Happy Birthday Mum

January 4, 2018

On Tuesday I shared the card I made for my Dad for his birthday, but I didn’t tell you that Tuesday was also my Mum’s 81st birthday and I thought I would share the card I made for her with you.  It uses some gorgeous new product from the Occasions Catalogue from which you can begin purchasing now.  I started by cutting a 6″ square from the Petal Passion Designer Series paper.  This paper is black and white and is designed so that you can colour it in.  I used my Stampin’ Blends – Cherry Cobbler, Rich Razzleberry, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette and Old Olive to colour in my piece.  I used some light colours and some dark colours but I didn’t blend the colours together.  Once the panel was coloured I cut it into three pieces and this is the first piece that I am using.  To begin I embossed Whisper White card using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder and attached it to Silver Foil paper and then scored and folded Rich Razzleberry card.  I punched a long strip of Silver Foil using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind the coloured Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.  The designer series paper is attached to the bottom of the Whisper White card.  I stamped “happiest of birthdays to you” from the Picture Perfect stamp set onto Whisper White card using Rich Razzleberry ink.  I cut the greeting out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I stamped the image from the Petal Palette stamp set below the greeting using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  The greeting is attached to a scalloped circle of Silver Foil cut using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the same image from the Petal Palette stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it in using the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I punched another strip of Silver Foil using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and attached it behind one long edge of Whisper White card embossed using the Petal Burst Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel is attached to the stamped Whisper White card.

I’m not sure how much of the Silver you can see in the photos but this card really does shimmer and shine.  I will let you in on a little secret, the scalloped circle of Silver Foil was cut from the layer behind the Whisper White card, you can’t see where it was cut and saves on card.

Bye for now,

Kris

    Oh I love this Kris. I was actually waiting to see what you would have come up for your mum’s card as I remembered they were a few days apart.
