Seize the Birthday #185 - Touch of Green

Hello and Happy Thursday, everyone! 

It's already time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! Our team member Vicki chose the Toppings option for the next fortnight. She wants us to add touch of green to our project! 

I've made a quite simple card using Vintage Type stamp set by The Ton.


I stamped the layering type writer in Soft Garden, Bright Fern, Light Onyx and Smoky Quartz. Next I stamped the sentiments in Noir. The sentiments are also from Vintage Type stamp set. I masked the letter "u" when I inked up the third sentiment.


I chose an embossing folder in a retro look (by Spellbinders) for the background. I embossed a white cardstock panel and adhered it on a green cardbase. I then foam mounted the type writer.


I had stamped the letters using the Layered Floral Alpha stamp bundle and all cut using the coordinating die and have them in my stash. I picked a letter which was gold heat embossed and embellished with yellow flowers (stamped in Lemon Drop, Amber CitrineSoft Garden and Bright Fern) to add to the card. The floral "U" was mounted using some foam tape.
I finished off the card by scattering some green sequins from Frosted Spearmint Couture Mix.


That's it from me! Please stop by Seize the Birthday blog for more inspiration from my lovely teamies and our new surprise party guest Stef Perry!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!
Have a crafty day!
Hugs,
TaeEun

A great design TaeEun with the message on the typewriter and the large 'U' works well to complete the sentiment, and I love the geometric embossed look of the background too. When I see an old fashioned typewriter it always makes me think of my younger days when I worked in an office before computers were common, in fact probably even before they were invented...oh dear it makes me feel very old..lol. x

This is such a fun and fresh card! Brilliant idea to mask out the "u" and replace it with the big one - I'm hoping I will remember to do that when an opportunity arises. ;)

Oh, TaeEun, you've made such a fabulous card with that old fashioned typewriter and the typed out message! I have to say I learned to type an even older model LOL! The capital U embellished with flowers is such a beautiful element. Swooning over your exquisite design!

Oh, I am loving that green typewriter! Way to up the retro design! Love everything in this card (read, praising every little thing takes too much time and space, so I am writing it off!)

This card is so out of your wheelhouse so to speak and then I had to chuckle when I saw the small flower. My thoughts then was... okay much better. Now it's a Tae Eun card!! LOL. it's fabulous as always!!!
