Birthday Wishes

November 18, 2019

Today’s card was the first card I created following the directions by Sharni Haines on a Demonstrator only Facebook page I belong to (you have already seen one card using this idea).   I loved how she made the card she created in the video and the colours she used.  I began by punching Blackberry Bliss card using the Butterfly Duet Punch.    I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set onto the punched card using Versamark ink.  I sprinkled the ink with White Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I stamped the butterfly image onto Window Sheet using Stazon ink and attached the images to the back of the punched butterfly shapes. I wanted to add a little more interest to the card front so I  stamped the butterfly images, from the Butterfly Gala stamp set onto the Blackberry Bliss card using Versamark making sure to mask them so I only got one image at a time.  I repeated the process of sprinkling White Embossing powder and heat setting it. I cut a circle from Whisper White card using the largest die in the Layering Circle Dies.  I used the following inks to add colour to the circle – Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue, Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay, Gorgeous Grape, Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo. I attached the coloured wheel to the back of the stamped card using a retired brad.  I added two more brads just for interest before attaching the stamped panel to Whisper White card using Adhesive Strips. The whole piece is attached to scored and folded Blackberry Bliss card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the same butterfly image onto Vellum card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I flipped the image and used Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green and Mango Melody Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the large butterfly and Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the small butterfly.  I punched out the images and attached them to the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card.  Once they were attached, I stamped the bodies and the antennae’s using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I have someone special in mind for this card, I hope she likes it as much as I do.

Bye for now,
