Coral Birthday

February 22, 2018

I needed to make a card for a friend’s birthday and since I had the Amazing You stamp set out on my desk, I put it to good use.  I stamped the floral image from this stamp set onto the upper left hand corner of Whisper White card using Wild Wasabi ink.  I cut Basic Black card using the largest scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and attached it to the Whisper White card, partially covering the stamped image.  The Whisper White card is attached to scored and folded Calypso Coral card.  I stamped “you” and “are simply” from the Amazing You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut out the greeting using the 2nd largest of the circles from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.  I cut “amazing” from Gold Foil using the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies and attached it beneath the greetings.  I stamped the floral image twice onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the images using the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out one full flower and one partial flower.  I attached the partial flower to the full flower using a dimensional.  The flower is attached to the card front so that it covers the stamped flower.  I added a large Gold Faceted Gem to the centre of the flower as well.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the floral image onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Wild Wasabi ink.  I stamped the floral image onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the flower and attached it over the stamped image.

Some of the pieces for this card were in my “another day” bag, which contains left over shapes and die cuts that didn’t make it onto whatever project I was working on but I love how it came together.  It is so pretty that I created the same card using several different coloured flowers.

Bye for now,

Kris
