Elementary Elegance Birthday Card

I have quite a few friends with birthdays this month and one of the cards I made was inspired by PPA’s color challenge of Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy and Very Vanilla.  Beautiful colors!  For the Birthday stamped image here’s a sneak peak of the Elementary Elegance stamp set in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  Sale-a-bration begins later this month on January 24 through March 31.  During this event you earn free products from the catalog with every $50 purchase.  How cool is that!

The Birthday frame is heat embossed with pewter embossing powder.  The sentiment is stamped in Not Quite Navy and clear embossed.  I used the Elegant Lines embossing folder for the background and butterflies die cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits.

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is to create a project with dies…any dies.  With the Big Shot I created this card inspired by Sandi Maciver.  I used shabby chic colors again – Rose Red, Crumb Cake, and Pink Pirouette.  The base of the card was created with the Scallop Square die them embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The Crumb Cake layer was created with the Circle Scallops #2 die then embossed with the Elegant Lines embossing folder.  The flower was created with the Cherry Blossom Embosslit  and the butterflies were created with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit.  Embosslits Dies are great because they simultaneously cut and emboss.  Love the Embosslits.  The swirls were created with Swirls Scribble Sizzlits die.

For some shimmer I  smooched the card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch.  I hope you can see the shimmer.  I love this Vanilla Shimmer Smooch because it’s just the right amount of shine and so easy to apply.  Make sure you use the Color Catcher to prevent your work area from ink overspray.  I then embellished with basic pearls and Victoria crochet trim ribbon.  Very easy card to make.

It’s a great card to demo at workshops because it shows the versatility of the Big Shot.  I hope my card inspires you to get out your dies out and participate in the challenge.
