Seize the Birthday #168 - Cover the Card

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today a new challenge has started at Seize the Birthday! My lovely team mate Ashwini has chosen a Toppings option for you and her choice is 

Cover the Card

It could be a hard one for CAS card makers :) but it's a great chance to practice some background stamping ! So I hope you will give it a try! As always you may enter any birthday themed projects in our gallery, if you want to! 

I used Rose Wonderland Print stamp set by The Ton. It is a three step floral cluster image in a size of 3.75 x 4 inches. As it is smaller than the A2 size I stamped it two times and added some solo elements to fill the gaps. 

I stamped the image in Warm Hazelnut and Coraline hybrid ink to show orange-brown color combination. I skipped the third layer which fills the white part of the flowers. I stamped them on a separate white panel again. I narrowed down both panels using Double Stitched Rectangle die.

Next I adhered the panels on a dark brown cardbase. I adhered the upper part upside down. The sentiment was cut using Bold General Greeting word plate die from some dark brown cardstock from which I used the negative panel for my card. I made it in a wide strip. One piece of stamped panel was added underneath the sentiment strip which was foam mounted on the card. "happy birthday" is from Happy Florals set by The Ton. I stamped it in Aspen Cocoa directly on the stamped panel.

I added three cream colored flat back pearls and the card was finished! 

Thank you so much for looking my card today! Hope you'll join us!

Please hop over to Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my team mates and our surprise party guest Linda, before you go creating!

Happy Crafting!

The soft beige pink coloured leaves which I see is called Warm Hazelnut, and the coral red flowers tone in beautifully with your chocolate brown card and die cut sentiment strip TaeEun, and both the design and colour choice is a little bit different which is great. A super card. x

LOve the combo of red and brown... some of my favorite Christmas cards use that combo, TaeEun! This is just fantastic!

A great lesson on using stamps for your own background. Love the different use of color on your card. I love the negative panel for the sentiment.

Lindsey said...

Beautifully done! Turning the top panel upside down is subtle, but I think helps draw the eye to the sentiment even more. And yes, this was one of the tougher challenges for a CAS person! :D

Fabulous colour combo, TaeEun, and I love how you've done the sentiment.

What a wonderful colour combination. The red on the background just pops! Love how you did the sentiment too.
