Today is Seize the Birthday Thursday:)! The new Topping’s option for next fortnight is
SCRIPT or TEXT BACKGROUND
If you want to, you may enter any newly created birthday card, as we have always Anything Goes challenge too :)!
I actually had one card in my mind, but it became three :)!
I started by making a cutting file for the white panel, a broad frame with integrated calla lilies. I cut it from a textured white cardstock with my Cricut, but the outline of the lilies was too thin (see the last card :)). So I made another one with thicker outline, and of course it was too thick (here the second card :)) haha!
So I had to correct the lilies again and it was just right !!!
And this is the one 🙂 !
The background was created using alcohol inks (Aqua, Limeade, Sunshine Yellow and Gold) on Yupo paper. As I have no script stamp, I used birthday sentiments from Penned Sentiments by The Ton. I stamped them with Archival inks in light blue and light green on the Yupo panel. I stamped the sentiment in Noir on the white frame and foam mounted it onto the card. To finish off I added some sequins.
The second card was made using the frame panel with the thicker outline of calla lilies.
Here I used Mountain Rose, Peach Bellini, Aqua, Limeade and Gold to create the background.
The last one shows the lilies with thin outline. It was too thin to mount it using foam tape. So I glued it flat onto the card.
The background on this card was made using Distress Oxide inks (Broken China, Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint and Cracked Pistachio). The sentiments on the background were stamped in DIs.
Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today. It was not intended to have three cards, but I love them all!
