Birthday

Birthday Card For The Young At Heart

Happy Friday!  I hope you have had a good week.  Today, I’m sharing another birthday card using the Young At Heart stamp set.  The sentiment is so appropriate for my friends’ birthday cards – we like to believe we are not getting older even though our bodies tend to remind us otherwise.

 


To make this card:

  • Start with a Thick Whisper White card base
  • Add a layer of Basic Black cut with the largest Stitched Rectangles die
  • Cut a piece of Thick Whisper White card stock to slightly less than 3-3/8″ x 4-5/8″.  Stamp the girls image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink a bit to the left of center of this piece.
  • Now for the fun part – color the image with your choice of Watercolor Pencils.  I used Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Gorgeous Grape, and Daffodil Delight for their outfits.  Blend each color using a Blender Pen.
  • Stamping the sentiment required masking the stamp using a Post-It note.   The larger font is stamped on a 1/2″ banner, and the smaller font is stamped in the lower right corner of the image.
  • Next, cut the Gorgeous Grape frame by using the second and third largest Stitched Rectangles dies.
  • Using the Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive, adhere the frame to the stamped image.
  • Adhere this to the black layer.
  • Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the banner.
  • Add some bling using the Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

I’m entering this card in the Sunday Stamps Sketch Challenge.

 

Tomorrow is World Card Making Day, so I hope you will have time to make and send a card or two to brighten someone’s day.

Thanks for stopping by!
