And now, here's Amy to tell us all about her project...
It’s always fun to let color and pattern take center stage on a card, and what better occasion than a birthday?
Today I’ve combined some patterns from the Double the Fun paper pack to create a bright, cheery background. I accented the “seams" with some ribbons, trim, and some black and white Baker’s Twine.
For the sentiment, I pulled out the fabulous birthday set, Big Bold Birthday. To get the multi-colored sentiment, I just colored onto the stamp with markers and huffed on the stamp before stamping. Multiple colors with just one impression — gotta love that about rubber stamps! I die-cut the sentiment into a circle using a circle die, sponged on some Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink (before removing the cut circle from the die), then adhered the sentiment to a tag.
The top of the tag is finished off with some green and white striped ribbon and some more black and white Baker’s Twine.
I rounded the corners of the background panel and mounted it onto a Peapod card base. Last, I adhered the tag and sentiment piece, slipping the bottom of the tag underneath the baker’s twine. Don't forget to eat cake!
