Spring Card Camp 2 Day 6 Color Blocking Wishing You a Happy Birthday

For my last card using the coloring blocking technique shared by Laurie Willison for the Online Card Class Spring Card Camp 2 Day 6 I decided to use just pink and turquoise blocks.

As previously discussed I used typing paper covered in dotliner adhesive to adhered the block together, aligning the lines of the music. Once they were adhered together they were cut down using a stitched rectangle.

This time I decided to cut along the musical lines, creating a curved border for the top of the block. This left me some white space at the top for adding the die cut and stamped sentiments.

The sentiment was die cut from the same pink cardstock used for the word block, but before cutting pink ink was blended at the bottom of the strip to add an ombre effect. It was cut again from white sticky back foam to add dimension to the sentiment.

A white panel of cardstock was cut with the same stitched rectangle that had been used on the color blocks. The color blocks and die cut sentiment were laid on top to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment with a light gray ink.

Sticky back foam was added to the back of the block rectangle. It was adhered to the white stitched rectangle that already had the two sentiments adhered.

At the last minute I decided to add some candles to each of the color blocks in an alternating color. Ranger Gold Stickles was added to the flames of the candles. The focal image panel was then adhered to a top folding cardbase and the card was done.
