Pretty Birthday Card

Here's a birthday card I made for a sweet little someone in my life.

I rather enjoy the All in the Family stamp set because you can personalize it for the card recipient. I've also used the Family Accessories to doll up this birthday girl, and the Family Phrases for the Salutation.

I've used the Pretty in Pink card stock which is a delicate color that's only available for a limited time as part of the Fall 2008 In Color selection.

I stamped the image onto watercolor paper, so I could paint the background. For easy water-coloring, simply squeeze a stamp pad while closed, so that some ink stays in the lid. Use a blender pen or aqua-painter to pick up the color and apply it to the paper.

I used the following ink colors for this card: Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Rose Red, and VersaMarkOther card stock: Old Olive and So Saffron.

Embellishments and tools: white taffeta ribbon, circle rhinestone brad, dimensionals, small oval punch, black and clear embossing powders, and heat tool.

Contact me if you are interested in making a similar card or ordering any of the materials I used.
