MFT Sketch Challenge #392 & Color Challenge #96


MFT Sketch Challenge #392


MFT Color Challenge #96

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! MFT sketch 392 & color 96

To make this festive birthday card I used:

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!
