This was easier than it looks. To start, distress inks in rainbow colours were blended with a Clarity brush through a Diagonal Grid stencil on a Mixed Media stitched panel. A balloon was then die cut from it and vellum was adhered on the back to cover the opening.
‘Happy’ was die cut from a scrap of DIY black glitter cardstock. ‘Birthday’ was die cut once from white cardstock and then four times from black cardstock to be stacked. The string was die cut from white cardstock.
The assembled panel was mounted with foam adhesive to a white top fording card base. Clear shimmer on the birthday die cut and clear sequins finished off the card.
I didn’t want the balloon cut out to go to waste, so I made a CAS birthday card. Inlaid the balloon and used the hidden die cut technique for the ‘celebrate’ sentiment.
Too funny. I actually had something different in mind, but I guess that’s the way it goes sometimes. Thank you for visiting. Have a great day!
Hi everyone. I can’t believe it’s December 1st already! The crazy busy season has started. So I’m just sneaking in a CAS Christmas card.
Stamped the bird image with Memento black ink on a scrap of X-Press It paper. Coloured it with Copics then die cut out with the matching die.
Die cut the branch (retired Memory Box – thanks Nancy 😉) from brown cardstock. Die cut Noel twice from white scraps. Ombré coloured Noel with Copics and added clear glitter.
Adhered all the pieces onto a white stitched rectangle from my stash. Placed a snow stencil over the whole panel and applied white embossing paste. Once the paste dried, mounted the panel with foam adhesives onto a white top folding card base to finish.
Happy Monday everyone. Today I am sharing a CAS birthday card created for my sweet crafty friend Nancy. Her birthday is today! Unfortunately, I didn’t send it early enough and she did not get this before leaving on her trip… so surprise, Nancy! Hope you’re enjoying your birthday getaway. For her card, I brought back my favourite Buddy image and paired him with a NBUS happy die. Love these triple layer word dies.
An A2 size stitched rectangle was die cut from X-press It paper. Buddy was stamped with Memento black ink then coloured and shaded with cool gray Copic markers.
The word happy and first layer were die cut from white cardstock. The happy word diecut was placed back into the negative piece to make it easier to colour it with a mini blending tool and distress inks.
The bottom happy layer was die cut from black cardstock and another happy word was die cut from white cardstock to be stacked. Birthday was white heat embossed on a scrap of black cardstock. The stitched panel was mounted to a top folding card base before the sentiments were adhered. Clear shimmer on the pastel coloured happy finished the card.
