Belated Birthday- Three in One!
I hope all of you had a relaxing Labor Day weekend!
My husband had to work part of today but we were able to enjoy some time together this afternoon (watching the US Open).
You can never have too many birthday cards, so I created this card for The Paper Players PP62 Birthday Challenge using the colors from this week's Pals Paper Arts PPA109 Celebrity Color Challenge and the Just Add Ink JAI83 Sketch Challenge (you may notice that this card is a "Belated Birthday"- it seems as though I do tend to miss a few:-).
The Big Shot made quick work of this card- a bit of Embossing (Herringbone and new Snow Burst EF), Die Cuts- 3” Originals™ Circle Die, Fun Flowers Bigz™ L Die (stamp the Calypso Coral flower with the background stamp in Basic Gray, run through the Crimper). Add a few Punches- Decorative Label Punch, Lace Ribbon Border Punch, 2 ½” Circle Punch and a few Stampin' Write Markers- Basic Gray, Calypso Coral, Riding Hood Red (use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Basic Gray marker) for stamping and the card was almost finished! Finish off with some sponging, spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint, add a Corduroy Button and of course, a few Pearls. If you have any questions regarding any of the techniques, please feel free to ask:-)
