This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is an Inspiration challenge. The photo is filled with so many great images just in time for celebrating the Fourth of July.
The card I created is for dear friend celebrating her birthday this month. I wanted to make it festive and fun and what better way than with fringe. I created the fringe strips with Stampin’ Up’s! fringe scissors. I cut 2 inch strips in Watermelon Wonder, Very Vanilla and Island Indigo. The ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting is stamped with Versamark and Watermelon Wonder and for sparkle I heat embossed it with Iridescent Ice. To see the sparkle click on the image to magnify. The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri set and embellished with basic rhinestones colored with Sharpies. I tied Metallic Baker’s Twine and stamped the flower in Island Indigo from retired Beautiful Bunch stamp set and embellished with 2015-2017 Watermelon Wonder In Color Blossom accent.
Be inspired by the photo and join us at Hand Stamped Sentiments. I know you’ll find something in the photo to inspire your project.
All products are Stampin’ Up! unless noted.
