Eimear brayered Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape Inks onto Whisper White Card Stock and then cut out the "happy" with the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die (retiring). She stamped "birthday" from the "Itty Bitty Birthdays" set in Granny Apple Green Ink onto a Whisper White circle that she cut with a Stitched Shapes Die. She adhered the die-cut "happy" onto this circle and cut the side off for a cute effect.
Next, Eimear stamped the flower from the "Tropical Chic" stamp set in Melon Mambo Ink and sponged Gorgeous Grape on the edges. She stamped a leaf from the same set in Granny Apple Green and sponged its edges with Shaded Spruce Ink. She cut both these elements out with the matching Tropical Thinlits. (PROTIP: You can purchase the "Tropical Chic" stamp set and Tropical Thinlits in a bundle and save 10% off from purchasing them separately--but only until June 3rd. These items will be carrying over to the new catalog but the bundle won't.) Eimear also used the Tropical Thinlits to cut a palm frond from a Silver Fold Sheet.
To assemble the card, Eimear started with a Thick Whisper White Card Stock card base, cut lengthwise. She layered on a 4" by 5-1/4" Whisper White Card Stock panel that she had embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder. She added some Silver Metallic Thread and then adhered the circle piece to the card, using Stampin' Dimensionals. She layered on the die-cut elements and finished the card with the pretty Glitter Enamel Dots.
What a lovely card! I'm so glad I got to swap with Eimear!!
