Hello! Its time for another challenge at Seize the Birthday and there are No Toppings this time. So you can join the fun with any birthday project that you’ve created!
I am presenting a card that I have made for my Papa, his birthday is just in a couple of days (not to worry, though he does look at all my cards, he doesn’t check my blog at all, so I am completely safe putting it here)!
To make this card, I used Fabriano Elle Erre Ferro card stock, like the stripes in this card, though they are not very visible in these images. I used distress oxide inks to stamp the flowers and leaves from Reverse Confetti Buds n Blooms stamp set, masking each image as I stamped the next. Though the DOX inks react with water to glow lightly, unfortunately, they didn’t work that well on these cards, so I had to layer them, with white pigment ink in the bottom. Once done, I fussy cut the edge.
Once done, I masked all the images again, then stamped the background, Simon Says Stamp Emma, using black ink. I then stamped the sentiment, from Honey Bee Stamps Hand Lettered Alpha in black ink, then traced over it using Uniball Signo Silver gel pen. I also used the same pen to add dots on the flower images.
For the envelope, I used a dark grey paper, stamped the same image from Simon Says Stamp and Honey Bee Stamps, and wrote over it using the same silver pen.
Hope you are inspired by this card, and join the fun with both the challenges! Head to the Seize the Birthday challenge blog to get more inspiration from the DTs, and our Surprise Party Guest Lindsey!
