I used the Stampin’ Up! Sparkly Seasons stamp set to create a quick birthday card to share with you today. I’m not sure that I love the way that this card turned out…but I do think that the snow globe with the ballerina is really cute! I feel like I should have put a string from the top of the globe to the top of the card, but I couldn’t come up with a reason why the snow globe would have a string out the top, so I left it alone 😉
My card design was loosely inspired by Global Design Project #004.
I started by adhering a panel of Blushing Bride DSP from the Subltes DSP Stack to a panel of Whisper White card stock with SNAIL, then to a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the globe and ballerina image from the Sparkly Seasons photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, sprinkled them with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed the images. I colored the ballerina with Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Delightful Dijon Stampin’ Write Markers, then cut the image out with the matching Seasonal Frame Thinlits Die.
I stamped the snow image from the Sparkly Seasons stamp set over the ballerina image in VersaMark Ink, sprinkled it with Heat & Stick Powder, heated it, then sprinkled it with Dazzling Details Glitter and heated it again. I stamped the snow globe base in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock and snipped it out. I adhered the globe images to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the sentiment from the Talented Trio photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a strip of White Vellum, sprinkled it with Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. I punched one end with the banner punch and adhered the other end with a Glue Dot to the card front. I adhered an Iced Rhinestone Embellishment to a Blushing Bride button from the Subtles Designer Buttons pack with a Glue Dot, then adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot. I tied a small bow from Silver 1/8″ Ribbon and adhered it to the top of the globe with a rolled up Glue Dot.
I stamped the ballerina image from the Talented Trio stamp set in Pink Pirouette ink, then stamped the sentiment from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
