I started with a white card base and added a layer of pink and white. The next layer is one that I made a while back when I was playing with my Ken Oliver Color Bursts. I made them using different colors so now I have one ready for this card. I like to make extras when I have the supplies out. They really come in handy to help you make a quick card for an occasion you may have forgotten about. The color bursts also are good to have for a card or project when you do not have the color of paper you need. You just make your own. For this background, I used the Memory Box Texture Drip Rings stencil along with Ken Oliver Color Bursts in Alazarin Crimson, Orange and just a little dab of the Ultramarine Blue, which made the hint of green on my card.
I used the PoppyStamps Teacup Stack die that just arrived from the Classy Cards store. I put some pink and yellow card stock behind the cups. I popped the cups up on the background with Joy Foam Pads Large.
The sentiment was stamped using the Sweet n' Sassy stamps called Keep In Touch. I like this set because it has almost every sentiment one needs in card making.
For the finishing touch, I added sequins and attached them with Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive. I think the sequins just help to give the card a more festive look.
Thanks so much for coming by today. Have a great weekend!
