Inking Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! Today’s Blog Hop 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.

For today’s hop, I made a square card (4 1/4 inches).  I like the proportion of the stamped basket in the square format. I will mail this card in a standard envelope, to avoid additional postage charges.

I stamped the Blossoming Basket (Saleabration item 147505) on a layer of Very Vanilla (101650) card stock.  The “happy birthday “ sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday (145519) set.  The basket and flowers were colored with Stampin Blends in both shades of Pink Pirouette (144604), Old Olive (144597) and Crumb Cake (144601). The larger center flower was “fussy cut”, then popped up on Stampin dimensionals.

The colored image was then mounted on a layer of Pink Pirouette (111351) embellished with Linen Thread (104199), Then attached to a card base of So Saffron (105118). I added clear Wink of Stella (141897) to the flowers.
