You Are Amazing Slimline Birthday Card

by Joanne James19. April 2023 19:00

I've a late post today but as promised I'm sharing a card that uses the same layout as yesterday's, this time using a trio of colours from the current Sunday Stamps palette:


I chose the two pinks and Starry Sky as my co-ordinating dark blue for a bright slimline birthday card - take a look:


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

The card has a few more layers than yesterday and is all about the colour! I used the fabulous large floral die as my focal point then overlaid with the other diecut sentiment in the Amazing Thanks set, having combined this with a stamped sentiment from the Art Gallery set for a colourful birthday card:

This card is still easy to pull together and impactful with the hot pink! I thought this card might work with the addition of a sparkly diecut number as I have lots of friends and family celebrating milestone birthdays in the next few months. I need a card for an 18th birthday, so consulted with the James Juniors for their thoughts and was told in no uncertain terms that this was a card more suitable to older (much older!!) ladies! Oh well - clearly I might be the mother of two teenagers, but what do I know?! Back to the drawing board on that one!

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

Enjoy your evening and I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Until then, happy stampin'!

I think it looks amazing, but then again I am old enough to have teenaged kids :p  I think Starry Sky might be my favorite In Color ever, it looks fabulous with absolutely everything.  Love your card, Joanne!

Joanne, I saw your beautiful card on IG last week and finally made it over here to tell you how very much I absolutely LOVE it! It may have more layers than your first one, yet it remains quite clean, and also very sophisticated looking! I'm so glad you were able to join us at Sunday Stamps for this color challenge!
