Happy Birthday Birdie

September 3, 2019

I saw a lovely card on Pinterest created by the talented Jan B using the now retired Petal Palette stamp set and co-ordinating Petals & More Dies.  I loved the layout and decided to re-create it using the Free As A Bird stamp set.  I cut a circle from a piece of Whisper White card and attached a panel behind it which I embossed using the Lace 3D Embossing Folder.  I added dimensionals between these two layers.  The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Thick Whisper White card using dimensionals where necessary.  I stamped the leaves, flowers and bird from the Free As A Bird stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured them using the Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends.  I used the colour lifter on the bird, to lighten some of my colouring and the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to colour the beak on the bird.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set onto scrap Whisper White card using Poppy Parade ink and used the Classic Label Punch to punch it out. I arranged the stamped images around the circle using mini dimensionals where necessary.  I also added Basic Rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.

I kept the inside of the card very simple.  I stamped one leaf and one large single flower onto scrap Whisper Whtie card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the images using the Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends.  I attached the leaf and the flower to the top right hand corner of the inside of the card.

This is such a pretty card, so thank you, JanB, for the inspiration.

Bye for now,
