Happy Birthday Card!
Birthday cards are a must to have on hand! With summer birthdays to celebrate, it is imperative to have some made and ready to go, so that crafting them doesn't take precious sun time! See what Denise created today!
Ever since my son got out of school for the summer, it seems like I have less and less time for crafting! I’m sure all moms feel that way, and although I love my crafting, I so enjoy having my boys with me and doing all sorts of fun things with them. Right before school let out, I realized that I was running low on birthday cards, so I have had birthdays on the brain lately and have been making some birthday cards to replenish my stash.
When I saw the Sweetly Chic collection from Glimpses by Signify Pink, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Now, this collection offers a lot of wedding and anniversary themed embellishments, but the paper is all in black, white and gray so that means you can do almost anything with it. Since I don’t have any wedding or anniversary occasions coming up that require a card, I decided to make a birthday card with it to fill up my stash. Since the papers are all black, white and gray, I knew that I wanted to add a pop of a a bright color.
I decided to use an older collection of SVG files from Lettering Delights called Deliliah Tags. The first thing I did was take “tag2” and place it on my mat in Make the Cut. Then I created the part that I cut out of a black pinstripe by using the Boolean Join feature. To create it all I needed was another”tag2” bottom layer only and a rectangle to get this pretty tag with the decorative bottom edge. I cut that out of the Sweetly Chic paper and the original tag from eCraft Diecutable Cardstock in Bubble Gum and White Flour using my trusty purple eCraft of course.
Once all my cutting was done, I stamped the rose image on my white square in Archival Magenta Hue ink. This stamp is from Papertrey Ink Rosie Posie stamp set and then I stamped the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink Tag-its #10) in black.
Before putting it all together, I added the polka dot paper so that it completely filled up my card front. Love this paper! Now, if you would like to get your hands on some Sweetly Chic (or any of the Glimpses by Signify Pink paper) RUN because they are selling out their stock of these collections and once they are gone….they are gone!!!! If you are a wholesaler, you can purchase from HERE.
I hope all of you have a great week, but before I go….I have a question for all of you.
Am I the only one that is busting out of my seams with excitement that the eBosser is almost here???? We are almost in July and that means the eBosser is right around the corner!!! Can’t wait! Be sure to check back in at the Craftwell blog often to get more sneak peeks and info about the eBosser!
