I had gotten the Fireworks stamp set but didn’t get a chance to use it yet and when I saw this sketch and colors it all came together!
To make this festive birthday card I used:
- MFT Fireworks stamp set
- MFT You Wow Me stamp set
- MFT Inside & out stitched rectangle dies
- MFT stitched basic edge dies
- MFT Fiesta die
- TH oxide ink salty ocean, peacock feathers, & picked raspberries
- Versamark & Ranger silver embossing powder
- Versafine black ink
To start my card I trimmed thick 110lb black and white cardstock and die cut with the rectangle stitched die. I then stamped the first layer of fireworks with the TH oxide inks. Next, I stamped over with versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The smaller fireworks I used some really old pink glitter embossing powder. I took the top white fireworks paper and die cut the bottom with the basic edge die.
I then stamped the sentiment on thick white cardstock, heat embossed in black, and then inked with picked raspberries TH oxide ink. The fiesta I die cut 4 times and inked the top one with salty ocean and peacock feathers TH oxide inks and glue the layers together. I pop dotted the whole piece with fireworks and black cardstock and glued the sentiment and fiesta strip near the bottom.
Inside, I die cut a stitched rectangle, and stamp the sentiment and fireworks.
This was my first time making a card like this, the sentiment as my main focus with a background pattern that I created. Love the result and how it showcases the colors as the focal point. Will be making more of these! Hope this inspires you to try one too!
