Hello, friends! It's ANYTHING GOES week over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! Woot! (Yes, that means it's a you-have-zero-excuse-to-not-enter-week, just in case you were a little foggy on that point. HA!) The design team is playing with Simon Says Stamp exclusives this week, so that pretty much means we have some AWESOME projects to share with you! Woot! Woot!
I wanted to create a fun birthday card for the Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World and decided to latch onto the gold trend and do a GOLDEN birthday card! I am just loving gold and white together! It is SO pretty!
I die cut and embossed the Happy die with gold embossing powder. I actually made the die a couple of cardstock layers thick to give it some extra girth. (Thank you, Jennifer McGuire for THAT tip! Woot!) That cool border is actually a longer banner from the Beautiful Words stamp set. I love the pattern on it SO MUCH! I stamped it in gorgeous Delicata ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko. It makes me happy. For reals, dude. I love that ink!!! The 'birthday' is from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Shenanigans set and is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. I knew the Versafine could handle the gold pigment ink beneath it, so it was a good choice.
Honestly, you guys, this is one of my favorite cards as of late! I really love how it turned out! I just think it is SOOOOO pretty! Of course, when I'm rockin' Simon Says Stamp exclusives and CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, I really shouldn't expect less! HA!
So now it's YOUR turn! We'd' love to see you rock some Simon Says Stamp exclusives, but it isn't required. It is, afterall, ANYTHING GOES week! Create something awesome and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog and one lucky participant will win a $50 Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Yeah, dude. For reals. So.... what are you waiting for?! LOL! No back linking is allowed, so be sure to put it up AFTER the challenge has gone live. You can enter up to five times! Woot!
You can find the products I've used in my card in the links below! Go make something awesome!!!!!
Have a Happy!
