Sneak Peak Birthday Card

December 22, 2017

I have had some of the product from the soon to be released Occasions Catalogue sitting in a box on the floor of my craft room neglected while I finished my Christmas projects.  I have finally got them out of the box and have started to play with them.  One of the first sets I wanted to use was the Petal Palette stamp set.  I decided that the best way to see what was in each stamp set was to stamp them onto Whisper White card.  This stamp set has a co-ordinating set of dies – the Petals and More Thinlits Dies, so I cut them out and attached them to the stamped page.  Now I have a visual record of what is in these sets which I find makes it easier to begin creating with them.  Anyway while doing this I stamped a number of the flower images onto some scrap Whisper White card and started trying a few different colouring techniques.  This card features two of the images which are stamped onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist ink and an Aqua Painter.  The images are so pretty and I love that I have been able to achieve some depth of colour in the images.  They also have a co-ordinating die to cut them out – Woohoo.   Soooo….. I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto Whisper White card and cut it out using one of the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  The greeting is attached to a Berry Burst scalloped circle cut using the same dies.  I attached the two images to the Whisper White circle around the greeting.  I embossed Whisper White card using one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  These embossing folders come as a set of two, so they are the smaller dies but this one was easy enough to line up and cover the whole of the Whisper White card.  I wrapped the bottom of the card using Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and tied a knot (a new ribbon in the Occasions Catalogue).  The embossed card is attached to scored and folded Berry Burst card before I attached the image panel.  To decorate the inside of the card, I attached another of the stamped images, which I had coloured in the same manner, to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.

This card is destined for a friend, whose birthday was a couple of days ago.  A little late but hopefully she will like it enough to forgive my lateness.

Bye for now,
