Would you like to create some cute bday cards?
I wanted to make a birthday card for my grand niece's first birthday, and I thought Little Ladybug would be perfect! You can pick up this adorable limited edition stamp set for FREE when you host a qualifying party, but only during Sale-A-Bration.
I started by stamping the cute ladybug on white card stock and then masked the image using a Post-It Note. Then I stamped the flower over the mask to give the illusion that the ladybug was standing (or sitting) on the flower petals.
I didn't color in the images until after I selected the designer papers I wanted to incorporate into the design. Once I made those decisions I could then select the coordinating Stampin' Blends to use. I chose Ivory, Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive, pulling the colors from the paper images.
For the Happy Birthday greeting I embossed it in white on black card stock. Then I used my Paper Snips to cut around the letters. I attached it to the card with a strip I cut off the edge of some Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inspiration to make a birthday card came from the card sketch layout you see on the left.
