This card is inspired by yesterday’s and also by the Pals Paper Arts challenge this week. It’s a very sweet combination of colours, so I’ve produced a sweet card.
Here’s the colour banner which inspired this, my fifth Paper Pumpkin March 2016 alternate.
I first cut a large circle in a piece of spare card using the circles framelits and then held that over my very vanilla piece. I used two of the stamps from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit, Pocketful of Cheer and mint macaron, blushing bride and so saffron ensuring that I stamped over the edge of my mask. I decided to continue with the circles and stamped the sentiment (from the same kit) in mint macaron onto a scrap of very vanilla and then popped it out with a punch. There was something missing so I grabbed my blushing bride cotton 1/4 inch ribbon. I don’t use ribbon a lot but when I do, this is my favourite. It’s so easy to work with. I wrapped a piece of the ribbon around the very vanilla layer and fixed it on the back. Then I glued down my sentiment circle. The very vanilla piece was then mounted on a mint macaron card base. Finally I made the bow and attached that with glue dots. It amused me that my iron gets the most use in ironing ribbon for carding!
The envelope liner was made using the envelope liners framelits dies and paper from the 2015-2017 in colors DSP stack in mint macaron. and did you notice the #I’mbringingbirthdaysback also stamped on the envelope? I’m continuing my plan to give out more cards although today’s card isn’t helping much! I definitely need more male birthday cards.
I’m working out the details of a Customer Loyalty program and I’m excited to be announcing the programme very soon.
See you tomorrow,
