of the flowers as my finishing touch.  Inside the card I stamped the flower using Calypso Coral ink, masked it and then stamped the swirl image over the top using Pistachio Pudding ink.  I stamped the flower again onto scrap Whisper White card and cut out a partial flower which I attached over the stamped flower and then added a Basic Pearl.

A big thank you to Narelle for the inspiration to create this card which both Sarah and I loved.

As always if you would like to recreate this card you can purchase all the items you need from my online store.

Bye for now,

Kris
