So - I wanted to make a special birthday card to celebrate their 5 years!!
I used some new products and some older which is only fitting I think. I started out by creating the embossed background and embossed it in gold embossing powder. I then die cut from the Party Balloons die set, the heart from New Leaf card stock, and I also die cut the number "5" from Quinn's 123 die set from Audrey Blue card stock. I also stamped the coordinating stamp onto the die cut and embossed it as well in gold. I also die cut one of the strings from the Party Balloons die set True Black card stock. I set those pieces aside. I stamped the microphone from "Stay Tuned" in Lawn Fawn Black Licorice ink. I fussy cut the microphone out ( which I normally don't like to do ) and I wanted to wrap the balloon string around the bottom. I did a little more stamping on my main panel using some more of the new Lawn Fawn Inks in Cranberry, Fake Tan, Sunflower, Freshly Cut Grass, and Mermaid and I stamped the music notes also from Stay Tuned. For my sentiment, I used the Happy Birthday from the stamp set #Awesome, and the "To" and the "You" from Thank You Tags. For a final touch I added some wink of stella to the microphone for some shimmer. I had to be careful with it though, b/c I noticed that I had smudged the black ink a bit, which surprised me a little since this is a fast drying ink...it must be the card stock I was using.
I put all my elements together, and placed them onto a 5 inch square card.
Happy Birthday Lawn Fawn!!!!! Here's to many more years of happiness with awesome creativity!
See you all soon!
