Several techniques were used on today’s birthday card, along with the FREE, Sale-A-Bration, Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set, and Small Bloom Punch. Keep reading for details below.
First, I punched seven flowers from Whisper White cardstock, using the FREE, Sale-A-Bration, Small Bloom Punch. To give the flowers a pretty edge, I used a Sponge Dauber and Rococo Rose Ink. The centers were stamped in Early Espresso Ink, using a Thoughtful Blooms stamp.
Second, I decided on a “wooden” focal point, and made it with a circular, Painted Labels Die, and woodgrain, Pressed Petals Designer Paper. Because the woodgrain is dark, I used heat embossing to make the sentiment stand out. I stamped “Happy Birthday,” from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set, in VersaMark, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. These supplies are in my Product list for reference.
Third, I used stenciling for the background. The Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Paper makes great stencils, and they are easy to hold in place with “sticky notes.” I used a Sponge Dauber and Pool Party Ink with this pattern, applying uneven pressure, and partially covering the Whisper White Cardstock.
Lastly, I placed the “wooden,” sentiment piece, and blooms on Dimensionals atop the stenciled background, and glued this to a Thick Whisper White card base. The final touch was adding little pearls to the center of the flowers.
Global Design Project was my inspiration for today’s card.
