Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy 9th birthday, PPP!
Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.
For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.
Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for interest and sparkle. Lastly, I glued the card panel onto an A2-sized card base.
For the gift card holder, I cut the Gift Card Bag Dies twice in white cardstock and inked through the Layered Party Hats Stencils in Distress Oxide Inks. To make the bag, I folded the tabs on one of the pieces and cut the tabs of the other piece. I then added glue on the scores tabs and adhered the two pieces together. Lastly, I cut “for you” in silver glitter cardstock and glued it to a scallop circle in vellum. I then added the glue on the vellum (behind the script) and adhered it to the gift card bag.
