Special Birthday Celebration

October 21, 2019

I had a friend celebrate one of those “0” birthday’s, not telling which one, but I wanted to create a special card for her and this is what I came up with.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Special Celebration stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I cut a strip of Blackberry Bliss card using the border die from the Be Mine Stitched Dies and attached it to a piece of Whisper White card I had embossed using the Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel is attached to the stamped Whisper White card and the whole panel is attached to scored and folded Blackberry Bliss card.  I stamped the large flower from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set onto Whisper White card three times using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured the leaves on one image using the Old Olive Stampin’ Blends.  I also coloured the outside edge of the flower using the Light Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend before cutting out the image using the co-ordinating Magnolia Die.  I coloured the whole of the flower on the second image using the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and hand cut the flower.  I only coloured the central four petals on the third image, again using the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blends and the Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend.  I attached the images on top of each other using dimensionals.  I used a spritzer to spray the flower with a mix of Rubbing Alcohol (Isopril – available at Woolies and Coles) and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  I let the flower dry before attaching it to the card front.  I tied a bow in a length of Gold 5/8″ Metallic Edge Ribbon and attached it to the flower stem.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the border image from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set using Blackberry Bliss ink.

I love this card and I hope my friend did too.

Bye for now,
