Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop!
Today’s Blog Hop today is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
As my friends and I have gotten (a little) older we have realized how critical it is to show up for each other. One of the things I am committed to doing is sending more birthday cards and goodies. Not every one has a significant other and when you have college age kiddos you are happy for a random text. Girlfriends become more importnat each year!
I thought this card would certainly make anyone feel special and cared for on their birthday
The card base is Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White cardstock. I love how fancy and impressive it feels. I added a layer of our regular Whisper White cut to 4 x 5 1/4″.
I stamped the sweet little flowers from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set diagonally across the Whisper White in Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise. The Beautiful Peacock stamp set is one of our SaleABration sets and is free to you with a minimum $50 purchase.
I added some of our Glimmer Dots for a festive sparkle. I love that they have adhesive on the back for a clean and simple placement.
the main image is stamped in a combination of those same 3 colors again: Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise.
I added lots of colorful layers and dimensionals under the layers for an extra wow factor.
The sentiment is also from the Beautiful Peacock stamp set and is stamped in Tempting Turquoise and cropped out with one of the small scallop circle punches. I layered it onto a Lemon Lime Twist Circle.
I love that this card looks special, but actually came together rather quickly with the emphasis on the artwork and layers of cardstock.
I had all of the supplies out and on my stamping table so it was really easy to create the card below, #bonus
The only additional product I used was the Petal Pair Embossing folder. I love how it elevates this clean and simple card to a WOW
