Celebrating Your Birthday

Celebrating Your Birthday
Made this birthday card for my best friend who is also my daughter godmother. She is working in Singapore and her birthday is on next Monday. I hope with one week grace period, this card will reach to her on time with a little gift I prepared earlier.

Viva la Verve Sketches - October Week 2 Sketch
For this card, I decided to play Viva la Verve Sketches - October Week 2 Sketch as shown above. I also would like to challenge myself to CAS-ual Chic, The Utterly Adorable Layers Challenge - CCC04 Tic Tac Toe'ing in which I choose stenciling, die cutting and embossing as shown below.
CAS-ual Chic, The Utterly Adorable Layers Challenge - CCC04 Tic Tac Toe'ing

Close-up: Stencil pattern
First of all, I mask a piece of white card stock with the stencil using four (4) different distress inks in random order. Then, I die cut it into a circle. Since there is still some leftover after I die cut the desire circle size I want, I go ahead to die cut the remain of the pattern into various circle sizes that fits. I will use these in the future projects. The circle is then layer onto a silver based scallop circle which later attach onto a purple card base as shown in the sketch.

Close-up: Sentiment in the tag
The sentiment is stamped onto a yellow die cut tag in pink. I fish tailed the tag to fit the card base width. Then, the tag is embossed with polka dots. Some pink twine is tied to the hole of the tag. It is later attached onto the card base as shown in the sketch using dimension foam.

As the card base is dark n color, I added a white inlay so that message can be written.

Dimension : 10.1cm x 15.2cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : Yes

This card is entering the challenge(s) organized by:
1) Viva la Verve Sketches - October Week 2 Sketch (ends by 05 November 2015)
