Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch


SoSocial Happy Birthday


SoSocial Handmade Birthday Card created for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 117 by Pam Staples

I'm so excited to be sharing this fun, bright Birthday Card with you as part of this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #117! The card base starts with Whisper White Card Stock layered with Daffodil Delight and another layer of Whisper White with Melon Mambo stamped background using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  Following along with the Card Sketch, I added a small layer of the Brights Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Stack using the Daffodil Delight.  Then I added a 1" strip of Tempting Turquoise with Melon Mambo 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.  The featured stamped image is the ampersand from the @SoSocial Stamp Set stamped with Melon Mambo Classic Ink then layered with a Bermuda Bay 2 3/8" Scallop Circle.   I then added the Melon Mambo Bow with a Daffodil Delight Flower with a Bermuda Bay button in the center which is placed over the banner stamped with teh #birthdaysrock image which is stamped using the Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink.

SunnyGirlScraps Tips & Tricks:

  • Accents help finish off cards and on this card I used some Daffodil Delight Candy Dots to create balance and interest.
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to help create depth.
  • When I use buttons, I pretty much always have to use linen thread or the baker's twine to "finish" the look of the button.
  • Use either the 1" square punch or banner punch to create the fish tail on the end of a banner.

I invite you to pin any of my creations to Pinterest and to share your thoughts or questions by leaving me a comment.  I love hearing from all my readers!  Click here to also follow me on Pinterest.
