A very special little lady reminded this past week that her birthday is coming soon, so I wanted to come up with a fun, unique card for her.
I was inspired by a cute idea I saw done using circle framelits in fun colors with a die cut greeting by Mayuri at Candles in the Garden. Once I made my card and checked the link to credit, I realized I hadn’t even come close to doing Mayuri’s design justice! She used a beautiful inlaid technique on her card which I may have to try some time.
For my card, I cut multiple sizes of circles using the StampinUp Circle Framelits and layered them on top of each other on black paper. I then cut out two layers of the word “happy” from the StampinUp Hello You Thinlit Set. I covered “happy” with a glossy layer of Crystal Effects to give it a little more pop. I then stamped “@birthdaygirl” from the StampinUp So Social Stamp set and added a few sequins for embellishment.
For some reason this card reminds me of the song, “Come on Get Happy” with the psychedelic Partridge Family bus colors, and it makes me smile. (I know – sometimes I’m living in my own little happy place…) 🙂
I hope the birthday girl will enjoy her card.
Happy Friday friends!
Cheers & Hugs,
