Happy Birthday Foliage
Hello again!! It’s time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. This week the challenge is
We are showcasing Hero Arts Products this week. If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.
As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
You can never have too many Birthday cards so that’s the route I went this week. I started out with a piece of lavender card stock that I pulled from the Twilight Purple 6×6 Paper Pack by Memory Box and I LOVE these paper packs. I have the Sunny Orange collection as well and it’s so perfect for keeping colors in the same color family together and cohesive. I die cut it using a Nesting Rounded Rectangles Infinity Dies by Hero Arts. I ran my lavender card stock through my Leaf Bundle Embossing Folder.
I picked a couple more different color purples from my Twilight Purple 6×6 Paper Pack and began die cutting my foliage. I used the Simple Stem Die, Eucalyptus Leaves Die and the Privet Branch Die. For the Simple Stem die I cut it out of Silver Glitter Card Stock just to break up the purples a bit and add a little interest.
My sentiment is from the Let’s Celebrate Stamp Set by Hero Arts and I chose to heat emboss it on Black Card Stock with White Embossing Powder. I used some Black 3D Foam Squares and Black Foam Strips to pop up my sentiment a bit.
I attached my design to a side folding white card base but first I popped up the lavender panel with some Craft Foam. To finish off my card, I adhered a few Iridescent Color Drops in various sizes. And that was it. Easy peazy! I love cards that are quick and easy to make yet still look like you put in the effort to make a lovely card for your recipient.
So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
