This card is for my brother who has a birthday coming up soon. I am delighted with how it turned out and hope that he is too. I can't take full credit because I cased the card on page 20 from the annual catalog while making some changes.
The Whisper White card base is 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2". I stamped the moose with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink and then used Aqua Painters with Island Indigo & Old Olive Ink being careful not to color the moose.
The card is anchored with a piece of Old Olive Cardstock that was stamped with the Dictionary stamp in Old Olive Ink. I am very partial to that look – how about you? What do you use to anchor your cards?
This piece is topped with an Island Indigo striped pattern found in the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. In turn, that is topped with a narrow strip of Island Indigo card stock.
In order to pull the eye upward, I created an Island Indigo Banner that is topped with a piece of Basic Black 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon that is folded and adhered to the banner. A small Basic Metal Button is threaded with Old Olive Baker's Twine & glue dotted to the ribbon.
The sentiment from Yippee-Skippee is colored with Island Indigo & Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers. The cake from Little Buddy Birthday was stamped in Tuxedo memento Black Ink & colored with the same markers. The sentiment is punched with the Decorative Label Punch & the top is trimmed off.
So much of the product that I used on this card is retiring. If you would like to copy this card, be sure to get the following stamps & paper before they are gone.
