Welcome to another Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge. For this challenge we have a sketch.
Now as I add this sketch picture, I realize that I left out the line across the top. I guess we'll just have to live with it this way. I apologize, but I'm leaving it! Here is my card for today.
The Perennial Birthday stamp set sure lives up to its name. There are a lot of great sentiments. It's great with the Perennial Birthday Project Kit, but it's also great on its own. Here it is paired with some of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.
The card base is Rich Razzleberry measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4. The dots are stamped randomly over the card in Rich Razzleberry.
The banners are from the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. They both measure 2 x 4. Use the Triple Banner Punch to notch the ends of the banners. Add to the card. They will stick over the top of the card. Just turn the card over and trim with your snips.
I wanted the flowers to stand out against the banners, so I added a circle of Watercolor Paper cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. To soften it a little, use the ink from the lid of the Old Olive ink pad and your Aqua Painter to spread some color for the background.
The flowers and leaves are part of the Perennial Birthday stamp set. Just use the small stamps to build the flowers and leaves as you wish. Color these with the light and dark Rich Razzleberry Blends and the light and dark Old Olive Blends. You do need to fussy cut the flowers. I felt that a little more was needed and added some razzleberry stems cut from the Flourish Thinlits. Add the flowers with dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday set. Stamp in razzleberry on a 1/2 inch scrap. Notch the ends and attach with dimensionals.
The inside of the card is all from the Perennial Birthday stamp set. I did stamp the flower on scrap paper, color, and cut out. I wanted it over the dots.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Do you have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? If not, I would love for you to consider me! Need catalogs? Just let me know and I'll send them to you.
