I have two quick birthday cards to share today. Actually, it's two slightly different versions of the same card. Which do you like better?
Supplies (all Stampin' Up!®):
Stamps: Patterned Occasions
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White card stock; silver glimmer paper; Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Honeycomb embossing folder, 1-3/4" circle punch, 2-3/8" scallop circle punch, Sticky Strip, Dimensionals
This card was the make-and-take project at my Sale-A-Bration hostess club meeting last weekend, and I let the stampers choose which version they wanted to make. I thought everyone would choose the more colorful option, which was made by using markers to color directly on the stamp. But the monochromatic option was actually more popular. I suppose I shouldn't be too surprised; monochromatic cards are often easier and faster to make (no need to worry about which colors work together), and they are very striking.
The Polka Dot Parade DSP, which was used for the tails of the focal piece, comes in six colors: Rich Razzelberry, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red. This would be a fun to card design to make in each of those colors and then give away as a card set or just keep in your own stash of birthday cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
