Seize the Birthday – Stripes


Hi there.  I’m back today with my second guest designer card for Seize the Birthday and the optional topping this round is Stripes.



I chose to use the toppings again to create this colourful birthday card.



First, stamped the dragon and cake piece with Memento black ink on Neenah cardstock.  Coloured them with Copics then fussy cut them out.  Used my paper trimmer to cut a piece of mixed media paper down to A2 size.  Blended Distress Oxide inks (Candied Apple, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean) with a mini blending tool.  Overlapped the colours to get secondary colours.  Spritz with water and lifted with a paper towel for some texture.



Next, die cut the Large Stripe cover plate from regular white cardstock then black heat embossed the sentiment with clear glitter embossing powder.  Finished by adhering the elements onto a white top folding card base.




And that does it for me, but click HERE to see the beautiful birthday cards from the fabulous design team at Seize the Birthday.  Hope you will join us!  Thank you for dropping by.  Have a wonderful day.
