A Perfectly Penned Birthday Card!

Another birthday card for you today showing off the gorgeous Stampin' Up! Soho Subway Designer Series Paper.

The swirls from the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set were stamped in Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and the edges of the card sponged. This piece was matted onto Crisp Cantaloupe card and an Early Espresso card base.  The label was a bit of a "happy accident" - I had stamped it in Crisp Cantaloupe ink but it didn't look right so I stamped it again using Crumb Cake ink - but forgot to clean my stamp first!! I quite like the effect.  The sentiment from Perfectly Penned Stamp Set was lined up using the Stamp-a-ma-jig - perfect placement every time! The label was cut out using the super sharp Paper Snips.  



A banner was cut from a piece of Soho Subway Designer Series Paper and edged with card punched using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, this was layered on top of a Tea Lace Paper Doilie which had been sponged with Crumb Cake and Crisp Cantaloupe inks.  The label was popped over a piece of Victoria Crochet Trim. A Very Vintage Designer Button knotted with Linen Thread and Pearl Basic Jewels finish the card.

I love the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set; swirls, flowers, labels and a cute bird - what more could you want?
