Peachy Birthday

Hi guys

So here I am back with my second card of the day, please scroll down to see my first post.

This card actually took three attempts to make.  I started off with a very different central panel but it just wasn't working so I decided to use stamped stripes instead.  Then, my first attempt at stamping these went horribly wrong, I must have my specs on wonky today! :)

Anyhow, here it is finally finished!

I started by adhering the glittered polka dot cardstock to the card base.  Next I cut a smaller panel from white cardstock and stamped diagonal stripes, then rounded the corners and added the sentiment.  I adhered this panel to the background using 3D foam.  I did intend to adhere this flat but the glittery cardstock needs a very strong adhesive to ensure things stay put!  Next I stamped and die cut the flower and leaves.  A few pearls finished off the card.

Materials used:

  • Cardstock: Kanban - Sherbert Pips; white cardstock from stash
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Basic Stripes, Say It In Style and Fancy Florals
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Fancy Florals
  • Ink: Versa Color - Cinnamon, Seashell and Sage; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Pearls from stash
  • Tools: Tonic - Corner Rounder
