Happy birthday Grace

Posted by

It’s one of the princess’ friends birthday today so I made her a card.

I wanted to play with my small square gelli plate and so layered a few prints up in zingy bright colours of fresco finish paints.

This provided the backdrop for the focal point … a tag I painted in mermaid paint and a flamingo stamped and embossed onto the wipe off card I had been wiping the brayer off on.

I decided to stamp the happy repeatedly on the card blank in two colours of ink (coastal cabana and pool party SU inks) and this creates a fun background for the topper.

Then I heat embossed the script Happy and added a little ribbon tag for the rest of the sentiment.

And finally… black enamel accents… Will I ever get bored of using these? … and some wink of Stella on the flamingo… after all sparkle is always fun!

I also did a little stamping to the envelope using the Lawn Fawn pineapple stamp set. Thought this added a cute little touch to the envelope.

Happy crafting!
