Happy Birthday Abigail

December 17, 2018

My eldest granddaughter celebrated her 14th birthday yesterday, Happy Birthday Abigail.  Today I am sharing the card I made for her.  I created a screen divider card using the instructions at Splitcoast Stampers with Basic Black card.  I cut the bottom of the screen using the Everyday Label Punch to create the legs.  I used the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch to add interest to each of the four panels but punching once only in the centre of each panel.  To decorate the first panel I stamped the greeting and image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink The image of the lady is coloured using Highland Heather and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  To decorate the second panel I stamped the image of the lady from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the same image onto a post-it-note and cut it out.  I attached the post-it-note image over the stamped image and then stamped the scene from the Mediterranean Moments stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I removed the post-it-note mask and coloured the images using Highland Heather, Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  I also stamped “celebrate” from the Beautiful You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  For the third panel I stamped the lady with the umbrella image from the Beautiful You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I also stamped the greeting from the same stamp set using the same ink.  I coloured the lady image using Highland Heather and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  For the fourth panel, I stamped the last lady image from the Beautiful You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the same image onto a post-it-note and cut it out.  I placed the post-it-note image over the stamped image.  I stamped the sand image from the High Tide stamp set using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the sea image from the High Tide stamp set using Balmy Blue ink.  I sponged the remainder of the panel using Pool Party ink.  Lastly I stamped the bird image from the High Tide stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I removed the post-it-not mask and stamped the greeting from the Beautiful You stamp set.

On the back of the card, I attached a Whisper White panel so that I could write a greeting.  I stamped the greeting from the soon to be released Incredible Like You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto another panel.  This last panel is only attached around three edges, because I wanted to be able to add the remainder of her birthday money in there for Abigail to buy something lovely for herself.

Of course I had to create an envelope especially for this card and I decorated it by stamping the same image from the Beautiful You stamp set that I used on the first panel of the card.  I once again stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using Highland Heather and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  Abigail received a Pandora charm to add to the bracelet that we bought her for her 13th birthday.  The charm came in a lovely little box which I also decorated by making a belly band from Highland Heather card.  I stamped the same image as the first panel and the envelope and coloured it as before.  I cut out the image using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  The image panel is attached to a Highland Heather scalloped oval cut using the same dies before being attached to the belly band.

I love how easy it is to create co-ordinating packaging and cards using Stampin’ Up! products, don’t you.

Once more a very happy birthday Abigail.

Bye for now,

Kris
