Exotic Birthday Card

Stitched Exotics Birthday CardI love having coordinating stamp sets. Here is a card that I made for my SIL's birthday using the Stitched background stamp and the Stitched Exotics stamp set.

I created a faux multi-color striped ribbon by layering a strip of 5/8" Old Olive ribbon, Whisper White card stock, and Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon.

I also used the Rock 'n Roll technique on the large flower image, but it's very subtle here. This technique involves inking a solid image stamp in a lighter color, then rolling the outside edges in a darker color ink. If you've never tried this - give it a whirl and I think you'll like the dimension it adds.

Stamps - Stitched Exotics, Stitched background, It's Your Birthday; Paper - Ruby Red, Groovy Guava, Old Olive, Whisper White; Ink - Groovy Guava, Old Olive, Ruby Red; Accessories - Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Groovy Guava double-stitched ribbon, 1-3/8" square punch, 1-1/4" square punch, 1/2" circle punch, Paper Snips, Glue Dots, Sticky Strip

God Bless,
