I'm happy to be back sharing a card for another week of my Surprise Party Guest role at Seize the Birthday. I love the theme this week as it meant I had to use something I neglect to use far too often!
Every week at Seize the Birthday is Anything Goes as long as it's a birthday theme.
And some weeks there are also optional Toppings
And this week's Topping option is...
Two Patterned Papers
I had fun using two co-ordinating papers from the same paper pad here...
I adhered a strip of the floral paper directly to the card base. I then adhered the polka dot paper over this which had been die cut with a stitched edge die. This was then stamped with a bold happy birthday sentiment which was heat embossed in white. I wasn't sure about the placement of the sentiment at first but I now quite like the quirky angles! :)
- Patterned Paper: Pebbles - Sunny Side
- Die: MFT Die-namics - Stitched Basic Edges
- Stamps: Uniko - All Occasion Sentiments #2
- Ink: VersaMark
- Embossing Powder: Wow! - Opaque Bright White
I hope you get a chance to play along with this one, it's a great way to use some of those lovely papers that seem to get left in a cupboard or drawer and forgotten about!
Oh, and I hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend. This is a scheduled post so right now I'll be leaping out of the office looking forward to four days off work...bliss!
