Hi there! It's Tracy here today, and I'm so excited to have my first post here on the GCD Studios blog. What an honor! This time of year is a really busy one for me birthday-wise, and the Sweet Tooth collection is absolutely perfect for making birthday cards. [Which is great, because I really do need quite a few!]
I fell in love with the white and kraft patterns that are part of this collection but I wanted to make them pop somehow. So I stamped my sentiment in pink ink and then cut out one of the flowers from the collection to sit next to the sentiment panel. To polish my card off, I added some pearls and a little paper piercing.
Supplies Used: Cardstock- PTI kraft, white; Decorative Paper: GCD Studios Sweet Tooth #1563, #1557, #1562; Stamps: Clear & Simple Stamps Birthday (limited edition); Ink: Palette Belle Rose; Accessories- paper piercer, Copic Multiliner Gray .1, corner rounder punch, Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Frame 3, white pearls
For my second card, I wanted the bright colors in the Sweet Tooth collection to really pop. So I matted them against a white card base, and made giant flags out of them.
It's hard to tell in the photo, but I curled the bottoms of each of the giant flags upward using my finger for more dimension. And each layer was mounted using dimensionals.
