Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone! Happy Tuesday! Today's card is one I made with last week's Viva la Verve! sketch. I was totally inspired by the colors in the Retro Kitchen inspiration photo.


I used the new Birthday Wishes Plain Jane for my focal piece, embossed in black, then colored with Copics and layered on dimensionals. The black mat is cut with the Labels 8 Nestabilities, and I added a few little rhinestones for accent. The Bermuda Bay background is stamped with the coordinating small flower from Feel the Sun and the white panels are embossed with the Retro Squares background. I finished off with a big ole' polka dot bow.

What's In It?
Stamps: Birthday Wishes Plain Jane, Feel the Sun (Verve)
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Basic Black (SU!)
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Copic markers
Accessories: Labels 8 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Retro Squares (Cuttlebug), polka dot ribbon (SU!), gold stickles, rhinestones

  12. Hi! I am just starting to get in to making cards, I have been scrapping for 8 yrs now. But can you tell me what sizes you use to make your cards? I really admire your work.
    I usually do the 51/2 x 41/4 size, but yours look bigger than that.
    Thanks.
