Special Delivery Birthday

Hey there, happy stampers! Today, I have another Special Delivery card. On this card, I wanted to make a scene and then trim it to place on the large image from Special Delivery Addition.

I started by cutting a piece of Pure Luxury White cardstock to slightly larger than 3 inches square, then sponged some Apricot Appeal in the center.

Added Pretty in Pink from the edges to meet the Apricot Appeal.

Sponged Regal Rose.

Sponged Real Red.

Sponged Bravo Burgundy.

Stamped the large stamp sheet (Special Delivery Addition) stamp on my brackground.

Stamped images from Tropical Flowers, using Bravo Burgundy ink.

Next, I cut between each of the individual stamp images and then trimmed away the outer edge from each piece (only two shown trimmed here so far).

Stamped the image again, this time of Pure Luxury White paper.

Stamped the 9 cents (from Special Delivery) on each individual piece, then adhered them to the background.

Layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Cranberry Tart, along with a piece of SEI glittered paper. I stamped the greeting and squiggle lines (from Special Delivery) and used my Scor-Bug to add the dotted lines on the white cardbase.

Thanks for visiting. Check back tomorrow for another Gina K Blog hop. Have a great day!
