I hope you are all doing well. I am back with another birthday card this week. During the recent 30-day colouring challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin one of the things I did was colour some die cut images so that they were ready to be used on upcoming cards.
Here is my card for today.
This was a pretty quick card to make as the images were coloured and ready to go! I was also fortunate to have the background panel already made from my previous experimentation of dry embossing with stencils. I used Spun Sugar distress ink for this panel and applied it with clarity brushes to create this soft pretty pastel pink. To see how to dry emboss stencils, see my previous post.
I took my embossed panel and cut it using a stitched rectangle frame and adhered it to a white A2 base card. To add a bit more of a contrast onto the card as the colours were quite soft, I took a sheet of black and white striped paper and cut a few strips, adding one under the sentiment, and one as the floor for the little bear to stand on so that he is not floating around on the card 🙂
The sentiment, bear and balloons were adhered using double sided foam tape.
And what is a birthday card without some sparkle?! So I added some sparkle to his hat, the balloons and the icing on the cake. I also added a healthy coating of glossy accents to the balloons and icing.
Finally I just added a few sequins for some bling.
This card is going to my friend Niki. She uses a lot of soft colours, cute images and stencilled backgrounds on her cards, so I hope she likes this card.
Thank you as always for stopping by. I will be back soon with another project and I wish you all a sunny and happy weekend.
