Hi everyone, thank you so much for stopping by.
I swear, every time I turn around I'm out of Birthday Cards, and to be honest I don't even know where they go.
My oldest daughter's 10th birthday is coming up right quick and I wanted to create something that was fun, but a little more mature because she isn't so little anymore. I loved the design so much (Thanks to Michele for the inspiration!) that I ended up creating two cards.
I really do need to create more backgrounds, I love to do it and I always end up wondering why I don't do it more often. Funny how that goes.
|In Cracked Pistachio|
|In Tattered Rose|
To create these cards, I masked at a diagonal an inch and a half away from the corners. I created both backgrounds by sponging on the colour (Cracked Pistachio for the first, and Tattered Rose for the second), then used the same colours to stamp the fern in a repeating pattern.
I then die cut Lawn Fawn's Happy Birthday to You die, four times for each and stacked them up. I masked halfway through and used the same colours to sponge the bottom half.
I adhered the die cuts down with Ranger's Multi Medium Matte and used a long block to hold it in place while it dried.
I added three gems to the top of the card for a bit of balance, using colours as close as possible to the inks.
I hope you like today's cards and are inspired to create something of your own.
