Good morning peeps,
did you see it? Today starts the 300th! issue of the Everybody-Art-Challenge! Unbelievable how quick time flies!
I didn't made another Christmas card (although I should have done *hihi*) but this time I created a card for a special birthday!
This turned out pretty colorful and totally reminds me of Spring ;o) – quite a change to these grey and cold November days.
My card is based on the sketch that we are provided by Andrea/Emmi41 for this week:
I used some Stampin' Up! products from this year's SAB time: the «Petal Parade» stamp set and the Designer Series Paper called «Sweet Sorbet» – love these colors! Because of the busy patterned paper I cut my front panel from SU «Pool Party» cardstock using the Lawn Fawn «Stitched Journaling Card» die.
The vellum doily was cut with a die from SU (Sizzlits «Large Delicate Doilies»). Then
I gold embossed one of the flowers from the stamp set which is also printed on the patterned paper in the background. On the front panel I continued with some heat embossing in clear and white. The sentiment is by Clearly Besotted Stamps («Say It
On this close-up photo you can see all the heat embossing a bit better – I really like the look of it:
The numbers were cut from KARS Glitter Cardboard with the «Typewriter Numbers» die from Memory Box. I punched the butterfly (SU «Bitty Butterfly» punch) from vellum and added some tiny pearls to the body. For adhering the front panel I used some foam pads for a little bit dimension. To finish off my card I stuck some golden thread and a piece of chevron ribbon underneath.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
