Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop for November and this month our theme is birthdays, in honor of our blog hop organizer, Melissa, who is celebrating her birthday. We have demonstrators from all over the world sharing their wonderful projects with you today to help inspire you to create your own creations. You may have just visited Janey's blog or perhaps you are starting your journey here with me. I hope that you will enjoy this blog hop.
For my birthday card design, I decided to use one of the papers from the beautiful Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper (item #147800) in the 2018 Holiday Catlog and combine it with the Label Me Pretty stamp set from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. I love the soft, pretty pattern of this paper and coordinated beautifully with the Happy Birthday image in the stamp set.
To create the card I used Mint Macaron cardstock for the card base and added a layer of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to matte the designer series paper layer. I stamped the image onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Silver embossing powder to make the design pop. I punched out the design using the Pretty Label punch (item #143715) and punched out a matte from Mint Macaron cardstock.
The Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon has been colored using the Dark Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blend Marker to coordinate and I also used the marker to color three of the larger Basic Pearls to embellish the bottom of the card. This birthday card has an almost Spring-like feel to it, which is pretty amazing when you consider that the designer series paper works perfectly for winter projects.
