American Beauties with a Raised Sentiment


Today I have another really fun and fabulous card to show you. This card follows suit with our Just For Fun monthly Challenge which is to use two or more stamps on your card, however unlike my previous ones, this one uses the stamps as the focal point. 


This card is fairly simple and using a technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire related to 3-D stacking. To start off this card I stamped the American Beauties stamp from Just For Fun onto some white cardstock. I then colored in my image using alcohol markers. Once my image was colored I went ahead and stamped Happy Birthday on top of the already colored image. 

Now to take this card a step further I went around the bulbs of the American Beauties stamp and fussy sliced (using my exacto) just the bulbs up. This created a raised image center and of course that partial raised sentiment. 


To finish off the card I trimmed the white cardstock down and layered it onto a canary colored piece. I then took some matching dots and accessorized. 

Thanks so much for checking out my newest project. If you were inspired to play in our monthly challenge make sure to head on over to Just For Fun and join us.
