Gingham Celebration - Stampin' Up! Birthday Cheer

  To go along with the sunshine today I've got a bright and cheerful card to share!  This color combo was out of my comfort zone at first but the more I played with the colors the more I liked how cheerful and sunny it was.

  We made this at my last stamp club and it shows off a variety of different products; the Birthday Cheer stamp set, the Gingham Gala DSP, Stampin' Blends and the Stitched Rectangle framelits.

  When there is a large sentiment in a stamp set I can sometimes just default to using it only on the inside of the card because it seems too big to use on the front but why not highlight it as a focal point and use the other images as the extras?  

  We stamped the large sentiment in Smoky Slate and cut it with the Stitched Rectangles framelits.  The gift is stamped in Highland Heather and then the bow and heart are colored with Stampin' Blends for that fun pop of color and then fussy cut.

  All the stamped images are popped up over a layer of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala DSP on a Grapefruit Grove card base.  The little sprinkles stamp is stamped on the card front.

  Moral of the card?  Don't be afraid of bright colors and use those big sentiments on the card front!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
