Cool Birthday Card for #GDP093

Each week the Design Team over in the Global Design Project set a challenge. It can be anything from CASE the designer, to sketch, or layout. This week we have a colour challenge. I love playing along with the colour challenge as it really makes me think outside the box, putting colours together that maybe I wouldn't ordinarily do.

This week we have Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst and Pool Party. I love all three of these colours and thought they would work well together. I made a conscious decision not to look at the other entries before I got creating as I didn't want to be influenced by the other lovely designs I would see.

I had an idea using these three strong colours together and I also wanted to use the new stamp set Coffee Café in a different way to what you might imagine at first glance of this set

I had a few choices, I could use mainly Pool Party with some Lemon Lime Twist and an accent of Berry Burst or vice versa to balance the strong colours or I could go all out colour. So, I decided to go out of my comfort zone  with a little Andy Warholesque (sorry I know its not a word 😁) creativity!


I had great fun with this. I used the large cup stamp and the cream or froth to make my milk shakes. I added the straws and the dome lids I stamped on window sheet and cut out. I used the COOL and Happiest Birthday from the Cool Treats Stamp set. The cups are raised on Dimensionals and I have adhered my dome lids using a little snail along the stamped edge at the bottom.

I hope you like this fun birthday card, I hope I haven't hurt your eyes too much!  Maybe it has inspired you to have a go at the Global Design Project Challenge this week. Its all about the fun!
