The Waterfront birthday card in today’s post is a great card when you need a generic themed card. It features the Waterfront Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Well Written Framelits Dies. Notice the card size. It uses the 4″ x 6″ Night of Navy Card Base from the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. The Memories & More cards & envelopes simplify card making and offers two sizes of cards with matching envelopes.
Since the card base is larger, a couple of cardstock layers fill the blank space. Tan and navy are a wonderful color combination. Therefore, Crumb Cake cardstock is sandwiched between the Night of Navy layers. Stamp the images from the Waterfront Stamp Set onto the Whisper White cardstock using a variety of classic stampin’ pad colors. Use a blender pen to soften any overlapping lines. The color selection for the card above includes Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Shaded Spruce, Early Espresso, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Crushed Curry. When stamping the center mountain with the Crumb Cake ink, stamp off the image onto a scrap paper once before stamping onto the card. Stamp the mountains on the left and right without stamping off.
After stamping the images onto the card, use the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to add texture. Unfortunately the texture is not evident in the photo but it has the appearance of a linen paper.
Birthday Wishes is cut from Night of Navy cardstock using Well Written Framelits Dies. TIP: attach a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the Night of Navy prior to cutting with the framelits. This makes it easy to add the sentiment to the card front.
The Waterfront Stamp Set is perfect for creating generic birthday cards and is my go to set for masculine themed cards. Order your supplies below under Project Materials.
