Birthday Wishes

Hi friends

Let's talk Pinkfresh Studio Washi Tapes!

I first started using Pinkfresh Studio Washi Tapes a few years ago and I was blown away by them. They are superb quality, amazing value for money and so versatile. Pinkfresh Studio has always appealed to me because of the beautiful designs, how pretty their products make my cards. I was always hesitant with washi tapes because I just could not see how I would use them for the style of card I tend to gravitate towards. 

For my card today, I decided on using the Celebrate Washi Tape. This truly is a versatile washi suitable for weddings, engagements, birthdays and graduations. I decided on using the pink hues for my card but there are also yellow and blue balloons should you wish to use those instead.

For the background I pulled out the Stippled Plaid Press Plate that was released in February this year. I heat embossed it in gold because the washi tape has gold in it. 

Then, I pulled out the Cherry Blossom Dye Ink and added just a bit of ink blending around the edges. I thought this would tie in the pink hues from the balloons and the cake images. 

Just to break up the background and 'ground' the images, I added a white Blanket Stitched die cut oval in the centre of the base. Using a combination of glue and foam dots, I then added the die cut images to the right of the oval cardstock. 

In the coordinating Celebrate Stamp Set there are a couple of perfect sentiments. Therefore, I stamped one of them-Birthday Wishes in black ink and die cut it a couple of times in white cardstock. Then, one more time in gold cardstock. This adds a nice shadow touch to a finished sentiment. 

I placed the sentiment on an angle tucked in with the balloons. Then, to finish I die cut the bow in gold from the ever useful Wrap Around Elements that was released in April 2023. Added some Ice Clear Drops and voila!

As my usual, keep and eye out for the reel over on Instagram at @pinkfreshstudio and @cherylespiecreates
