A Bright 26th
Happy Wednesday internet friends,
Today I want to share an adorable birthday card I made for one of my best friends for her 26th Birthday this year. To make this card I used inspiration from Colour Me Creative Challenge #72 and Paper Craft Crew sketch #145. A cute layout and a fabulous color combo.
The colours for this card are Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Whisper White. I took the provided sketch and rotated it to get this look.
To make this card I first spritzed the front of a 6x6 Whisper White card base with Pear Pizzazz mixed with rubbing alcohol. I added a piece of retired DSP (only now realizing it it Coastal Cabana... oops) layered with some retired So Saffron Grosgrain ribbon. I also added one piece of Daffodil Delight stamped with Gorgeous Grunge, and one piece of Daffodil Delight with Gold Washi tape.
I used a piece of Pear Pizzazz in the Modern Label Shape and layered it with the chalk talk framelits.
I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White CS and coloured it in with Bermuda Bay and then layered it with a piece of vellum, both were cut with the tag from the chalk talk framelits. I also added a clip and a simply pressed clay button embellished with white bakers twine.
To make the butterfly I sponged a piece of Whisper White with Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, and Daffodil Delight. I then cut out the butterfly with my Silhouette Cameo. I added some sparkle with the retired smooch paint and an old sponge. This card is beautiful (but quite bulky when I mail it), I hope my bestie appreciates it when she gets it next month.
Here is a close-up of some of the details of the card.
