After creating the cards I shared on Wednesday, I used one of the leftover Stylish Shapes stamped circles and put together this simple and sweet birthday card. The colors of the Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems led the way for the colors I used in the card. And though the main image is the bird sitting on the sentiment, I couldn’t help but glitz up that adorable birdhouse.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Coastal Cabana Cardstock
- 4-1/4” x 11″ scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
- Basic White Cardstock
- Scraps for die-cutting 2-5/8″ x 5″ stitched rectangle and 2-1/8″ diameter stitched circle
- 4” x 5-1/4” (for the inside)
- After die-cutting and preparing the cardstock, use the Gray Granite ink to stamp the birdhouse about 1″ from the top and about 1/4″ from the left onto the vertical rectangle piece. Stamp the string connected above, then stamp the branch above that (and a bit below the house in the left lower corner). Color the leaves with Parakeet Party Blends Markers.
- Use the Fresh Freesia ink to stamp the “birthday wishes” sentiment and the Gray Granite ink to stamp the bird on the circle, and color the bird with the Dark Pool Party and Light Bermuda Bay Blends Markers.
- Apply some Parakeet Party ink in the lower right of the birdhouse layer so it will “glow” under the circle.
- Use the Fresh Freesia ink to stamp the inside sentiment layer. Then add this layer to the inside with Seal Adhesive and the stitched layers to the outside with Dimensionals.
- Embellish with the sequins/gems.
