Birthday Greetings- A Color, Sketch and Theme Card



Hi Stampers! 


If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites- they have wonderfully diverse Design Team samples as well as inspiration from their galleries!

To create this card:

Using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp the background stamp and sentiment onto a piece of Vellum.

Color the image from behind using Stampin’ Write Markers- Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky and add the highlights with a stylus and piercing mat (again, from the underside of the stamped image).

Trim the vellum panel and mount onto a piece of Soft Sky cardstock (the same size of the vellum panel). 

Add the strip of Basic Gray cardstock along with the Basic Gray bow created with the Bow Builder Punch.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Wild Wasabi cardstock with the Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and add a strip of Basic Gray cardstock at the top of the embossed panel.

Mount the embossed panel onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, trim and mount onto the Soft Sky card base.

Mount the focal image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and add the retired Wild Wasabi button to the bow center to finish off the card.

 Stamp Sets: Corner Garden, Wetlands

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, Stampin’ Write Markers- Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Gray, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi

Accessories: Big Shot™, Chevron Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Bow Builder Punch, retired Wild Wasabi Button
