The Greetery – Lovely Layered Birthday Cards

Hello Artsy Friends! How are you doing? I hope you are safe and well. Today I wanted to share these gorgeous birthday cards I created for two very special people; my sister, Melissa, and my dear friend, Kim. I used one of my very favorite companies, The Greetery, and this is good timing because there’s a new release,Confetti Collection, coming on Friday. Have you seen the sneak peaks? Oh my goodness! Such beautiful new stamps and dies!

I used several stamps and dies to create these multi-layer, dimensional cards, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I began by stamping all of the floral, greenery, envelope, and ‘Happy’ sentiments layers with Catherine Pooler inks, and then die cut everything.

Next, I stamped and heat embossed the envelope in gold, and then used the coordinating die to cut it out.

Then I softly blended CP ink onto a white cardstock panel, and lightly stamped sentiments in the same ink color for a romantic, vintage background look. (TIP: Only blend ink towards the middle of the cardstock, and leave white around the outside. This creates interest and drama.) I stamped the ‘BIRTHDAY TO YOU’ sentiment in embossing ink and heat embossed in gold embossing powder in the lower right-hand corner, and then die cut with the Postal Frames die. 

Finally, I used foam tape to add dimension while layering everything onto a white A2 card base. I added iridescent jewels from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards for a finishing touch of sparkle. This is one of my favorite things about using The Greetery’s products; everything coordinates and layers to create such a special card for someone. Your loved one knows that you took the time to create a work of art just for her! 

So what do you think? Have you seen all of the beautiful products from The Greetery? Get your shopping list ready, because Friday will be a fun release day! Let me know what your favorite Greetery product is! Love and artsy hugs!
