Makeover Monday: Amazing Birthday Panel Card

Makeover Monday: Amazing Birthday Panel Card #makeover #stampinup
It finally feels like spring this Monday morning in central Illinois. The birds are singing; the sun is shining. It's going to be a beautiful day! Spring is a fresh start. And it in that spirit, I'm excited to introduce a new series on my blog: Makeover Monday. I'm teaming up with my friend Jen Davidson again to share some simple tips for making over your stamped creations. Click here to check out some other card makeovers that Jen and I created.
I like the layout that Jen used for this card, but I felt like the designer paper was too busy. The stamped images feel lost and the card kind of looks washed out. I kept the same layout for my card, but shortened the panels just a little so you could see more of the base card color. (The panels on the "after" card are 3-3/4" x 1-1/8".) I limited the busy pattern to one panel and introduced more colors from the designer paper: Coastal Cabana, Hello Honey, and Calypso Coral. I stamped each image in the same color as the cardstock panels to make them pop.
