Celebrate with Flowers Happy Birthday Card. Ink Stamp Share Case the Catalogue Blog Hop. June 2021

Good Afternoon Everyone,

This afternoon I'm taking part in an Ink Stamp share Blog Hop and the theme for this one is the CASE the Catalogue.

Now CASE can and is interpreted in many different was, most commonly Copy And Share Everywhere or Copy And Selectively Edit - any can be right - like most things in craft it's our intepretation.

I have decided to CASE a card using the Celebrate with Flowers stamp set from pg 63 of the catalogue. I have kept the principal design the same, but have switch up the colours slightly so I'm only using In Colours.


Just Jade Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Basic White Card Stock

2pc - 2 7/8" x 5 5/8"

Fold your piece of Just Jade card stock along the score line and burnish well. Decide which will be the front, and the cut off 1" from the width to make the card front shorter.

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment in versamark ink on the inside of the card towards the right, so that it shows when the card is closed (as the front is shorter). Cover the ink with White embossing powder , gently tap off the excess and heat set using a heat tool.

Add one to the basic white pieces to the inside of the card, making sure it sits behind the card front when closed.

On the remaining piece of basic white, stamp the leaf image horizontally with the three colours. The way I did this was to stamp the leaves facing the same direct twice, one under the other with a small gap in between, then rotate the stamp and stamp again, this time stamping off first with your ink to create a lighter tone. I also started in the middle of my card stock to help judge my spacing.

I didn't have the fancy embellishments that are on the catalogue sample, so I decided to silver emboss some of the flowers that are in the stamp set - heat embossing the same way as above. 

Add this panel tot he card front and you are done, it's a really simple card and I can image this would look great in a variety of colour combinations.
