I meant to share the remainder of my aunt’s present a couple of weeks ago but completely forgot about it, but better late than never!
As promised today’s share is the card I created for Jill. It was made to match the small box. Again I’ve used the retired Parisian Breeze Speciality DSP, teamed it up with the same Pink Shimmer Card & used the lovely new Layering Square Framelits. I can see myself using these so much.
For a bit of a different look, I decided to cut the DSP on an angle. It is good to get out of your comfort zone sometimes. I added a stripe of Pear Pizzazz across the top to break it up a little.
I stamped “Happy th Birhday” direct onto a piece of Whisper White in Pear Pizzazz Ink. The Whisper White had been cut with the Layering Squares Framelits as was the Shimmer Pink Card which it was layered onto.
The “80” was cut a number of times in Whisper White using the now retired “Little Numbers” Dies & then once in Shimmer Pink. I layered the Whisper White to each other before finally adding the Pink Numbers to the top. I wanted the Numbers to pop a little from the Card.
The Fern was cut from a scrap of Pear Pizzazz Card using the “Botanical Builder” Framelits before sponging with a Sponge Dauber. The Flowers were cut from the same Shimmer Pink Card, sponged with Melon Mambo Ink. The middles were cut from Whisper White Card & adhered to the centre of the larger flowers before being adhered to the Card Front.
The card was then layered direct on a Whisper white Card Base before adhering Pearls to the centre of the flowers & scattering small ones around the card.
Jill was very happy with her card & couldn’t believe how everything matched. In fact, a couple of people asked me where I had purchased them gift as they had never seen anything like them.
Be sure to pop back to check out the Exploding Bag that went with it.
Until next time, Happy Stampin’
