Welcome to the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop for December!! This month the theme is a Sale a Bration or Mini Catalogue Sneak Peek!
I really really enjoyed creating this card! This set is called Happy Birthday To You and is a Level 1 Sale a Bration set. Meaning you can get it FREE with a qualifying order of $90. Both the Sale a Bration and Mini Catalogue starts on the 3rd January.
Now, I’ve also used another set from Mini Catalogue called Label Me Bold. I have a feeling I’m going to get soooo much use from this set. Especially that Happy Birthday Stamp!
I started by stamping on Fluid Watercolour Paper with Versamark and then used White Embossing Powder to emboss it. The colours I’ve used are Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Smoky Slate.
The Seaside Spray layer has been embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder. A small strip of Rococo Rose card behind the Watercolour Paper is pretty much all the extra layering I did. I’ve kept the embellishments simple with a few of the clear sequins from the Peaceful Poppies Sequins pack. When you spend time colouring a focal image, it sometimes pays to keep the rest of the card fairly clean.
EDITED: I’ve had a huge response to this card, thank you all so much. Many of you wanted to a tutorial on how I coloured the cake. So I have since made a video for you all. You can find it HERE
So now it’s time to check out the rest of the Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop for December – Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!! – Alisa
