Stampin' Up! No Bones About It Birthday Card #GDP090

Hey Peaches! I have a fun birthday card for you today. The Global Design Project design team has posted another fun sketch challenge this week. Click here to see the challenge, along with all the other amazing creations submitted for this week's challenge.


This card design is actually a little out of my comfort zone. If you've been following me, you could probably tell by now that my cards are often complex looking, with tons of layers and texture. I don't ever go into creating them with the idea that I'm intentionally going to make them this way. I just can't stop myself, and truth be told, they are really a lot less complicated than they appear. What seems to happen is that at the point when I should just leave well enough alone, I always feel like I should add more.

For this card, however, I was actually forcing myself to keep it simple. And you know what?! I really enjoyed the simplicity of this one. Now, don't get me wrong; I won't be giving up my true style any day soon. I am who I am after all, but I believe it is a great way to stretch your creative juices when you can step out of your comfort zone occasionally and try something different.

One of the things I love about this simple card is that even though there are quite a few less layers and embellishment than my typical cards, the simple background stamping creates the illusion of dimension and texture. I also added (I just can't go without it, lol) a little sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen onto all of the "Peekaboo Peach" elements. I just love how the new Lemon Lime Twist coordinates with Bermuda Bay and Peekaboo Peach. First, I stamped the stegosaurus in Lemon Lime Twist and then used the "bone" layer to stamp in Bermuda Bay. I added a fun party hat in Peekaboo Peach since, of course, this is a birthday card. The sentiment is from Confetti Celebration. And that's my card! Thanks so much for stopping by!
