Wish For It All Doily Wishes Brights Birthday Card

by Joanne James13. April 2020 11:58

Today I'm sharing something bright and colourful using this week's Colour Throwdown colours and the sketch over at Fusion:

    

Whilst I don't have any gnomes in my collection (I think I might have to remedy this sometime soon!) I did also take some inspiration from the spots in the Fusion photo for my background and created a colourful birthday card - take a look:

 

Here's the low-down on today's card:

Today's card is all about the brights! I used some retired Brights DSP in Melon Mambo (link to current version below - this would look nice in the gingham too) and then a white circle to showcase my trio of diecut candles from the Doily Wishes Dies - these candles are so pretty I think they make the card! I used the banner from the same set and heat embossed my sentiment from the co-ordinating Wish For It All stamp set for the horizontal element; I finished off with another sentiment from the same set inside my card: 

 

A trio of those gorgeous shimmery enamel dots in Melon Mambo finishes my card. The Doily Wishes Dies and the Wish For It All stamp set comprise one of the many bundles that can be found in the annual catalogue which when both items are bought together benefit from a 10% discount. With the launch of a new annual catalogue around the corner, it's worth bearing in mind that even if these stamps and dies carry over, the discount bundled price won't, so it's worth taking advantage of this whilst you still can.

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:

 

You can see all of my 'How To' summaries on my 'How To - Tips and Techniques' Pinterest board in case you've missed any. 

This is another of those great standby birthday cards - so much so that I think I'm going to use a little of this enforced stay-at-home time to make up a batch in a variety of different colours and use up more sheets of that spotty DSP too! 

What do you have planned on this fine Monday? It's gloriously sunny here in the UK, but a good 15 degrees cooler than the scorching Easter Sunday we experienced yesterday. Fine for a nice long walk this afternoon, perhaps with a little craft time first. Enjoy your day and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

These lacy candles look gorgeous with the dotty paper Joanne! I was rather glad the temperature dropped as the amount of people walking while I walk Eva also dropped! Vicky x

PS Gnomes are on my 'to get' list too Smile
