I have a great birthday card to show you - it was created for the challenge on the Greeting Farm blog last friday at THIS post. It was a No Frills challenge, which means that you weren't able to use frilly things like ribbon, flowers, lace, etc.
If you would like to check out THIS post, you will see that they chose me as the winner this week! Woo hoo! I don't know what I will get, but once I get it I will post the update! At the same post, they have announced this week's challenge, which is to use punches.
Here is my card:
I decided to make a larger square card for this one, so the card base is Whisper White and makes a 5 1/4" square card. The next layer is Pumpkin Pie (5 1/8" square), and the next layer is a really cute flocked paper from Heidi Grace (5" square).
For the horizontal layer, the Pumpkin Pie layer is punched with the Martha Stewart fence edge punch, then topped with a layer of So Saffron and Whisper White.
The sentiment is from the SU set Sincere Salutations, stamped in Close to Cocoa ink, and punched out with the Key Tag punch. There is So Saffron ink around the edges to frame it, and it is mounted on Dimensionals. Here is where I would have added the ribbon - it hurts.
The image is, of course, from The Greeting Farm, and her name is Birthday Anya. She is just THE CUTEST. She was stamped in Versafine Black ink onto white CS, embossed with clear EP, and coloured with Copic markers. I cut her out, and mounted her on with Dimensionals. The ovals are cut out with Nestabilities in white, So Saffron, and Pumpkin Pie.
Lastly, the button are from the Button Latte pack from SU. I tied Linen Thread in the centre of each and adhered them with Mini Glue Dots to the bottom left corner.
Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
