Hello friends! I'm back today, sharing a couple more cards I created for the March Papertrey Ink release! I am loving the new release format, which spreads the release inspiration out over five days following the 15th!
Today I have two cards to share with you, both using sets illustrated by Lizzie Jones!
I don't know about you, but I always seem to be needing a masculine birthday card! I thought the new Offbeat Birthday set would be perfect to create some easy to assemble cards to restock my depleted stash.
I started by die cutting the numbers (I used the By The Numbers Mats die set) out of three different colors. I wanted bold colors, but still with an earthy feel so I chose Tropical Teal, Kraft, and Dark Indigo. I then adhered them to a Soft Stone mat and card base.
For the focal image, I started by die cutting the stitched rectangle (from the Noted: Scalloped A2 Vertical die set) out of Fresh Snow Linen Cardstock. I embossed the sentiment from the Offbeat Birthday stamp set onto the rectangle and then adhered it to my card using dimensional foam. For an extra pop of color, I die cut the smallest star from the Seeing Stars die set out of Canyon Clay cardstock and adhered it to the rectangle.
I decided on a soft, feminine theme for this next card. :-) I started by stamping a Fine Linen cardstock layer with the new Beautiful Berries: Spring stamp set. I seriously cannot get enough of this set! I want to stamp berries on ALL the things! :-)
Once the background was stamped, I die cut the two holes using the new All Tied Up die and then attached my balloon. This is just such a clever and fun way to send birthday cards, don't you think?
I stamped the sentiment (from the new Inflate & Celebrate stamp set) onto a die cut banner (from the Banner Style die set). I popped the banner up using dimensional foam. Before adhering my top layer to my card, I used a stylus to create an embossed frame around the Kraft card base. I love this technique because it gives the illusion of more layers without actually creating more bulk!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I'll have more projects for you tomorrow!
