Need inspiration or ideas for a card layout? Look no further! Today’s card uses the second sketch of a new blog feature called the Stampin’ Pretty Sketchbook! I will share a sketch with you (below) along with a card that uses the current sketch (above)! You can see the first sketch via my blog post here.
If you want to play along, please post to any public social media platform using the hashtag of the sketch. The hashtag for today’s sketch is #sps002. Please note: since this is new and just published, it may take some time for the hashtag #sps002 to start showing card creations! The more people upload, the more it will display relative results.
On Tuesday I shared “Take 5 Stampin’ Pretty Color Combinations” with you and, as promised, I am sharing a creation using one of the 5 color combinations. Today’s card uses Pretty Peacock, Highland Heather, and Soft Sea Foam. Missed it? You can see the remaining color combinations on my blog post here.
The Birthday Dies is a set of 5. One of them quickly crops the entire cake and one crops the beautiful flowers to quickly add depth and dimension. The Birthday Dies set was the runner up in my most recent blog poll which can be seen here.
The Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set can be earned for FREE with a qualifying $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration. You can read more about the Sale-A-Bration Promotion here.
To create the card, start with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Pretty Peacock card stock.
Layer and adhere a 3 1/2 x 5 piece of Whisper White Thick card stock to a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Soft Sea Foam card stock with Snail Adhesive.
Use the Stamparatus to position and stamp the sentiments in Pretty Peacock Ink onto the Whisper White card stock as shown.
Zip through a die-cutting and embossing machine tucked inside the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. (You can download my PDF sharing 5 Tips for Embossing Folders here!)
Adhere a 3 1/8 x 1 1/4 strip of Highland Heather card stock as shown with Snail Adhesive.
Double wrap a piece of Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine around all pieces, securing with a bow on the left-hand side.
Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Use a die-cutting machine to crop a piece of Whisper White card stock with the largest Stitched Shapes Circle Die.
Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Crop the cake stand and the sprigs in Pretty Peacock card stock using the Birthday Dies.
Use the Stamparatus to stamp the cake (Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Thick card stock two times.
Crop with the coordinating Birthday Dies and a die-cutting and embossing machine.
Color with the following Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends: Pretty Peacock, Highland Heather, and Soft Sea Foam.
