Happy 2014!! I hope everyone’s start to the new year has been a great one! I am starting the year off fresh by thinking about birthdays, so today I have a few birthday cards for you mainly using one stamp set from Studio Calico’s card kit. Let’s get to it! >>
For this card I started off by stamping the candles on white cardstock and using gold glitter to accent the flames. I topped the whole of the candles off with glossy accents and set them aside to dry. Next, I trimmed a piece of lavender cardstock and stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner. I added the strip of gold striped washi tape and used dimensional adhesive to adhere the whole strip to the card base. I placed a short strip of gold glitter tape underneath and attached my candles to the left side of my lavender cardstock strip at the very end. For the inside of the card I used another sentiment from the same stamp set in black.
I had a CRAZY difficult time photographing the color of the sentiment on this card so please forgive me. To make this one I started off by stamping a pattern on the bottom of a kraft cardstock base and then rounding the bottom corners. I adhered one of these lovely pink flowers centered in the stamped pattern. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and adhered it with dimensional adhesive and finished the card off with some of these fun white stars. For the inside of the card I stamped candles in color and the sentiment on top in smokey grey.
For the last card I started off by making a stamped candle border around the outside edges and adhering a piece of white cardstock on top. I stamped a separate set of candles to another piece of white cardstock, cut them out and adhered them to the card. I stamped the sentiment, trimmed, and adhered it on top of the candles. For the inside of the card I used two sentiments put together from a separate stamp set.
And that’s it for today! Be sure to check out Studio Calico’s latest kit and I’ll see you next time. 🙂
