Birdie Birthday

June 14, 2019

Today’s card is one that I made for a customer who celebrated her birthday earlier this week.  I used the Fab Friday 165 sketch challenge as the inspiration for my card.    I embossed Balmy Blue card using the Layering Leaves 3D Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Thick Very Vanilla card.  I attached a length of scalloped ribbon to Burlap ribbon the same length using Mini Glue Dots before attaching it to the embossed card. I stamped the image from the Free As A Bird stamp set onto Shimmery White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured the image using the Balmy Blue, Early Espresso, Garden Green, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.  I cut out the image using a Rectangle Stitched Die and stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set onto the lower right hand corner using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the single bird image from the Free As A Bird stamp set onto the lower left hand corner using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the bird using the Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen.  I also stamped another of the greetings from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

This card is sooo pretty.  I am totally in love with this stamp set.  The images are just gorgeous and if you love colouring then this is for you too.

Bye for now,

Kris
