Hello peeps and happy Thursday!
Today I'm sharing a birthday card that I created for a card order I've been working on.
I love a good sketch to give me a starting point when it comes to creating a card so I used the Deconstructed Sketch #47 for my layout and turned it on it's side. Another great source of inspiration for me other than surfing the many talented bloggers out there on the web is Pinterest (a virtual cork board for things you like). One of pin boards I have on Pinterest is a board just for things that give me ideas for stamping things like photos, posters, ad work, different print work and more. When I saw THIS fun print created by Suzanne Carpenter, I knew just which stamps I could use to try and recreate this cute scene.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Tea for Two Additions plus the teacup die, Little Bitty Bird and die and Little Bitty Bird Additions. I die cut and stamped all three of the teacups and the bird (like how he covers the hole in the top of the tag?) and added foam tape to just the bottom two teacups as I stacked them together. I added a little detail to each of the teacups with punched pieces and buttons to add some fun, I think this card has a bit of a folkart-sy look to it with the colors and layout.
Usually I don't photograph the insides of my cards because to be honest even though I always end up stamping the inside and the envelope there's usually not that much to look at. But today I thought why not (yes that's a roll of sewing pins holding my card in place, lol).
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
