Petal Parade meets Just Add Ink
I just love this sketch and knew straight away that I was going to use the Petal Parade stamp set and the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper. Both of these items are available free to you with a qualifying order from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (also available free with a qualifying order from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue). I punched a 2-1/2″ Circle from the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper, attached it to a larger circle of Basic Black card cut with one of the Circle Framelit Dies before adding it to the embossed card. I wrapped the Whisper White card with Pool Party 1/2″ Seam Binding and tied a knot before attaching the Whisper White card to scored and folded Pool Party card.
I stamped the larger image from the Petal Parade stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crisp Cantaloup ink and punched it out using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch. I stamped the smaller image from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card using Summer Starfuit ink and punched it out using the 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. I attached both images to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals, over the ribbon and each other. Lastly I added a Basic Rhinestone to the centre of each of the flower images.
On the inside I stamped the leafy image using Summer Starfruit ink. I attached a strip of Basic Black card to the Designer Series Paper and attached it over the stamped image. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Sassy Salutations stamp set using Crisp Cantaloup ink.
I have to say that the pattern I used from the Designer Series Paper wasn’t one that I liked at first, but it works so well in combination with the other colours and of course I think lot’s of white space helps keep it balanced. What do you think?
Bye for now,
