This birthday card features the Have A Seat stamp set. I have had this set for some time now and I haven't used it yet, until now. I made this card for my friend, Lynne. When she first looked at the catalog when I became a demonstrator, she said she loved this set. So, I filed it away in my memory bank to use for her birthday. I hope she likes it!
My inspiration for this card came from the IB&C, page 139. I love the way the corner is flipped up to reveal the A to Z stamp on the underneath. The flower with the brad adds the perfect touch of whimsy! The stamp sets used were Have A Seat, A to Z and Teeny Tiny Wishes. The colors used were Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke. The trim was punched with the Scallop Edge Border in Basic Black. I used the Color Spritzer for the first time and I have to say it may just be my new best friend!! I also used a touch of the 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon in Basic Black, a button, some Linen Thread, a vintage safety pin and a Basic Rhinestone on the tag punched with the Jewelry Tag Medium Punch. I sponged everything in Basic Black. The Cajun Craze flower was punched out with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack and I used a Clear Rhinestone Brad in the center to attach it to the Crumb Cake. I stamped another chair on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and spritzed & sponged it before I added a scalloped border in Basic Black. The sentiment was stamped twice. I used the Stampin' Write marker in Basic Black and colored each word on the stamp separately and then punched them out with the Jewelry Tag Medium punch. It's a neat way to use a stamp a different way. The words fit perfectly into the punch once I stamped them separately. I hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by and come back soon for more projects!
