Another Birthday Card
My youngest daughter celebrated her birthday on Friday. Doesn’t time fly, it seems like only yesterday I brought her home from hospital, and now she is a grown woman with three children of her own!
Of course I had to make her a card and I was inspired by this card on Pinterest by Vicki Burdick at It’s a Stamp Thing. I stamped the greeting from the Build A Birthday Photopolymer stamp set onto Whisper White card using Stazon Jet Black ink before attaching the panel to Flirty Flamingo card and then scored and folded A4 Thick Whisper White card (I am so loving this, just the perfect weight for a card base). I cut the large swirl from the Swirly Scribble Thinlits Dies from Pool Party card and attach it to the card front using Tombow Multipurpose Glue. I stamped the image from the Hostess Set Gift of Love Photopolymer stamp set onto Shimmery White card using Stazon Jet Black ink. I used my Aqua Painter, Flirty Flamingo ink and Old Olive ink to colour in the image. (I am so late to the party! It is so easy to water colour using the Shimmery White card. Not much bleeding and the card doesn’t get as wet as normal Whisper White card, so you don’t get that “rubbed” look. Anyway, just love it. You can bet I will be using this more often.) Once coloured, I cut out the flower and attached it to the card front using dimensionals. The butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set is stamped onto Whisper White card using Daffodil Delight ink and punched out using the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I attached it to the card front using a Glue Dot in the centre and a 1/4 dimensional under each wing. The Basic Pearls just finish it off. To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the swirly image from the Swirly Birds photopolymer stamp set and added another butterfly, this time without the dimensionals and the Basic Pearls.
I absolutely adore this card and can’t thank Vicki enough for the inspiration, although I did have to add a couple of extra layers.
Hope you enjoyed this card and find some inspiration for your own card making.
Bye for now,
