Color Dare Birthday Card #3

I am celebrating my thirtieth birthday by bringing you a handmade birthday card idea every day this week.

Today's card ties in with the Color Dare of Pacifica, Crystal Blue, Goldrush and Honey.

I made this card using a birthday stamp set, but you could easily use it for a non-birthday occasion. It uses the spotlighting technique, which I tried today for the first time and love!

I simply background stamped the card, then cut some circles out and placed the same image in the negative space but in a different colour. This used all four colours, and I also stamped the sentiment in Goldrush in a larger circle.

CTMH supplies used:
Cardstock: Crystal Blue, Honey
Inks: Crystal Blue, Goldrush, Honey, Pacifica
Stamp set: Lovely Birthday 
Tools: Circle Punch


  1. What a fun card! I love how you did the background and used the circle die-cuts to pop some colour into the background and for the sentiment. Thank you for inspiring us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.

  2. Great idea, Lauren. Looks like you magically got the paper and ink to change colors for you! :) Thanks for joining the Color Dare this week.

  3. Love how you used the stamped circles in a different color! Great card. Thanks for joining us at Color My heart
