Please feel free to interpret it your way but do ensure you mention the 3 items you have chosen and how the interpretation has been used unless its very obvious!
So what you waiting for, jump right into the celebrations with us
For this post, I have taken the inspiration from the mood-board in the form of the lovely hot pink and gold color. I have also interpreted the number 3 by using three different colored leaves (colors inspired from the yummy macaroons) as the main focal point of the card I have created.
So here’s a quick tutorial on how this card was created:
I started out with an 8.5”x 5.5” card stock which was scored at 2 1/8”, 6 3/8”. I used some hot pink card stock to create the background. Once I had my background ready, I just sponged some Versamark ink with some stencils and used some gold perfect pearls to get the soft look. For the main focal point, I fussy cut some leaves which I stamped using distress inks. Since the 3 was the lucky number, I used 3 leaves to pin on the card, with a brad, and spread the leaves around. The main sentiment ‘Happy’ was die cut multiple times and adhered together to give some dimension. Lastly, I stamped birthday on a piece of cardstock, trimmed it and foam adhered it to the card!
So, I hope you all enjoyed the easy breezy card which you can create in a jiffy!
Stay tuned for more inspiration!
