Heartfelt Birthday Wishes!
I mentioned in another post that Heartfelt Thanks is a tried and true for me. Well here it is once again. This is a super simple card that I made for a workshop that I did. Pink Passion and Only Orange keep jumping out at me to be used. I'm not usually a Bold Brights kinda gal, but it just speaks tropical summer fun to me. Living in Florida summer is about 8 months long, so maybe that is why. Anyway, this is a two step stamp set, but I used each portion separately. I used the floral part with Whisper White Craft Ink on the pink cardstock and then tore it on the diagonal. The outline portion of the flower was again stamped in Whisper White craft on the orange portion. The "Happy Birthday" scalloped sentiment is from a retired set of which the name escapes me right now. I stamped that in each coordinating color. Punched the orange out with the scallop punch and the center out with the 1 3/8" punch. Then layered them with a dimensional for a little depth. If you look at the close up photo you can see a glimmer of glitter on the scallop. I actually added some Dazzling Diamonds to my Crystal Effects and placed it around the edge for sparkle. This allowed some glam without glitter all around the house. (Not appealing for some hostesses!) I hope you enjoy this oldie but goodie. And if you are interested in owning this card, or any creation of mine, please drop me a line at my email.
