Build A Birthday
This is one of the cards we made at the stamping team meeting last Wednesday, using the Build a Birthday stamp set that will be available June 2nd. Since it's photopolymer (completely clear) it's easy to see exactly where you're stamping, making lining things up a breeze!
I used the cheerful colors in the Cherry on Top DSP Stack as inspiration for the card. And that's a good tip for anyone who has trouble choosing colors for their card - just start with some Designer Series Paper and pull a color combination from it. Stampin' Up! colors coordinate beautifully, so you can hardly go wrong!
To illustrate how easily this card came together, I designed and made it in less than fifteen minutes. And now that it's designed, I can duplicate it in about five. Woohoo!
Here's the recipe:
5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White, scored at 4-1/4" for card base
2" x 5-1/4" Cherry on Top DSP, adhered to left side of card front
3-1/4" x 4-1/4" Crushed Curry for mat behind image
3" x 4-1/4" Whisper White, stamped and adhered to Crushed Curry mat
Fasten matted image panel to card front with Stampin' Dimensionals
