One Layer Birthday Card // Card Creations

March 14, 2017

Hi friends and welcome back to another card creation share! There will be a lot of cards coming up on the blog because I am on a roll! Be sure to head over to my YouTube channel to catch more layouts and other projects. Now let's jump in to this one layered stamped card!

I recently received an order of a bunch of fun things from Whimsy Stamps which you can see a little haul over on my Instagram! This stamp set in particular, really caught my eye because of the beautiful brush script sentiment. I wanted to utilize this stamp set in a fun way and I thought a simple one layer card would be fun to try out. I would highly recommend a stamp positioning tool for this project because I did a lot of multi stamping. Plus, it is a lot easier to line things up using the grid on the stamping tools. 

I first started by centering the main sentiment. I used a Whisper ink to get a tone on tone stamping look. I noticed that the pink ink I had chosen wasn't the exact color I wanted, so I stamped it multiple times to get a darker look. For this method, the stamping tool is particularly helpful. I also want to note that the "happy and the "birthday" are separate stamps which makes them even more versatile. I was able to overlap them the way I wanted to.

After the main sentiment was done, I wanted to make a sub-sentiment border. Luckily, this stamp set comes with tons of options to go with happy birthday cards. I specifically used coordinating sentiments like "blow out the candles", "wishes for you on your big day", and "eat cake, make a wish & celebrate". There are other examples in the set, but I wanted the border to be as even as possible. I stamped the border with my stamp tool using the same ink as well.

Lastly, to complete the card, I used two sizes of clear sequins. These are both from Darice and they're perfect for any card! I scattered these in a diagonal pattern from the top left to the bottom right. That is it for this card. I love how it ended up turning out and it would be easy to replicate in a multitude of colors! Thanks for stopping by!
