Birthday Wishes

October 20, 2017

This is a card I created for a friend of mine who recently celebrated her birthday.   I started by stamping the Burlap Background onto Whisper White card using Sahara Sand ink.  I stamped the flower from You’ve Got This onto Whisper White card three times.  Once using Berry Burst ink, once using Rich Razzleberry ink and once using Fresh Fig ink.  I used the no line colouring technique I learned from my friend and fellow demonstrator Vicky Wright.  What that means is that you use an Aqua Painter which is slightly wet as soon as you stamp the image and move the ink around to colour the image.  It gives a lovely wash of colour and you don’t need to pick up ink from anywhere else.  Once I had stamped and coloured each flower, I cut them out.  I stamped the stem and leaf part of the image three times onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink and using the same technique, couloured them and cut them out.  I did leave a little of the flower on the top of the stems so that I could attached the flowers I had already cut out to each one.  I attached the Fresh Fig flower onto the top right hand corner of the stamped Whisper White card card and attached the Rich Razzleberry flower over the top.  I used dimensionals to add the Berry Burst flower.  I wrapped the bottom of the card with Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and tied a bow.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Berry Burst card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the greeting from the Butterfly Basics stamp set using Berry Burst ink.  I also stamped, coloured and cut out another flower using Berry Burst ink.  The flower is attached just above and to the right of the greeting.

I am loving this card.  So happy birthday Shirley, hope you had an amazing day.

Bye for now,
