Today's card is both two-toned, shadowed and a bit 3D! I'm excited to share with you another way to use the Happy Birthday Thinlits by creating two layers of color and shadowing.
I've paired this card with the Balloon Celebrations and Marquee Messages stamp sets. Mixing and matching your stamps is a great way to stretch your investment and creates unique greetings and backgrounds.
Today's card uses only two colors, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz. The color combinations are endless with this design but keep in mind that the two colors you choose, when sponged closely to one another, as they are in today's video, can produce a third shade. For example, red and yellow will make orange, yellow and blue make green, etc.
I've included pictures and cutting dimensions below the video in this post.
