Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop!
Today’s Blog Hop today is filled to the brim with projects that celebrate birthdays. The opening line from The Beatles’ “Birthday” song ran through our heads as we joyfully created the birthday-themed creations we share with you today. After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Picture Perfect for Fab Friday # 131
Third time is a charm for this blog hop. I started two other cards, but neither card was working so I have those pieces set aside for another day. After calling it quits for the second card, I then pulled out this fabulous Picture Perfect DSP and matched it with the Fab Friday # 131 sketch.
Here’s my card:
I absolutely love all of the papers in this 6 x 6 stack. Absolutely.Love. The coordinating stamp set, Picture Perfect Birthday, is pretty fabulous as well, and that’s where I got the sentiment. It felt like this card was falling into place when I realized this sentiment would work with the Everyday Label punch. This confetti paper is all about party time, and the banner is from the Picture Perfect stack as well. While I matted the banner in Basic Black, I chose to really make the sentiment pop with a mat of Bermuda Bay. A base of Berry Burst and bow in Bermuda Bay were the finishing touches. I’m getting better, sometimes, with bows so I don’t feel completely bow challenged lately. A naked envelope just didn’t seem to fit with this card, so I cropped another piece of Picture Perfect DSP for the flap.
Fab Friday # 131
This sketch is simple and clean, which works well with this DSP. I just pulled the banner to the left of center instead of the right, and I was finally able to get a birthday card finished.
Here’s the sketch:
