Carousel Birthday in Gold for WWYS #112


Hello and welcome to this week’s WWYS Challenge. I hope you’ve all had a relaxing and happy Easter break. This week we’re playing with the gorgeous Carousel Birthday stamp set. I just adore this set and I’ve used some elements from the coordinating Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit.

My card has a shaker element which I made by cutting the middle from one of the tags in the kit. All my stamping has been gold heat embossed and I just love the effect of gold paired with the pinky-orange tones of Calypso Coral. The sequins are also from the kit.


1. Removing the paper covering from the top of the adhesive tape prior to adhering it to your card will make it easier to manipulate it into the shape required.

2. To prevent sequins getting stuck to the adhesive tape around the shaker element, rub over the inside of the tape with an embossing buddy.

Sadly, we’ll be saying goodbye to this suite at the end of May. If you’ve had your eye on these products, now is the time to grab them as they’re on the retiring list. The paper I’ve used on the front of my card is from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack which is currently 30% off, and the embellishment kit is 20% off.  I think these products will sell out fast and they’re only available while stocks last.

I finished the inside of the card simply with a coordinating sentiment in gold.

Thanks for visiting my blog. If you’ve left me a comment, thank you! You’ve made my day. Be sure to hop on over to the WWYS blog to see what everyone else has made and enter your own project. You could be our next guest designer!
