I am so happy to share a card with you that is featured on the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog this week. Four weeks ago this challenge blog was introduced and I decided then I would try to enter as many weeks as I could, I totally missed last week. :-\ But this week I am honored to be the guest designer for the wonderful set called Big Day! I love this set!
Here is the card I created for the blog. I hope you will visit this fun blog and join in on the fun this week!
I know it seems like there is a lot going on in this card but it really came together fairly fast. I love the Chalkboard look so let's start with the greeting embossed in white on our new Chalkboard paper.
Then I wanted to add some pizzazz to the card with sparkle. The front of my crumb cake base was embossed with the polka dot textured Impressions folder so I mimicked the polka dots with Dazzling Diamond Glimmer paper that I sprayed with an assortment of Bright colored Ink Refills that I combined with alcohol in my stampin' spritzers. This was a lot of fun! I let it dry and punched out a few 3/4" circles and "threw" them on the card as birthday confetti!
I wanted the cake to shine through so I punched a 1 3/8" circle on the front of my card so the cake can be the star of both the front and inside of the card as shown here.
I colored my cake with Stampin' Write Markers and topped the frosting and candle flame off with a little dazzling diamonds and 2 way glue pen. It really makes it sparkle!
Add a pretty little bow with Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon and a little touch of the Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. So pretty and festive. I love how the saying outside and in states one of the best things, in my opinion, about a birthday. Cake & Ice Cream of course! (are you listening family? My birthday is next month and last year I had to buy my own cake! tisk, tisk)
