Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Penciled Birthday Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!  Please be sure to visit everyone’s blog  to see the great projects they are sharing with you this week.  My project today features the Go To Greetings Stamp Set and the Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper.  We are working with a Color Challenge this week.  Here is my card:

And this is the Color Challenge this week:

As you can probably tell, the color I chose to add is Real Red.  The white sketches on the black background in the wildflower print pattern of this sheet of Perfectly Penciled Designer Series Paper caught my attention right away.  It’s delicate and bold at the same time.  Love it!

Adhere a panel of the Designer Series Paper to a Basic Black card stock mat with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Wrap a length of Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon around the layer and adhere the ends on the back with tape.  Adhere the layer to the front of a Real Red card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Use Tuxedo Black Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Go To Greetings stamp set on a panel of Basic White card stock.  Crop the sentiment with a die from the Stitched Rectangles Dies.  Use Liquid Glue to adhere the sentiment to a panel of Real Red card stock.  The sentiment layer is adhered to the card front over the top of the ribbon with Dimensionals.  Add some sparkle with a few Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels and use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere a bow tied with Black & White 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon on the left side.

Stamp a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on a panel of Basic White card stock for the inside.  Adhere the stamped panel to a panel of Basic Black card stock and then adhere the layer to the inside of the card base using Liquid Glue for both.  All done and ready to send!
