Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Perennial Birthday

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was this pretty Birthday card, made using the Perennial Birthday Stamp Set.

Perennial Birthday. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I used a combination of Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot and Old Olive for this project, along with Very Vanilla.

We used the fabulous ‘Pearlized Doilies’ as a background. These are white on one side with a silver pearlised finish on the other.

The white side was coloured using a Sponge Brayer.

Painted Harvest Stamp Set is used for the leaves and then cut out using the co-ordinating Leaf Punch.

Two separate pieces of cardstock were also coloured using the Sponge Brayer. One of these with a more ombre effect to create different depths of colour.

On the ombre piece, the flowers were stamped and then punched out using a Circle Punch. The other brayered piece was used behind the sentiment.

With some corner rounding using the Detailed Trio Punch, everything was then stuck together. The sentiment, one leaf and the three flowers were stuck together as one piece and then attached using Dimensionals to create more depth.

There’s also a delicate touch of Wink of Stella in the centre of the flowers too.

There are only 5 weeks of Card & Cuppa sessions left this year. Why not join us? Book your place here.

Happy crafting
