There is one occasion that everyone celebrates… their birthday! Everyone loves getting Happy Mail in and especially for their birthday. So let’s send more birthday cards this year! The card today is fun bright!
It’s a tall and skinny card that would actually be perfect for the cash gift! It is taller than a normal card so I may have to create a custom envelope.
I started with with the inspiration of wanting to use half of the pretty streamer paper rom the Picture Perfect Party 6×6 designer series paper pack. So right there I knew I would need a different card size. So I cut it in half at 3″ and left it at 6″ tall. So my card is 6 1/2″ by 6 1/4″ score at 3 1/4″.
I glued my DSP down to the front of the card then it was time to create my sentiment layer. I used a piece of Whisper White and stamped the Stylized Birthday with Bermuda Bay then die cut it with the Stitched Shape’s largest circle.
Now this is where I tried something different!
I clear embossed the whole die cut over the sentiment. So I stamped the VersaMark ink pad over the whole circle then added the clear embossing powder then heat set it until it was all shiny with now powdery spots. It really gives it a different look!
Before I add the circle to the card I fussy cut one of the half ribbons from another DSP sheet from the Picture Perfect Party stack and added it under the circle. Then I added the whole thing to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish up the card it was time for some Bling! which this time I used the Peekaboo Peach sequins from the Tutti-Frutti adhesive backed pack. I love that they already have the glue dots on the back!
