Stripes and Frame Birthday


This card was inspired by the same challenge as yesterday's card. Again using the colors; red, pink and light blue. I used embossing on this card also. The stamp and embossing folder are from the Sizzzix/Hero Arts Stripes and Frame set.

First I embossed the card base with the embossing folder.
Then I colored the stamp using markers and a small ink cube. Then spritzed the stamp with water before stamping to add a watercolor look.
Added a little glitter to the red outline of the sentiment frame, a few punched butterflies and a scalloped border punch to the side of the card.

The challenge is the CR84FN47 Challenge and the colors are seen below and the stripes remind me of the ribbons hanging from the swing.



Same inspiration but two totally different looks.

Thanks for visiting!

  10. I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
