For Colour Dare Challenge #458 I made a 90th Birthday card for a gentleman who's like family and this month his wife also turned 90 so I needed to make another 90th card. I took the Design Space file I created in that challenge and tweeked it to make it more feminine. See my post #458 for that design space file.
For this project, I used the Wild Berry Cardstock as the base, Ballerina Cardstock as the cover and Nectarine Cardstock as the flower centres. I then used White Daisy cardstock to cut a centre section to write on. You could write directly onto the Wild Berry but easier to read in white. I did trim the white a little at the top to fit nicer into the inside of the 90 so that the card sat flatter.
Here is my FREE Sharable Cricut Design Space File to make this card (Click HERE)
Note: The flowers are from the Cricut® Flower Market Digital Collection so you will need that before you can open my free Cricut file. If you already have it you should be able to open no problems, if you need it you can purchase from my website or your CTMH Makers website.
After I'd cut all the peices I decided the ballerina peice was too flat and I wanted to give it dimension so I grabbed out my Ballerina Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and stamped Birthday all over it in a random pattern. My ink pad looks like it needs a refill as the whole pad isn't juicy but I liked how the mottled look was for this stamp, I thought it created extra dimension... so I wasn't overly concerned, but I will need to grab some Ballerina re-inker. Ballerina is a favourite in our house.
Before I stuck the flowers onto the card I used my thumb nail to curve the petals upwards to create some more dimension. The card was to be posted so it might get flattened but I was hoping it stayed dimensional.
Super happy with this colour arrangement for my card. You can get a selection of those colours in the Boo Crew Coordinating Cardstock pack or you can create your own cardstock pack with a Custom Cardstock Pack--12 Sheet or a Custom Cardstock Pack—24 Sheet. This means you can get a selection of coloured cardstock of your choice. Minimum quantity of 2 sheets per colour.
