Hello! Its a new challenge at Seize the Birthday. The topping this time is ‘Presents’.
You can choose to make a card with the topping (theme) or to make birthday card without the topping – just make sure it is birthday themed!
Here’s the card I made for inspiration –
I have a few stamps with critters carrying or coming out of presents in them. But I made that plan B – I wanted to make something that would have a present as the main focus. But, since I don’t own any present dies, I tried using the good old scale and cutting knife to make my own present. And this is the result –
After cutting out a present shape, I heat embossed it in gold a few times, to raise it a bit. I then adhered this over a scrap piece of cardstock, on which I had stamped My Favorite Things Lacy Background using Black Soot distress ink. Keeping this aside, I blended Black Soot on the background, and stamped the stars and stuff (from Mama Elephant Bear Hugs and JustRite Bokeh Builder) using Black Soot and Memento Galaxy Gold inks. The sentiments are from Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold and Party and The Big, The Bold and Extras stamp sets.
So that’s my card. For more inspiration, pop over to Seize the Birthday blog!
