I love a good birthday card – festive, fun and to-the-point. On the surface, today’s birthday card is a quick-and-easy card, but take another look. This card required patience and time, but you can easily switch out some of the components to make it quick, easy and fun. Take a look:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- So, What Took So Long? The panels on this card were easy to assemble. It seems so straight forward, so why do I say it took time and patience to create? I’m sure you already noticed, but the middle panel of this card is stamped – I stamped the sentiment from Suite Sayings over and over with my Stamp-a-Ma-Jig. I started with a full panel but decided to crop it down for this card, but the stamping for this piece, alone, takes quite a bit of concentration. Do-able, but time-intensive.
- Layering. This card was constructed with a card base and three panels that just seem to work together. I snipped away at them a bit until I found the right balance I wanted. Three Regals Candy Dots balanced everything out perfectly. Here are the measurements for the three central panels on this card:
- Feeling Blue. I’ve been using a lot of blues lately – I guess I stayed away from them after using them so much during the Holidays. This week’s cards are almost all on blue (or blue-ish) bases, and there are more to come. If you like this combination of colors, feel free to save this:
Stamp Sets: Suite Sayings, Party with Cake Papers: Bermuda Bay, Night of Navy, Whisper White Inks: Night of Navy, Whisper White Accessories: Regals Candy Dots (Night of Navy), Stamp-a-Ma-Jig, Stampin’ Dimensionals
