The card base is a cream square card measuring approximately 10cm x 10cm. I chose one with an elegant edge because I felt it suited the stamp. The stamp is from the Elementary Elegance set (one of the Sale-a-bration sets) from Stampin' Up - I love this set so much and I know I will use it a lot.
I stamped it on to a strip of cream card using Night of Navy ink and them punched the centre out with the Curly Label punch. I was going to back it with a contrasting colour, but I really like the cream and navy combination. I edged the strip the navy card and adhered it to the card base. I had to trim the edge to get the fancy edge. The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the same set as the frame. Then I added some grosgrain ribbon, made a little bow and then finished it off with a gem.
This is one of my all time favourite cards and I think I will have to replicate it soon, and maybe try a different colourway.
I am really loving my Stampin' Up products, I love the way everything matches which makes life so much easier and the stamps are so beautiful.
Thanks for stopping by. Take care.
