This Birthday Card was a lot of fun to create! I had a great time coming up with the color combination and the layout... it has some of my favorite colors! Those who know me, know well how much I gravitate towards bright colors. They have a magical, uplifting effect on me!
So it all started with the fun geometrical pattern paper that I decided to use from my stash. I then stamped out the sentiment using the Avery Elle Framed Fonts Stamp Set which has some text stamps and a border stamp. This allowed me to use two different ink colors on my main piece.
I then fussy cut the stamped sentiment and also flowers from the Avery Elle Oh Happy Day Stamp Set, and the cute bow that I had stamped using the Avery Elle Laurels Stamp Set, punched out a couple leaves using a Martha Stewart punch and arranged them on my card.
On some of the elements I chose to give some depth by adding dimensionals. I added a scallop trim and also a strip of darker blue to get some contrast. I also rounded off the corners with the half inch corner rounder from We R Memory Keepers.
The inside of the card was finished by stamping the word "Celebrate" from the Fiskars Make A Wish Stamp Set and I adhered a couple of fussy cut flowers as well.
