I typically have a fairly clean and simple style, personally and in my card making. But just like it's fun to get dressed up every once in awhile, it's also fun to make a card that's a little more "fussy," like this playful birthday card:
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Hello Love, Cheep Talk, Endless Birthday Wishes
Paper: Baked Brown Sugar, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Gumball Green, textured Crushed Curry, Whisper White card stock
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Bermuda Bay, Gumball Green, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Woodgrain embossing folder, Cloudy Day embossing folder, Stitched Hillside Borders dies (Lawn Fawn), Petite Petals punch, owl button (Babyville Boutique), Jolee's by You flowers (EK Success), Word Bubbles Framelits dies, stylus, Dimensionals, Mono Multi liquid glue
I had a lot of fun choosing all the different textures and details for this card, but I think my favorite part is probably the tree. Originally I wanted to use the tree image from the Nuts About You set and just stamp it, but the proportion wasn't right for the owl button. So, using that image as a guide, I drew my own tree on Chocolate Chip card stock, cut it out and then embossed it with the Woodgrain embossing folder.
I really enjoyed making this card, and I love the final product. Do you like to make involved, detailed cards, or do you prefer to stick to clean and crisp style?
Thanks for stopping by!
