A gorgeous friend of mine celebrated her birthday last week. Together, with her family, she has been caught up in the chaos that is COVID. After many false starts, lots of tears and a great amount of hope, they have finally made it home to Australia from their working holiday in Canada. They are currently serving out their mandatory 2 week hotel quarantine period in Perth and I’m super excited that they’ll be back in Bunbury very very soon!!!
It’s not every year you have to spend your birthday in isolation, and although I had hoped not to again need the Sharing Sunshine pdf released by Stampin’ Up! earlier in the year, there seemed no other way to celebrate a quarantine birthday than with a Quarantini.
If you’re unable to breathe natural air and only see the sun through a window (that you can’t open), I thought some OTT rainbow glimmer was in order!
The sparkle on this glimmer (available in the Annual Catalogue) is unreal! The rainbow effect just adds to its awesomeness!
The background for this card was stamped using ink tones to match the rainbow glimmer. I had already cut this stamp from the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set into three pieces (Happy + little-bit-late + Birthday) so I just took the Birthday stamp set and stamped it all over the background. The colours are Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pacific Point, Gorgeous Grape & Rich Razzleberry.
The “happy” for the card is a die set in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue called Happy Dies. It comes with a great range of accessory dies including a stitched edge, banner pennant and cloud strip. I can’t wait to have a play with the rest of the dies in the set. It’s always nice to have a set with great potential for creativity.
Welcome home to my wonderful friends – there’ll be lots of post quarantine celebrations after your (hopefully) once in a lifetime COVID birthday experience!
