As usual, I hope you enjoy our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop, in which fellow demonstrators from around the world share their latest impressive projects. This month’s theme is ‘Happy Birthday’. If you have arrived from Shirley Merker’s blog, I am sure that her project was inspiring, as always!
The card that I have chosen this month is an eclipse frame card. I have used two different stamp sets in this card.
The first is Painted Seasons, which is one of the Distinktive stamp sets, so all the shading happens in a single stamp. This is only available until the end of March as your free Sale-A-Bration item if you spend AU$180. It comes as a bundle with the Painted Seasons DSP. The images in this set are beautiful and I’ll be sorry when it is no longer available.
The second set is Humming Along. This is my stamp set of choice at the moment for a birthday sentiment.
To make the card, start by stamping the sentiment in the middle of the page, then stamp your flowers and leaves around it. These flowers look lovely in any colour. For this card, I used Highland Heather and Grapefruit Grove for the flowers, and Garden Green for the leaves.
Next, choose a Rectangular Stitched framelit that fits around the greeting and use a larger one to make the frame to your chosen width.
Stick your thin outer edge piece onto the card base, then put a foam adhesive strip along the inner and outer edges of the frame and stick it onto the card base inside the outer edge piece.
Stick the rectangle with the sentiment on it inside the corresponding rectangle in the middle of the card. (This is stuck flat onto the card base so that only the frame is raised.)
Below is a picture of the products I used to make the card.
