Blend & Stencil
Hey! I had a ball creating this card. Blending colors and stenciling is so easy and fun. I hope you enjoy the video.
The products I used to create this card are listed below, in text, linked to the sites where you can purchase the product, if you choose. FYI. A few of the products are no longer available.
The finished card size is 5.5 X 4.25 inches. I applied Soft Suede and Bermuda Bay inks (Stampin' Up) on a 5.1/8 X 3.7/8 inch layer of Whisper White Cardstock (Stampin' Up) using Blender Brushes (Simon Says Stamp) to create the background.
To spice the background up a little bit, I added a pattern to the layer by using the Diamond Circle Stencil (Simon Says Stamp) and Sahara Sand Ink (Stampin' Up). Then, I adhered the background design layer to a piece of 5.25 X 4" Chocolate Cardstock (Paper Source) and then placed those two layers on to the 5.5 X 4.25" (folded) Bright White Linen Cardstock base (Paper and More).
I finished the card off by placing the Happy Birthday die cut piece (that I created myself) on the card.
I hope you enjoyed the video. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Happy Crafting!
