Penny Black: Whimsy Birthday Greeting Card
With the weather being so gorgeous out, I decided to make a fun and whimsy card with some bright colors. What could be more whimsy than a cute stamp from Penny Black? These colors also work wonderfully for the challenge over at The Corrosive Challenge Blog to use summer colors...what say summer more than blue?
I used some fun pattern paper from My Mind's Eye.
Stampin Up! cardstock in Pacific Point, Green Galore, and Passion Pink
My sewing machine in a fun an whimsy patter rather than straight rows.
And a trio of buttons from my stash.
I didn't have Nesties large enough for my image, so I used my trusty EK Success Circle Scisors for the image and pink layers.
For the scallop, I used my small circle scallop punch from Stampin Up! and cut it into pieces and then attached them around the edge. I used the same technique as the large flower punch border tutorial, except I cut the small scallop circle into two bumps for each cut...I'll take photos and do a tutorial specifically for this some time in the future.
Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
