Hey everybody! Happy Tuesday – I hope your week is going well! Now that Spring is here, we are getting snowed on one last time! It started raining several hours ago which turned into snow. I need to get cat food and pick up a prescription today so I hope it doesn’t last long. Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’ve popped in to share a cute bi-level birthday card I created for Prickley Pear Stamps. I had the best time playing with the Flourish Border stamp set and coordinating Stitched Scallop Border die set. And you know me and pretty colors… I just couldn’t resist coloring these candles to coordinate with the striped patterned paper!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110# cardstock along with additional panels from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock and The Paper Studio Four Seasons and Everything In Between paper pad. Using dies from the Stitched Scallop Border die set, I cut off a diagonal portion of the front panel of the card base and the additional white cardstock panel to be used on the inside. I adhered the striped patterned paper to the inside of the card base and rounded the bottom right corner. Using the same die set, I cut a border element for the front of the card base from CutCardStock Stardream Metallic Lagoon cardstock. I stamped the candles and sentiment from the Flourish Border stamp set in black ink, colored the candles with alcohol markers and added detail with a Posca white paint pen. I colored the candle flames with a Sakura Clear Star Gelly Roll pen, and finished the front with gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Andradite Sparkle, Brilliant Citrine, Topaz Twinkle, Morganite Muse, Amethyst Accent and Aquamarine Ripple Embellishment Mixes applied with the Trinity Pick Up Stick.
I adhered the diagonally-cut white cardstock panel to the inside of the card base and stamped a sentiment from the Play Day on the Beach stamp set in black ink.
And one more look… I sure love how this turned out! These colors are awesome! This card was a booger to photograph – the front flap wouldn’t stay down and I had to lay my heavy metal pokey tool down on one side!
