I wanted to combine the techniques I am learning at the Online Card class Heat Wave with Papertrey Ink's challenge of Create Along With Us. I chose Maile Belles's pretty Best Wishes card from July 11th for inspiration. I loved how she stamped in color then popped the sentiment out with black. Here is my take on her card:
I used Papertrey Ink's Delightful Dahlias stamps. I stamped the colorful "happy" with Simon Says Stamp's dye inks. The stamped the center "happy birthday" was made with Versafine black and Ranger Clear Embossing powder. I also stamped, embossed and fussy cut the leaves. I finished this card with a few black gems.
This card is entered in:
- The July Create Along With Us challenge at Papertrey Ink
- The "Flora and Fauna" Monday challenge at Simon Says Stamp
- The Daily Marker's 30 Day Coloring Challenge
