A soft Spring card for an awesome person celebrating a birthday. This card features Impression Obsession stamps and die.
Putting It Together
I started with the idea of green and pink and birthday. I used multiple stamp sets to have exactly the look and message I wanted. I love that tree. It's so versatile. Someday I'll even use it with the reading kids that come in the set.
I used the sketch from Feeling Sketchy as the idea for the layout.
I chose papers, a die, and sentiments from 2 sets to build the sentiment I wanted.
With the papers trimmed and the die cut, it's easier to see where the card is going.
The "happy" is from a sentiment "think happy". Since I only want "happy", I used a Post-It as a mask while inking up the sentiment.
This way I get just the portion of the sentiment I want without having to cut it apart. Birthday came from a different set, so I was happy the fonts matched up. I should have given a nudge more space between the two words. Before I stamped them on the background papers, I had adhered the papers together.
I decided the tree was a little plain so decided to add a bird. I stamped a bird from yet another stamp set on a scrap of white pearl paper with black ink.
I fussy cut the bird and snipped off the legs to let me perch it in the tree.
I added the tree and bird with Zig glue pen for a mostly flat card. I also added a ribbon and three soft pink rhinestones.
Inside, I stamped the sentiment from one more stamp set and added a scribbled heart from the same set as the bird.
