A Friendly Hello Birthday Card

Hi, welcome back!  Trying to catch a deadline.

This card is for the Paper Players Sketch Challenge (#569) and I selected the colors from the current Facebook Colour INKspiration Challenge (#112).

Here is the result:



  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic White cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Mint Macaron cardstock. 
  • Tri-Panel Split: Left (1¾” x 4¾”), Top and Bottom Right (1¾” x 2⅜”) Basic White cardstock dry-embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Sentiment Tag: (2⅝” x ¾”) Basic White cardstock scrap.  The sentiment, Hope you have the Best Birthday, a sneak peek from the Friendly Hello stamp set coming this January was stamped with Gray Granite ink and punched out with the Treasured Tags Pick a Punch.  The edges of the sentiment tag were colored with Mint Macaron ink and a Sponge Dauber.
  • Focal Image – Bird on Floral Branch: (2⅜”) Basic White cardstock.  The image of the Bird from the same stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink and again in Gray Granite ink and heat-set with Clear Embossing Powder.  The image was colored with Stampin’ Blends: Daffodil Delight. Poppy Parade, Mint Macaron, Gray Granite and Basic Black.  A light coloring of Mint Macaron ink was added to the background with a Blending Brush.  The image was then die-cut with the (2⅜”) circle die from the Layering Circles Dies set.

All of the elements were adhered to resemble the sketch.  The focal image and sentiment tag were popped with Dimensionals and a small Basic White Baker’s Twine Bow was added to the edge of the circle die-cut image to complete the card.

It is my very good friend’s birthday today and we will be celebrating this evening. 

Thanks for spending some of your time with me today.   Cheers,  Jolanda!
