CAS Flourishing Phrases Birthday Card


I'm re-stocking my card stash, so I thought I'd try a clean and simple birthday card with the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.

Tips:
  • I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to color the flowers. With your ink pad closed, squeeze the lid to get some ink on the inside of the cover.  Use this ink as your "palette" and dip your glitter brush directly into the ink.  Once you're done, do a couple of strokes on some scratch paper and the color will come right out of the glitter brush and you'll be good to go for the next time.  It basically works like a blender pen, but I found it easier to color on our Whisper White card stock using the glitter brush vs. the blender pen.  The paper didn't seem to "peel" as much with the glitter brush as it can when you get a little carried away with the blender pen.  With the glitter brush you get the added bonus of sparkle (which unfortunately doesn't show up in the picture).
  • The greeting is popped up with dimensionals.
