Hello and welcome back to my blog with the lovely ladies from Art With Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop.
Today is week 47 and we are playing along with So Saffron which is one of the Subtles Collection Colours.
So Saffron is a lighter colour for the yellow family. I decided to use the Beauty Abounds bundle for a dear friend of mine who’s birthday is coming up soon.
The So Saffron Cardstock was used for two of the butterflies and the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch. I love this punch and you can do so much with it, so once punched out I decided to attach it to a strip of Shimmery White Cardstock. The stripe effect was created by using So Saffron ink and an Aqua Painter, so simple and effective.
I used Whisper White Thick Cardstock for the card base. I find this is best as it’s stronger than normal White Cardstock. I also used White Cardstock for one of the butterflies. I lightly sponged over the butterfly with a Dauber and So Saffron ink to give it a delicate soft look.
The Beauty Abounds Cling Stamp Set was used for the background of the card. I just stamped off before stamping on the card with So Saffron Classic Stampin’ Pad.
The Happy Birthday! is from the Amazing Life Stamp Set which is retiring soon. I heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder on So Saffron Cardstock.
To finish off the card I used the Whisper White Flax Ribbon and Iridescent Sequin in So Saffron.
