Happy birthday for Paper Pals and Clean and Simple


Today’s card fulfils two challenge briefs – a colour challenge from Clean ans Simple Colours & Sketches and a sketch for Paper Pals.  Here are the challenge banners:

And here’s the card that I made:

I used half a sheet of A4 in Wild Wasabi as my card base (scored and folded on the short length), then added a mat of Strawberry Slush, followed by a mat of Whisper White. I used DSP in Daffodil Yellow from the All Abloom DSP stack and added a strip of Wild Wasabi down the centre.  I then Stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Butterfly Basics stampset in Strawberry Slush on Whisper White card and used a Chalk Talk framelit die and the Big Shot to cut out the label shape.  I edged the label in Strawberry Slush as well.  I put the card together without glue and decided something was missing.  So I dry embossed the green strip using the Heart Embossing folder and punched out a single heart in Strawberry Slush and then my card felt finished!  I constructed the card using tomwbow glue and popped up the deliberately off-centre sentiment and the single heart using dimensionals.  Hope you like it!
