New At SU January Blog Hop Sale-a-bration Day At The Farm

Welcome to the New At SU January Blog Hop as we explore the wonderful products in the new 2023 Sale-a-bration Catalog. This month we have been challenged to create a card design using at least one of the new Sale-a-bration products, as well as a coordinating envelope. Our talented Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative for the New Year. 
When I saw the Day At The Farm Designer Series Paper in the 2023 Sale-a-bration Catalog, I just knew I had to create a card with this particular paper design and the Silly Goose stamp set. The bright, cheerful color combination of Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue is perfect for a birthday card and I just love the images and sentiments in this stamp set. I decided to heat emboss the images with Black embossing powder to help them stand out a bit more against the background and make the white goose pop. The envelope was simple to decorate with a piece of the designer series paper on the back flap, adding a splash of color. This cute card design would be perfect for any age and is sure to bring a smile to whoever receives it.

This sweet birthday card is simple to create and showcases the wonderful Day At The Farm Designer Series Paper beautifully. For the main image, I heat embossed the goose with Black embossing powder and colored him in with Stampin' Blends Markers. I added a touch of Smoky Slate around the wings and tail and then blended it with the Color Lifter to give a hint of shading to the image. I fussy cut the image out with Paper Snips. For the background oval, I colored the background with the Light Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends Marker and then blended it with the Color Lifter to soften it and smooth out the lines. I attached the goose to the oval with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to the oval. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Black embossing powder and die cut it with one of the Stitched Rectangles Dies. To assemble the card, I attached the Daffodil Delight oval frame to the card front and then added the Basic White oval to the center. I attached the sentiment to the card front, lining it up below the oval. To embellish the card, I added several of the Pale Papaya Opal Rounds for a touch of bling. For the envelope flap, I added some adhesive and then attached a piece of the coordinating designer series paper. I trimmed around the edge of the flap with Paper Snips to finish it off.
