Hot Pink My Best Friend Happy Birthday

It is amazing to me how different colors and layouts can make the same image look different. I had used this stamp set on another card. On this card I pulled out a favorite background die that has horizontal lines and a great circle opening that is a perfect placement for a sentiment.

I cut the die from white cardstock. To add dimension and visual interest foam tape was cut down to add behind each of the horizontal lines. If you remove the paper backing to the foam it can be easily shaped and adhered around the circle opening. The horizontal stripes were then adhered to a top folding cardbase.

This card uses pink flower clusters and mint green leaves. The flowers were placed onto the top right and bottom left of the circle. Foam tape was placed under the flowers to support them where needed so that they were level with the horizontal background.

For the sentiment a My Favorite Things “happy” die was cut from gold mirror cardstock and again from sticky back foam and adhered together. The same pink ink used on the flowers was applied to a small piece of white cardstock, which give you a perfect color match for the secondary sentiment, which was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed gold. This sentiment was die cut using a Pink & Main Sentiment Strip. Foam tape was added to the back of this strip. Both the die cut sentiment and the sentiment strip were added to the center of the circle with liquid glue.

Ranger Gold Stickles were added to the center of the flowers. This ties in the gold die cut word and enhances the overall design.
