Happy New Year! I’m looking forward to all that 2017 has to offer. This past year has been pretty hectic, so I’m hoping to slow down a bit and allow time for posting about my various projects.
This Fabulous Friday, the Sisters In Stamping decided to begin 2017 with birthday cards that can be used throughout the year. By making a bunch of different types of birthday cards, you can be prepared at any moment, instead of making (or buying?) those last-minute birthday cards!
For my card, the Pun Intended photopolymer stamp set was paired with the Pop of Pink Specialty DSD. A bee-day sentiment was embellished with a bit of Metalic Gold Thread from behind and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. This hostess-only stamp set is super fun and cute! I was sure to stamp some extra bees in Melon Mambo on an envelope, matching it perfectly with the card.
Using my Paper Snips, I fussy-cut three bees stamped in Tuxedo Black on Melon Mambo cardstock. I then adhered them to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals making them look like they are flying over the card. Next, I created some shine and texture by applying Fine Tip Glue to the bees’ wings and sections of the body. It takes a bit to dry, but then you’re left with glossy embossed look without any sticky glue residue.
Here are the products I used to make this project. Need any of these items to recreate it for yourself? Just click on the thumbnail below to start an order through my online store!
