We're taking inspiration from a favourite stamp set this week. I have quite a few that I really like, but somehow they haven't seen the light of day yet, so I decided to pull the Amazing Year stamp set out. It has a great selection of birthday greetings to choose from and the lovely bouquet of flowers.
I decided on a square card for my version, which I made 12cm x 12cm (4 3/4" x 4 3/4"). It is a nice size and not too big to require extra postage. I added a layer of the pretty ombre Tahitian Tide Glimmer Paper onto the Thick Basic White card base. The glitter is super fine and very sparkly and I hope you can see a little of that in the photo. For the centre panel, I've used one of the prints from the 2022-24 Designer Series Paper Assortment with a mat of white, so it pops against the background. Instead of a banner, I have wrapped a double layer of the 1/4" White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the panel and finished with a bow on the edge. The centre panel was popped up on the card base with Dimensionals, as they stick really well to the glimmer paper.
The bouquet image was coloured with Stampin' Blends Markers using Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green. The image was fussy cut and popped up on the Basic White pierced circle cropped with the Stylish Shapes Dies. The greeting from the Amazing Year stamp set was stamped in black and I fussy cut it before using the Tahitian Tide Stampin' Blend marker to colour it. It gives it a less intense colour than using the card stock.
For the inside, I have a mat of Tahitian Tide for the writing panel and I stamped the greeting from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set in the centre. I coloured and fussy the bouquet again, cropping the stems so it looks more like they are in the garden.
