Shake it Birthday!

No comments
Hello Friends!

I am short of birthday cards, and no matter what month I am always in need of birthday cards! 

I cut a 6 x 12 of Whisper White cs, and lay the sheet onto the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet, and die cut the word "Birthday" 3x and stacked it on top of each die cut to create the thickness. The multipurpose sheet makes it easier to attach together quickly without the fuss of having the glue dry. Once the birthday is adhere together, then I used my markers to color in the rainbow colors. You can use your ink pads too if you don't have markers.

You probably want to know how I got the see through ovals! Here is the details. 

  1. Cut (1) 4" x 5-1/4" of Color Theory DP. Align the DP to the base card, and add temporary adhesive to hold the two papers in place. Centre the oval die (#4), and crank it through the big shot. I highly recommend using the magnetic platform and if needed, add tape to hold the die in place to prevent it from moving. Die cut through both thickness. Remove the DP from the base card.
  2. Cut (2) 4" x 5-1/4" of window sheet, and adhere behind the dp and in front of the base card. Set aside.
  3. Add foam tape around the perimeter of the DP and around the oval. Remove the protective backing.
  4. On your base card, add whatever shaker elements you want in the centre, and then carefully lay your DP to the base card. 
  5. Die cut (1) nesting oval dies (#4 and #5) from DP, and adhere to the base card.
  6. Punch 3 balloons from the balloon punch in Whisper White. I colored the balloons in with my markers, and spritz the balloons with water to create the watermark effect. Let dry before adding to the base card. Add silver thread for the balloons.
  7. Attach your assembled "birthday" die cuts with multipurpose glue.
  8. Stamp "Happy" onto remnant basic black with white craft. Add white embossing powder and then heat set it until the powder is melted. Trim, and then attach it to the base card.
