Stampin' Up Sweet Sweet Citrus Birthday Card for Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Friday Eve and welcome to another week with the Happy Inkin' Thursday Krew.  This week we were provided with a sketch to create with and I am sure that we will see some fantastic creations today.  I hope you are as excited as I am to see what the Krew comes up with.  I decided to use Stampin' Up Sweet Citrus Bundle.  

Here is the sketch:

I started by running a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with Stampin' Up Stitched Greenery Die.  I adhered it to a Evening Evergreen card base.

I stamped the citrus fruit image from Stampin' Up Sweet Citrus Stamp Set using So Saffron ink on  a piece of Basic White card stock.  

I die cut and embossed the fruit with Stampin' Up Hybrid Embossing Folder.  I love the effect you can get with this set.  It cuts and embosses with one motion.  Super cool!!!

I adhered the die cuts to the card front with liquid adhesive and Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Sweet Citrus Stamp Set using Evening Evergreen ink on a piece of Basic White.  I die cut the sentiment with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

I finished the card front off with Stampin' Up Elegant Faceted Gems.

I hoped enjoyed my take on this weeks sketch!  Up next is Terry Lynn.
