I’ve been procrastinating making a birthday card for Kimberley, until I realised that her birthday was coming VERY quickly! It took me forever to decide on what stamps to use, colours etc…. I eventually ended up CASEing a card from Betsy Veldman’s blog. I’ve used all Stampin’ Up! products to create this, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. It’s a bit pretty and frilly, so I hope Kimberley likes it. (If nothing else, she will appreciate the time it took to make 🙂 )
Here’s some details on the flower – it was so much fun to make (though definitely time consuming!). I stamped the three largest flowers from Petal Pizzazz onto Whisper White cardstock, using Pink Pirouette ink. Any light colour will be fine for this step. I cut out the flowers, and then turned them over. The largest flower is a die-cut from the Blooms Again pack – on the Last Chance List right now!
I inked up just one blossom from a stamp in the Embrace Life set (another thing on the Last Chance List – can’t believe it, I love this set!) using my Regal Rose Marker. After that I painstakingly (sorry, lovingly 🙂 ) stamped that single blossom onto every petal of my cut out flowers. The top three flowers were sponged with Creamy Caramel ink (again, check out that list!), and the die-cut bloom sponged with Pretty in Pink. I used my bone folder to gently curl up the edges of the petals to create some dimension. Here’s a close up pic of the flower.
Thanks for looking!
