Hello Friends!! I've got a fantastic card to share with you that is incorporating new items from the 2023 January-April Mini catalog and the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The Best Day stamp set includes a few images that are perfect for color with a number of mediums...alcohol markers, watercolor pencils or watercoloring with ink. My color palette for the cake colors originate from the Dandy Designs 12' x 12' Designer Series Paper—FREE with a $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration.
I started with a Balmy Blue card base and added a piece of Balmy Blue cardstock that was run through with the Cane Weave 3D Embossing Folder to the top half of the card front. The bottom half consists of patterns that make up the front and back of one sheet of Dandy Designs Designer Series paper.
I started with a piece of Basic White cardstock that measures 3" x 4". The scalloped tag look at the top was created by using the largest die from the Seasonal Labels Dies. NOTE: when layering the plates to cut, make sure the top plate only covers the area of the die that you want cut. I added the slot die at the same time so I was only needing one pass through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine.
It's so therapeutic to color stamped images! The image was inked with Memento Black and stamped onto the Basic White tag piece. From the color palette of the Dandy Designs Designer paper, I chose to color with Stampin' Blends using the combo packs of Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Smoky Slate. For added dimension, the 'Birthday' portion of the image was inked again and stamped onto a piece of scrap Granny Apple Green, hand cut out and attached with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. Slip a piece of Balmy Blue & White Ribbon through the slot and finish off with some Smoky Slate Baker's Twine tied into a bow. Add this piece to the card front with dimensionals.
To finish the project, I scattered some Iridescent Pastel Gems (new from the January-April mini catalog) across the card. I love to decorate envelopes...gotta give the postal carrier something to enjoy during their route :)...I did a little bit of stamping with Calypso Coral and Balmy Blue ink on the front and adhered a piece of the Dandy Designs Designer Paper to the flap of the envelope. All set for a wonderful birthday celebration!
