Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m up today on the SugarPea Designs blog with this card. I realized that I was missing birthday cards in my stash, particularly gender neutral ones. So I decided to create one that I can make using different color combinations.
I loved this SugarCut – Happy Birthday Script as a starting place and built the card around it. Using white card stock, I inked on Distress Oxide Inks in Salvaged Patina, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade. These seemed like the perfect summer color combination! After I did a basic application of ink, I used the Skinny Stripes Stencil and re-applied the colors. I love how the tone over tone inking makes for an easy yet detailed background. I inked the same colors on an extra piece of white paper and cut out the sentiment. To help the sentiment pop a bit against the background, I cut some vellum with the SugarCut – Stitched Rectangles and added the die to it.
I hope you like this card and all the color possibilities. A fun way to enjoy a day in the craft room making a whole series of birthday cards! Thanks for stopping in today. See you tomorrow for the latest from FMS.
