Two tone birthday card using Stampin’ Up! Fancy Phrases

Hello everyone.

I challenged myself to use a colour that I’ve not used for a little while; namely Merry Merlot. It’s a lovely rich colour that I used a whole lot one Christmas but it’s not a colour I pick up much the rest of the year. I decided that I would only use Merry Merlot and white with just one stamp set and here’s what I created…

I’ve added a couple of more layers to this card that I usually do too. My card base is Merry Merlot and then I’ve got a layer of Basic White followed by a layer of Merry Merlot that I stamped with Versamark ink, added White Stampin’ Emboss powder and heat set it. I absolutely love the shine you get with this!

My top layer is Basic White card that I stamped with Merry Merlot ink and then attached to another piece of Merry Merlot card. I added this whole panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I was fun to challenge myself to do something new with an old favourite stamp set. Why don’t you try it too?
