Today’s card was inspired by the tic-tac-toe challenge at The Paper Players this week. I went straight across the top.
My card today starts off with Pear Pizzazz cardstock. I then took a pattern from the A Whole Lot of Lovely DSP and matted it on Basic Black cardstock. I took another pattern and cut a 2′ strip and the end in a banner.
I used the Stitched Framelits to create a background to the diecut Happy Birthday. I cut circles out in Whisper White, Powder Pink, Pool Party, and Basic Black. I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set to create the stamped sentiments on two of the circles. I used the washi tape technique so as to be able to break up the sentiment. I stamped the first part in Memento Black ink and the second one in Versamark ink which I sprinkled with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed.
I cut out two birthdays, one in Whisper White and one in Pear Pizzazz. I cut off the “happy” part of it and layered one over the other. I wrapped around some Pool Party Baker’s Twine to finish it off.
