Make a Wish

Welcome to catalog launch week - day two!  Did you notice that in the new Annual Catalog, there were BRAND new fun Bloom Benefits?   For every $75 you spend, you get to choose one of these fun items as a free Thank You for your order!  How amazing is that?

And onto today's card inspiration: 

When I was playing with the new Letterboard Sentiments stamp set, I knew there was a possibility of some fun graphic cards made with the words.  I'm reaching the point of the year where I ALWAYS need a ton of birthday cards, so it seemed that starting with that theme would be a great jumping off point!

This bright, and cheery, birthday card was easily created with multiple colors of ink, and the new Letterboard Sentiments stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey.  #fsjallday

I began this card, by stamping the Celebrate stamp onto a piece of Whip Cream Card Stock in varying colors.  I kept a baby wipe next to me to wipe the stamp clean in between each shade, and stamped my way across, and down, the panel.  Then I stamped a piece of Beach Ball Card stock with the Make A Wish sentiment and heat embossed it in white.  I took a scrap of Citrus Cooler and cut a flame shape, then added a bit of Gold silk to the center.  A panel of embossed Electric Lime, a strip of Black Licorice, a vellum circle, and a Watermelon Fusion mat completed the card front.  While assembling, I sprinkled just a little Sparkle Silk on the background, before adhering the vellum circle and candle.  

This bright, and cheery, birthday card was easily created with multiple colors of ink, and the new Letterboard Sentiments stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey.  #fsjallday

This fun and very bright and cheerful card will make a great addition to my birthday card stash.  It actually went fairly quickly.  I think it would be easy to make assembly line style.

What color combo would you use on a birthday card like this?

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
