deLIGHTful Birthday Card

Hello everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this CAS (clean and simple), deLIGHTful Birthday Card.

To make this card I followed current NBUS challenge #8 by my crafty friend Darnell of djkardkreations.

Darnell is celebrating 5th birthaversary, 1000 subscribers, 1000th post... CONGRATULATIONS DARNELL!! :o)

Idea and main rule of the challenge is to use NBUS (never before used stuff).
Darnell added optional theme for this challenge this time: Use Colored Pencils on Kraft.
For more information about the challenge, jump over to Darnell's blog.

NBUS I used to make this card is a super fun Your Next Stamp 'Perfect Chemistry' stamp set. I got this stamp set in November 2016.:o)

I went with optional theme and used colored pencils on Kraft. I tried coloring with colored pencils on various Kraft papers before (see here). I like it and enjoy coloring with colored pencils, but my favorite coloring technique is watercolor technique. :o)

How I made my card...

I stamped a light bulb from the set on a Crafter's Companion Neenah Desert Storm Kraft paper panel and colored it with colored pencils (white parts with white gel pen). I blended colors with paper stump (except white parts).

I stamped a sentiment from the set on the panel, glued black and design paper stripes on a white top folded card base, trimmed the panel and glued it on the card base and my card was finished.

Dimensions of card: 101 mm x 133 mm (4" x 5 1/4")
