A big congrats to Jen, the newest Featured Stamper (FS731)! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS card to case. I liked the 3 little tags w/ images on them, so I kept that. But I used different images, dies & colors, & turned the layout to vertical.
For my card, I came across this leftover bg piece that I had made ages ago. I love how bright & festive it is & thought it would be perfect w/ these 3 candles. The bg was done by inking the inside of the birthday embossing folder w/ a rainbow ink pad, then embossing it. I colored the candles to go w/ this bg, die cut them then added them to the 3 die cut tags. I wanted a little more separation between them & the bg so I die cut a wide-ish frame to go around the bg. It also helps to disguise the fact that this bg doesn’t run the entire length of the card front. There were a few areas that the color on the bg had run into the white letters but a little touch up w/ a white Posca pen helped disguise it.
Thanks so much for looking. It's on my blog w/ Copic colors & links: The Write Stuff
