Double Take Thursday - Birthday
It's Double-Take Thursday. This week I challenged Kim to create a birthday card using the Cuttlebug. Kim's adorable card can be seen here. While you are visiting Kim's site, look at the Boho flower card below her double-take. I think you will agree that the Boho flower card is absolutely breath-taking.
This surprise pop up card was created with Bazzill pink, white and green. The birthday present image was stamped onto watercolour paper and watercoloured with Tombow markers. Lots of Stickles were added onto the ribbon and bow to give the card sparkle and shine.
This image comes from The Artful Stamper. I saw this image on their website, and asked Lasting Impressions to bring it in for me. Wowzers, I was surprised, and delighted, when I saw my stamps. They are huge. The birthday present that is pictured here is 3 1/4" x 2 1/2". The image with "happy birthday" and balloons is a whopping 3 1/4" x 3 1/2". Two smaller images are included in this set. As you know, it isn't easy to find large images like this. I'm heading back over to their website to see what other sets I would like to have. For those of you in my area, let Lasting Impressions know what set you would like, and they will order it in for you.
