A Swirly Birthday

I'm working on cards for my classes coming up the first week in May.  Today's card uses the Swirly Bird stamp set.  I really haven't used this one in a while.  I'm also using the Big on Birthdays stamp set.

Swirly Bird birthday

This is pretty much a one layer card, but there is a lot of stamping.

  • The card base is Rich Razzleberry measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.
  • The Whisper White layer is 4 x 5 1/4.
  • Stamp the sentiment in the center of the white layer.  I used Basic Black Archival ink.  I will admit that I used the MISTI to ensure that the writing is dark and solid.
  • The colors used are Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Wild Wasabi.  Just stamp away!  I did start with the largest circle first and then filled in with the other flowers.  Some are stamped off for a little lighter color and some are not.  Add in the leaves wherever they will fit.  When you are happy, stop!

Swirly inside

Here's the inside of the card.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful You stamp set.  Just add more flowers and leaves.

I think this is a happy card and should brighten anyone's day if you want to change the sentiment on the front.  Just let your creative self free!  Thanks for coming by today.
