Happy Leap Year Day…………..

Happy Leap Year Day ~ We don’t get the chance to say that very often!  I know a couple of people born on February 29th – it is nice to be able to wish them a happy birthday on the actual day.

I shared a card the other day using the ‘What I Love’ exclusive Sale-a-bration stamp set.  That card used lovely subtle shades – the card I have to share to day uses the big bold Melon Mambo and Tuxedo Black!!!

This is a 3-step photopolymer set that allows you to build up the prettiest of flowers in ever increasing shades.

Base card:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Basic Black card, scored @ 4 1/4

Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Melon Mambo card

Layer 2: 5 x 3 3/4 Whisper White card

 

Ink ~  Melon Mambo and Memento Tuxedo Black

I used the first stamp with Melon Mambo stamped off on a sheet of scrap paper before putting it on my card.  The second stamp with full strength Melon Mambo then the 3rd stamp with Tuxedo Black ink.  Because the stamps are photopolymer it is so easy to line them up!

All 3 layers are attached with snail adhesive , then pearls added to the center of the flowers.

The ‘YOU’ is stamped onto white card then cut with 3/4 circle punch. I then cut a piece of Black and Melon Mambo card with the Petite Petals punch – offset them before attaching to the card with a Stampin’ dimensional

I love it and  hope you do to – let me know your thoughts below …………
