Good Morning! Today it is time for the December Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop and the theme is “Celebrate!”. I made a birthday card with the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Band Together stamp bundle along with the Christmastime Is Here specialty designer series paper. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is my card:
I cut a panel of the pretty Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper with the small roses and mounted it on a Mossy Meadow mat with snail. I mounted it on a Cherry Cobbler card base with dimensionals.
I cut the large swirly filigree frame from the Detailed Band dies in the Stampin’ Up! Band Together bundle from Gold Foil and trimmed the bands. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Band Together stamp set in Versamark ink on Whisper White card stock. I sprinkled it with gold embossing powder and heat set. I cut it out with the oval die from the Detailed Band dies and adhered it to the top of the gold frame with multipurpose liquid glue. I adhered the frame to the card base with dimensionals.
I decorated the inside by stamping the floral image from the Band together stamp set on a Whisper White panel using Cherry Cobbler ink after stamping off 5 times. I stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink and added a strip of the Christmastime Is Here DSP to the bottom. I adhered the panel to a Mossy Meadow mat and then to the inside of the card with snail.
The filigree frames in the Stampin’ Up! Band Together bundle are so beautiful and elegant and really look nice with the equally elegant Christmastime Is Here specialty designer series paper. The paper is very versatile and should be considered for any celebration for a special person!
