Hey, everyone, it’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! This month Danielle is our host and today she is challenging us to make a [belated] birthday card.
I started with a Sweet Tooth Card Stock base, then stamped up some patterned paper. Using LLD Border It – Mod Borders, I stamped a rainbow design with, from top to bottom, Lemon Drop Ink, Orange Fizz Ink, Red Hot Ink, Grapesicle Ink, Blu Raspberry Ink, and Sour Apple Ink. I left a small gap in between each color, then went back and hand drew in some random lines with a black pen. I added a strip of this to the left side of my card base, then a strip of Black Licorice Card Stock before adding a Sweet Tooth Card Stock panel that I dry embossed with Starry Night Stencil, popped up on foam. I stamped up another patterned paper using the same color inks and Confetti Background. I cut a balloon from Balloon STAX Die-namics, one from Blu Raspberry Card Stock stamped with Steel Gray Ink and Grid Background and another with Happy Birthday Background stamped with Steel Gray Ink on Sweet Tooth Card Stock. All three balloons were popped up on foam and had black hemp attached and tied together. The sentiment was stamped on more Sweet Tooth Card Stock with Steel Gray Ink and also popped up on foam.
On the inside is a sentiment from Birthday Sentiments.
