Birthday Popper

by Karen @ Carefree Creations - Birthday Popper

I’ve had this set since it came out, but haven’t inked it. I decided it was time!

I wanted a bright and festive card, so that is how I chose my colors. I’m not a fan of pink, but it sure does get the point across for fun.

Design Point: I originally stamped the popper in Wisteria, but it was too light and not working at all. So I pulled out Royal Velvet but that was too dark. Thankfully Goldilocks remembered about generational-stamping! The popper is stamped with Royal Velvet, off-stamped first.

Why did I stamp the greeting in black? I have no idea. If I felt like re-doing it, I would probably use Royal Velvet (either full-strength or off-stamped).

This ribbon is from my stash. I have NO idea where it came from. It was too narrow on its own, so I wrapped it twice. Glossy Accents did NOT want to hold the bow on. I had to wait for it to dry and then use a glue dot.

Thanks for taking a peek!

  1. I didn’t remember this set at all – I had to go look it up at Papertrey. I’m so glad you did this card because you’ve shown me what a fun set it could be! Don’t you just hate it when one things stands out as wrong to you after you’ve finished the whole card (like a black sentiment). I really don’t think your sentiment is an issue – it stands out from the images.
