Stampin' Up! Itty Bitty Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. I can't wait to see what the other team members created. Hop along with us at the bottom of my post.

Here's our sketch...

Image may contain: text

and here's my interpretation...

My card base is Basic Black. That I adhered a mat of Coastal Cabana. Then I embossed a piece of Bermuda Bay with the retiring Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. I am soooooo sad that it's retiring. If you really like it, you need to order it NOW!

I adhered a strip of Basic Black card stock to the top of that piece and used an Ornate Borders Die to cut out a strip of Coastal Cabana and adhered it to the black strip.

Then I used my Layering Oval Dies to cut out the sentiment and scalloped mat. I made sure the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays fit on the smallest oval before I cut it. It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I kept the inside clean and simple by stamping another sentiment from Itty Bitty in black ink.

I punched the four corners with the Detailed Trio Punch and adhered it with liquid glue.
