February is fast approaching and that is our busiest birthday month with 6 relatives having birthdays. I like to have quite a stockpile of cards to choose from so I can make sure to get them in the mail on time!
The new Sale-a-Bration set Big Day is really fun...1) you can get it for free with a qualifying purchase! 2) it has that fun chalkboard font that's so popular and 3) it encourages you to eat cake! (and ice cream too! I used that stamp on the inside of the card--you'll just have to trust me!)
I used a past sketch from Freshly Made Sketches from a few weeks ago; it was too fun a layout to skip using!
I wanted to try embossing the sentiment with white embossing powder and then coloring different parts with my Blendabilities. It comes out really neat and is a nice way to highlight the words. I also used the Coastal Cabana blendabilities to color the 3 rhinestones on the side.
The DSP pieces are from the Best Year Ever Sale-a-Bration freebie. Doesn't it go so well with this stamp?
It's hard to see in the photo but I used my Simply Scored scoring board to dry emboss a frame around the Whisper White panel. It's a subtle but nice element.
