This last weekend was my card workshop and this was one of the projects we made. Some of my ladies get intimidated easily, so I do try to keep it fun and simple. This one fit the bill quite nicely.
The card base and ink are bermuda bay, even the glimmer paper that is hi-lighting the candles. That glimmer paper has been super fun to work with, I will be sad to see it go away at the end of sale-a-bration this month. I will probably get one more pack with my order this month. Maybe it will be put into the new catalog this summer? One can only hope.
I die cut the candle framelit three times along the strip of very vanilla and adhered a strip of glimmer paper and daffodil delight paper underneath. Such a nice accent. That little set was then added to another strip of bermuda bay for the top layer. The sentiment was direct enough, stamp and punch, my favorite.
The background piece is from a great paper stack. I must have used half of it so far. That is unusual for me, I don’t always love so many of the patterns. Yes for sure this time around. I gave the ladies several choices for their cards and they all looked so different depending on the background piece. Fun stuff there! The inside earned a stamping of ‘Happy Birthday’ from the coordinating stamp set, window shopping, because I didn’t like it on the front. It was a distraction. Can’t have that!
Have a creative day!
