Svitlana is here. Today, I’m sharing a bright floral birthday card made using the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Never Stop Dreaming and featuring a very spring-y mint and pink color combo.
The card was very quick to make and even quicker to plan – the Project Kit already had all supplies I needed.
How-to: Bright Floral Birthday Card
First, I made the ink-pressed background using the embossing folder from the kit. I inked one side of it with the Volcano Lake Dye Ink, placed a white panel into the folder, and ran it through my die-cutting machine. I chose the side of the folder where areas between flowers are raised to be inked. So, I ended up having a mint background with white roses.
Next, I made the floral element. First, I white embossed it onto white cardstock using the stamp set from the kit. After that, I quickly colored it using the matching stencil and the following dye inks – Blush, Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry. For inking, I used the Large Ink Blending Tool, as well as the Mini Blending Brushes.
I decided to leave the leaves white to coordinate with the white roses of the background, as well as to make the whole card lighter.
After that, I die-cut the floral element using the matching die. Originally, it was quite long; it would spread from the top part of the card to the bottom. But I wanted to cluster flowers in the middle, so I cut them into two pieces, which were popped up onto the panel.
The panel, in turn, was foam-mounted onto a white card base using the Instant Dimension Adhesive Foam Tape.
I made the sentiment strip by white embossing a stamp from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set onto a white cardstock strip and then coloring it by swiping the Volcano Lake Dye Ink onto it.
The sentiment was popped up onto the card and several white sequins finished it off.
I hope you liked this floral birthday card and it inspires you to make something today. Thanks for stopping by!
