February Color Play

Good morning, friends, and welcome to this month's Papertrey Ink Color Play feature! This month we're playing with a color combo inspired by Natty By Design. The colors in her sewn circle garlands are so playful and fresh. I thought this lively combination would be simply perfect for a birthday card.


I began by die cutting the Text Block: Birthday shape from Hawaiian Shores stock. I adhered that to a piece of label paper (sticky side up) and sprinkled glitter onto the exposed adhesive. I placed my text block on a white card base and lightly traced around it with a pencil. I used that outline as a guide for stamping my leaves and placing my Royal Velvet banner. Once those things were done I erased my lines and adhered down my Text Block.

Next, I stamped the flowers from Friendly Flowers onto a scrap of white cardstock. I trimmed out the larger flower and die cut the smaller flower to make layering easy. I mounted the larger flower to the card base with foam adhesive and added the smaller flower shortly thereafter.

I used a regular hole punch to punch out a small circle of Royal Velvet and adhered it to the flower's center. I covered that with Glossy Accents as a final touch. I'm really happy with how the colors translated and I'm glad I was able to maintain a fair amount of white space.

Thank you so much for joining me today! Have a wonderful day and I'll see you again soon!
