The stamp set being featured at WWYS this week is Flourishing Phrases, my “go to” for sentiments with beautiful font and meaning.
My daughter’s birthday is later this month, and I found the perfect verse for her card in this stamp set: “God wanted to brighten up the world…”
And, I love how the sentiment is completed on the inside, “SO HE MADE YOU.”
While I’m here, I’ll tell you that the border around the sentiment is a Swirly Frames stamp, the flower was made with a Flourish die, and “Happy Birthday” is from the Piece of Cake stamp set.
Lemon Lime Twist is definitely a bright color, and I chose that for the card front.
I began by stamping the image of two leaves from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. Using VersaMark, I stamped randomly, and off the edges in places. Then, I sprinkled Clear embossing powered over my stamped leaves, and set it with the Heat Tool.
Although, hard to photograph, you can seen the shine when the light catches it.
I gave my heat embossed leaves a border of Whisper White cardstock, taped two pieces of Organza Ribbon (retired) in place, and glued it to a Granny Apple Green card base.
The sentiment is stamped in Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut with a Stitched Shapes oval die, and placed on dimensionals.
The branch and three flowers are from the coordinating, Flourish die set. The branch is cut from Thick Whisper White cardstock, and the flowers are from Pineapple Punch, Calypso Coral, and Mango Melody cardstock. They just seemed to call for Black Faceted Dots in their centers.
The envelope flap is decorated with a piece of 6X6 In Color Designer Series Paper, which you can see in the first two pictures. I cut a piece of DSP, 5 3/4 X 2 1/4, use liquid glue around the edge of the flap, press the DSP to the flap. and trim the edge with Paper Snips, using the flap as a template.
My layout was inspired by this week’s challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.
And, one final look at the completed birthday card for my daughter.
