This week's challenge on Stamp With Us is a theme challenge - to create a Birthday card.
Everything used is Stampin' Up! supplies. I decided to do a little colouring for this one. Using the flower strip from the Little Bit of Happiness (a Level 1 hostess gift with four different strips) I stamped with Basic Grey ink (for a softer look) onto Whisper White card and coloured with markers. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to extend the Happiness strip to the full width of the card. This was matted onto paper from the new Tea Party Designer Series Paper collection and then onto Almost Amethyst card, punched with the scallop edge punch. The Fabulous Friend sentiment from the Oval All set was stamped onto Whisper White card, coloured with markers and punched with the small oval punch. It was then matted onto Almost Amethyst card punched with the scallop oval punch. It was added to the front of the card with dimensionals. Interest was added to the top of the card by adding a couple of silver eyelets, threaded with Moss gingham ribbon.
The inside of the card was stamped with the Birthday Wishes sentiment from the Sincere Salutations set. Using Apricot Appeal ink the flower strip was stamped across the bottom inside of the card. I think of the text, front and inside, as telling a little story.
Hope you're having a good Easter.
