MFT and Inkadinkado Big Birthday Wishes card

 


Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More. We've been having lots of sunny weather here recently and the garden has sprung into life with something new and beautiful to look at each day. I love this time of year - so much hope and promise to counter some of the horror going on in the world.



Its time for our birthday theme and I came up with this card that I made for my daughter's recent significant birthday:-



I began by inking a piece of card using Crafter's Companion sparkle pens to get a blue gradient for my background, and then cut it with a die from Waffle Flowers 5x7 inch Lacy Layers die set. I cut out the letters from the MFT Big birthday wishes die in a blue glitter card and stacked the top and bottom words to add some dimension.



The little images are from a very old stamp set from Inkadinkado called Hi Cupcake, and I stamped, coloured and fussy cut them before adding them to the card. I finished off by adding some glaze pen here and there to the images.

Nancy is our Guest Designer this month and you can see her lovely card, along with lots of inspiration for my talented Teamies over on the ATSM blog.

I'd like to play along at






I hope you are doing well in your corner of the world and I really appreciate you stopping by.

Hugs

I LOVE this big card Carol! I love how you took the shimmer pens and made a background with them, so sparkly, so shinny but subtle until you tilt in the light. I love the BIG bold sentiment, it grabs ones attention and just looks so cool. I also love the little added images and the colors. This is one fabulous birthday card! Hugs, Brenda

Lovely card for your daughter's birthday Carol!! The blue gradient background is so pretty ... love all the sparkle from the glitter die-cuts too. The bright pink icing on the cupcakes, flowers and hearts pop off that blue background. Fabulous! xx

Izzy Scrap said...

What a fabulous birthday card, Carol ! I guess that your daughter's favourite colour is blue and with this stunning card she must have been more than happy. Your background is just gorgeous and perfect to highlight the big and bold glittery die cuts. Also love the delicate touches of pink/red details. Wonderful ! Have a great week admiring your garden (our tulips are also in full bloom and I love it !). Hugs x

Such a charmingly fantastic b-day greeting! Its upbeat, timeless design would work for just about anyone of any age, which is always extra handy if one is making birthday cards to have on hand, instead of for a specific person in the moment.

Sunny hugs & joyful start of May wishes,
Autumn Zenith 🧡 Witchcrafted Life
