I was asked to make a birthday card for a teenage girl that loves horses and also likes the color blue, so this is what I came up. Do you like it?
I also love horses, so when I saw the Let It Ride Stamp Set
in the Occasions Catalog, I had to have it, and I”m having fun with it. I think the Crackle Paint Background Stamp
is the perfect background with the horse. Having the Stampin’ Blends also make it easy to color the horses on cardstock. Stampin’ UP! has many options to coloring your projects i.e., Stampin’ Blends, Watercoloring, Stampin’ Write Markers or Watercolor Pencils. The choice is yours.
All three layers on the Balmy Blue card base were cut with the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies. I used Old Olive Classic Ink on the Crackle Paint Background Stamp and stamped it onto a piece of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. The Soft Sea Foam and Balmy Blue look awesome together, and the Old Olive layer really makes the color combo pop!
These horses were also colored with the Stampin’ Blends, and the sentiment from the Pretty Kitty Stamp Set was stamped with Balmy Blue Classic Ink.
- Balmy Blue Card Base – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″
- Soft Sea Foam Layer – 4″ x 5 1/4″ stamped with the Crackle Paint background stamp in Old Olive and cut out with a large rectangle stitched framelits Dies
- Old Olive Rectangle Stitched Framelit Layer – 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″
- Whisper White Rectangled Stitched Framlit Layer – 4 1/2″ x 3 1/8″ and 4″ x 5 1/2″ for the inside layer
