IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY
This fun sentiment set is great for both it’s large sentiment that can take center stage on your card, as well as the smaller sentiments that can be added to the front, or on the inside.
I just love the script font that is used for this big sentiment. It really makes a statement!
A few days ago, I shared how you can step up your cards by using a stencil to create the background. You can see that post HERE, if you missed it. Well, I decided to do that again with this card! First, cut your panel of white cardstock. Attach the stencil to the front, and hold i t in place from behind with some low-tack removable tape. I like Thermo Web Purple Tape for this. Flip your panel right side up , and use a blending tool to apply Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide ink through the stencil. I chose this colour as it’s a nice yellow/gold colour, perfect for stars.
Remove and clean your stencil (before you forget). Set up your panel in your MISTI or other stamp platform, and line up the large and smaller sentiments. Pick them up on the lid, and ink up with a dark blue. After stamping in the dark blue, cover the stamps again with Versamark ink, and stamp over the first. Now, cover the stamping with clear embossing powder, and heat set. Your front panel is now complete.
Create a card base of dark blue – try to match up with the dark blue ink you used, if possible. Attach a bright green/yellow cardstock panel on top, with liquid glue. Next, attach a strip of patterned paper down the left side. Finally, attach your front panel, with foam tape, for dimension.
GET READY FOR BIRTHDAYS
I don’t know about you, but we have a lot of September birthdays in our family – including mine! So, I need lots of birthday cards. This is a good one to have on hand, as it can be for male or female. If you’d like to use some of the supplies I did, I’ve included some links below. I hope you’ve been inspired to get creating – have fun! 🙂
