Birthday Wishes

I wanted to try something different with this card.

Instead of stamping flowers with ink and card stock, I wanted to use washi tape and either punch them out or use framelits for the shape and size I was looking for.

So I made sure first that I had washi tape in the colors for the color challenge I was going to enter this card.


I found two of the three colors.

Delightful Dijon
Rich Razzleberry

So these are going to be the colors of my flowers.

I took a piece of my Whisper White and adhered pieces of washi tape in the area I wanted to cut out into flowers.

With my bone folder I curled the edges of the petals and the leaves for some added dimension besides the dimensionals behind the pieces.

I used the sketch from Just add Ink (#JAI275)

I used the color combination and theme from The Friday Mashup (#FM221).

The Mashup Challenge:
Create a project using shades of Dijon, Olive, Razzleberry.
Create a project inspirered by Summer Flowers.
or Mash it Up! and create a "Summer Flowers" Project using the colors above.
