Hey friends! We had a VERY special birthday in our family last week and I wanted to pop in to share one of the birthday cards I made to celebrate. My sister-in-law turned the big 21 and we couldn’t let it fall by the waist side.
I was able to pull from some of my favorite companies and create this super fabulous birthday card/gift certificate for her brother to give her. I started things off by stamping and coloring the Trinity Stamps Happy Hour set that came out last year. I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. Next I began working on the background with the Newton’s Nook plaid stencil, some olive green and red ink and then I went over it a second time with Thermoweb transfer gel, and then gold decofoil. Pulling from all of those colors, I used the Newton’s Nook circle frames dies to cut a stitched circle from red glitter paper. Then I used a smaller Spellbinders circle die to cut an olive green one to layer.
I heat embossed Happy from Happy Hour on the green circle and die cut 21st from Trinity Stamps Marshmallow Number dies. I used the same ink from the stenciling to go over the top layer of the 21st so it coordinates. At this point I started layering things together and realized that the top of my card was sparse. I dug around and found the scripty cheers die from Lawn Fawn and thought it was the perfect match! I cut it from white cardstock and inked it up with the red and green from the background.
I am so excited about how awesome this card turned out! So much texture and depth with the different cardstocks, layers, heat embossing and decofoil. It’s exactly what I was hoping for.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
