Detailed Birthday Card

It was a friend's birthday this week and she is also another demonstrator in our fabulous team.  Trying to come up with a card for another demonstrator is tricky business - they've usually seen and tried most things and it's a challenge to come up with something new.

I knew I didn't want anything too simple and when I saw this, I knew I had to give it a go.  The colours are just what I would have chosen myself to put together so I didn't change a thing.

Colours: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette & Old Olive

I was so pleased with how it turned out, that I decided to make another one to keep in my samples box.  I had a play around with different colours this time:

Colours: Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Wild Wasabi

Colours: Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach and Pear Pizzazz

Which one do you like best?  Please leave me a comment and let me know.

Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Whisper White (Card 1: Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette & Old Olive) (Card 2: Pumpkin Pie, So Saffon and Wild Wasabi) (Card 3: Sweet Sugarplum, Peekaboo Peach & Pear Pizzazz)
Other: Detailed Floral Thinlits die, Stampin' Dimensionals, Tombow, Fine Tip Glue Pen


  1. WOW these are simply amazing,but if I'm forced to pick I love the first one and coming in a very close second would have to be the orange one. I love the vibrancy of the colours. The sweet sugar plum colour just lacks the vibrancy of the other two.

    1. Thanks Bill Ali. All comments gratefully received and yes the first two are more vibrant :)

  2. WOW - these are stunning Kathryn :) I'm sure the birthday girl loved her card. I think my favourite one is the first one but they're all beautiful.
