Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today I’m sharing a birthday card for my Mother-in-law. My husband made (yes, he made this himself!!! You can see it in my YouTube video below!) her a checkbook wallet and I wanted to wrap it up with tissue paper and some of our yummy, bright, Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon. The color was so cheerful, as I was tying the bow I thought to myself, I need to use this on a matching card. So I did!
I started with just a glimpse of an idea in my head, knowing I wanted to use this beautiful ribbon to match the wrapping on her gift. And from that blossomed this fun, Portrait/Frame card using the Peaceful Poppies Suite Bundle products. I used several items from the suite bundle. Some of my favorites include the sequins and elements.
I’m calling this a Portrait or Frame Card because it really looks like a work of art that has been framed and hung on a wall! The top card mat is popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals, which makes the Daffodil Delight background have a ‘sunken’ effect. And with the watercoloring technique I used to paint the Peaceful Poppies Elements, it really looks like a work of art! I love how bright these colors turned out!
I used the coordinating Peaceful Moments stamp set to stamp the sentiment Happy Birthday. I used the Painted Labels Dies to cut out the sentiment, but I ran it through the die cutting machine twice to get a smaller die cut. Check out my YouTube video to see how I did this. I then took my Basic Black Dark Stampin’ Blend Marker to color the border to make the sentiment stand out a little more.
And of course I wanted to stamp on the inside, so I used this sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I love how this set has coordinating sentiments so you can feature one on the outside and inside.
I really love how happy and cheerful this card turned out! The yellow just makes me smile, and I hope it made my mother-in-law, and you, smile too!
