After a long week in the Big Easy, I am happy to be back in my Craft Room! Today's card uses Basic Black Cardstock, Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, Modern Medley Designer Series Paper and Black Metal to create an elegant birthday card.
The base card is a half sheet of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut in half and then scored and folded in half. The next layer is Basic Black Cardstock 4 1/8" x 5 3/8". The Modern Medley Designer Series Paper (Music Pattern) is layered over that. The center strip is another pattern of Modern Medley Designer Series Paper layered on top of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and then Basic Black Cardstock. The Circle was cut using the #4 Circle from the Circle Collection Framelits. It was embossed using the Pretty Prints Textured Impressions Embossing folder and then popped up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The flower was created by punching 4 layers of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock using the Flower Punch. Three layers were spritzed with water and scrunched up. When dry, reassemble them on top of each other and adhere together using either glue dots or a brad. The flower was spritzed with Vanilla Smooch Spritz Spray.
Happy Birthday is from the Express Yourself Stamp Set. It was stamped in Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Very Vanilla Cardstock. The piece was then trimmed down and the right edge was banner cut using the corner of a 1" Square Punch. It was layered onto Basic Black Cardstock and that edge was banner punched as well. It was adhered to the front of the project using Stampin' Dimensionals. The Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding was decoratively cut using Craft Scissors and adhered to the project using Stampin' Dimensionals. The flower was adhered on top of the greeting and ribbon using Stampin' Dimensionals and Glue Dots.
