GC44: Birthday

We are closing in on our first year over at Gingersnap Creations so our Random Redhead Challenge today is to make a birthday greeting!

I learned this great ribbon border from a tutorial by GC Design Team Member Erika Taylor! I am getting hooked on the Out of the Box technique from Technique Junkies. Not sure this one counts completely but the technique was my inspiration for the card.

Here's what I put together:

Birthday Style
Stamp: woman from Twenties No. 1 plate (The Artistic Stamper)
Paper: Wedding Cakes (Karen Foster)
Cardstock: Cameo Coral, Riding Hood Red, and Very Vanilla (Stampin Up)
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Copics: E00, E19, R32, R35, and R37
Embellishments: satin-covered button; 1/2" Berry Sorbet grosgrain ribbon (Papertrey); feather
Other: oval cutter (Creative Memories)

I love these fabulous art deco style stamps from The Artistic Stamper! Jennie of The Artistic Stamper generously sponsored Gingersnap Creations for the month of February. I had the pleasure of interviewing Jennie earlier in the month and she is a delightful person and talented artist.

If you want to see some other stylish birthday greetings, head on over to Gingersnap Creations and check out the beautiful samples from both the GC Design Team and The Artistic Stamper's Design Team! We hope you play along!
