This is one of those special birthday cards – made for a friend who was celebrating a milestone birthday – I did not add an age – everyone deserves a little consideration when it comes to that! My stamp set is Southern Serenade with the Layering Oval Dies making the focal point and Eclectic Layers thinlits dies giving some background dimension.
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Extra Thick Whisper White Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Pear Pizzazz card – attached to the back of the card base after the pattern was cut.
Center-piece: Whisper White card layered onto Fresh Fig card.
Ink Colors: Sahara Sand, Pear Pizzazz, Archival Basic Black and Fresh Fig.
The lattice piece was cut into the card base first, then the ‘lacy’ background stamp from Southern Serenade was added using Sahara Sand ink. Happy Birthday was added in Pear Pizzazz and the Pear Pizzazz layer added to the back with a little Snail Adhesive.
The flower is stamped in Archival Black ink and the lacy stamp placed on the bottom of the stems. The oval was cut with the second to largest plain oval and the Fresh Fig layer with the larges scalloped oval. The flower was colored using inks and a blender pen – very relaxing – I even colored the flowers on the inside of the card and on the envelope.
Some Fresh Fig 1/8 sheer ribbon was looped behind and a bow added to add a finishing touch. Just love it and hope my friend did too!
