It’s always fun to explore new techniques in stamping and I was inspired by some layered color stamp effects to create this birthday card for my daughter for her 16th birthday.
She’s a good photographer and she took some beautiful photos of ferns so that was an inspirational memory for me in choosing a motif. I didn’t want to use a floral as that would be my usual choice for a focal point and I didn’t have an appropriate bird embellishment so I just chose some feathers that contained the word spring from my Bird Serenade Digital Journal Kit. It keeps the nature theme and is more a style to her liking. I added some jewels and a fern stamp to the inside which also has a cream mat for writing. I chose silver glitter pen to write the text in the card.
While it isn’t showing up that well in the photo the envelope enclosure is embossed. When I have an emboss that doesn’t emboss quite right I punch circles to use in various ways.
I hope this card inspires you to explore color layering with stamps. Follow me on Pinterest to view my crafted cards board where I have pinned tons of inspirational card designs.
