Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! It’s Amanda hanging out with you today. I don’t know about you but I try to stock up on birthday and all occasion cards whenever I get the chance. It seems that we’re always needing one when I don’t have time to make it. So today, I’ve got a super sweet birthday card to share.

I pulled out my Sweeter Than stamp set, stamped them all, colored and then die cut them. Then I started on my background. I blended picked raspberry and dusty concord distress inks and spritzed them with water. Then I used my blending buddy brushes and added more dusty concord over the top half of the thinner layer of my Catching Some Rays stencil. Next, I used white pigment ink over the wider layer of the stencil set. Then I added some washi tape from my stash and die cut the panel.

Now, I added foam squares to the back of all my candy pieces and arranged them across the card front. Then, I stamped the outer parts of my sentiment in black and heat embossed the larger “sweet” in white so it stood out. 

I popped this panel up on a card front with foam tape and started on finishing touches. For those, I added glossy accents to half of the suckers and Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the other half. Then I scattered some jellyfish jewels throughout the card front. I love extra shimmer and sparkle. It never gets old! 

I just love how bright and fun this card is! The recipient is sure to enjoy the sweet thought that went into making it. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
