I was flicking through the Stampin’ Up! catalogue today and once again I surprised myself by things that I’ve missed. I don’t know how – I must go through that catalogue a dozen times a day but nearly a year later I’m still finding inspiration. Today I thought it might be fun to copy a card from the catalogue and this is the card I made. It’s a copy of the one on page 38 of the Australian Stampin’ Up! Idea Book & Catalogue.
There’s a couple of very slight colour changes as I used what I had but other than that the card is the same.
The base of the card is embossed using the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I’m always impressed with this embossing folder as it’s one that I use often for men’s cards as it goes well with masculine colours and images but then it still seems to work really well with this bright and fun birthday card.
The ‘Happy Birthday’ greeting was stamped in Black Stazon ink and then coloured in using my inkpads and a blender pen.
I really enjoyed making this card so I’ll definitely be copying some more from the catalogue when I’m a little stuck for ideas or looking for something different. If you’d like one of these 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogues then let me know and I’ll send you one (Australia only). This catalogue will only be current until 31st of August and then the new 2012-2013 Stampin’ Up! catalogue will be released on 1st September.
