Another Clean and Simple card share today… this one is a remake of a more layered design featured in last weeks’ post HERE… the other card featured more layers. Today’s card is a 5 minute card, kid friendly and one I made with my Senior Stampers in the last weeks of April!Pretty in Pink Designer Series Printed Paper was dragged through the stamp pad and stamped with a small flower image from the itty bitty bits stamp set. The regal rose ink provides enough contrast to make the flowers stand out and ‘pop’ against the printed paper background.The pretty cupcake and birthday sentiment are combined into one stamp in the Easy Events stamp set… no need to align greeting with the image and stamp separately! After stamping in Early Espresso in, the image was colored using pool party and regal rose markers.
A small pool party ruffled ribbon was attached below the focal image using three mini glue dots. When working with seniors, I pre-tie the bows and sometimes even add the glue dots to the back of the bows too… the tiny dots are difficult to see in some lighting situations.
After adding the glue dots to the back of the bow, I simply put the bows back on the glue dot roll…. it’s easy to lift off bow/glue dot combo and place it perfectly on their card fronts!
Wow.. can you believe tomorrow is May 1st? Demos are just one week away from the new catalog sneak peek and preview… lol then we’ll be offering sneak peeks and previews to all of you too!
