Happy Birthday Jason
My son in law celebrated his birthday recently and I thought I would share his card with you. I cased a card by JoyceWhitman which I found on a demonstrator only facebook page. I love Joyce’s card but did add a little sponging to mine for a slightly different effect.
I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Early Expresso card. I sponged around the edges of Sahara Sand card using Sahara Sand ink. Stamped the greeting which is from a stamp set which was given to all attendees at the Brisbane Onstage Live Demonstrator event using Early Expresso ink. You will see more of this stamp set in the coming weeks, leading up to the release of the Occasions Catalogue in January. This panel is attached to the left hand side of the card front. I stamped the large leaf image from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set onto Cajun Craze card using Cajun Craze ink. I also sponged the edges of the card with the same ink before attaching to the card front. I inked the single tree stamp from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set using Early Expresso, Old Olive, Garden Green and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers. The Garden Green and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Write Markers were tapped over the tree after is was fully inked using the Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker. I love the shaded effect this gives the foliage. I sponged the edges of the card using Sahara Sand ink and attached the stamped panel to Early Expresso card before attaching to the card front using dimensionals. To decorate the inside of the card I sponged around the edges of the Very Vanilla card using Sahara Sand ink and added a narrow panel of Cajun Craze card which was stamped and sponged the same as the Cajun Craze panel on the front of the card.
I was very happy with the final result and super happy to use a brand new stamp set. Thanks Jessica for the inspiration.
I’d love to hear what you think and so would Jessica.
Bye for now,
