The sketch challenge at Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild this weekend is a fun one. Since the Carousel Birthday stamp set is the one that I have been working on I decided to use it to create my card.
I attached a piece of the Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack to Very Vanilla card and then to scored and folded Early Expresso card. I stamped the image from the Carousel Birthday stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Bermuda Bay ink. I cut the image using a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and attached it to an Early Espresso scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. I attached the image panel to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Party with Cake stamp set onto a narrow strip of Very Vanilla card using Early Expresso ink. I cut one end using the Triple Banner Punch and attached it to Early Expresso card which also had one end cut using the Triple Banner Punch. I attached the banner to the card front using dimensionals under the left hand side so that the banner could sit across the image panel.
To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the carousel horse image from the Carousel Birthday stamp set onto the bottom of Very Vanilla card using Bermuda Bay ink.
Wow, I am loving this. I got to create a great card using a great sketch and the bonus is it really only took minutes. The colour scheme comes from the Designer Series Paper and because they have been professionally co-ordinated, I think my card looks fabulous! Best of all I got to break out this gorgeous Designer Series Paper and create a fun card.
I’d love to hear what you think.
