Today is my Mama’s birthday. She would have been 96, and I know she would like to hear me saying these words to her in Heaven. The Sale-a-bration, Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Paper, is “happy” paper, and perfect for today’s card.
The first thing I did was cut the colorful, dotted paper, with a Bouquet Of Love heart die. Then, I backed the heart with cardstock, and placed it on Dimensionals.
The striped paper beneath the heart is also Sunshine & Rainbows Designer paper, cut with an Ornate Layers Die. You can see all of the beautiful patterns in my Product List, where you’ll also see the price is $0.00, because it’s FREE with a qualifying order of $50!
Next, I used a second, Ornate Layers Die to cut the middle from the die-cut, striped paper. Then, I used that second die to cut from Basic White Cardstock, where I would stamp the sentiment in Memento Black Ink, and glue it inside the striped paper. This is known as the “inlaid technique.”
“You make my heart happy” is from the Sale-a-bration stamp set, Catching Butterflies. This is another FREE item with a qualifying purchase of $50, which is pictured in my Product List below.
The background is Basic White Cardstock, cut with the third, and largest, Ornate Frames Die. Then, I gave it texture with the Tasteful Textile Embossed Folder, and glued it to a Thick Basic White card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″.
For a final touch, I added three Iridescent Rhinestones.
I was inspired by the sketch at Fusion.
And, the theme at Paper Players.
