Alcohol Striped Background Time to Celebrate

For this card I decided to apply the alcohol inks side to side.  I added more yellow to the felt pad that I had in other cards and really like the bright pop of color it added.

Yupo Paper is usually 5″ x 7″ in size, which give you a little room to select the best section of the background to use for your card. Once it was dry it was run through the Big Shop with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle. Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock was cut 1/8″ larger and the two were adhered together using Be Creative Tape.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. The background was cut with a paper trimmer to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and adhered directly to the cardbase with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive..

The focal image is a digital stamp from Papernest Dolls called Cupcake Girl.  It was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a laser jet printer and colored with Copic Markers Y19, Y17, Y15, Y11; Y08, Y06, Y02; RV14, RV13, RV11, RV10; E11, E00, E000, R20.

Once the coloring was complete the image was die cut using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was added to the back by tracing the image onto the paper backing of the foam and fussy cutting with scissors.  To let the image standout from the colorful background a rectangle of Neena Solar White was cut with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle and dry embossed with the Darice Dots Embossing Folder.  It was adhered directly to the striped background with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  The focal image was adhered to the embossed rectangle with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.

The sentiment from Whimsy Stamps Party Mini Letter Seals was stamped on a scrap of bright pink cardstock with Gina K. Designs Passionate Pink Ink.  It was then die cut using a My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX die.  A small yellow ribbon was added to the top, 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back and adhered to the lower right of the white rectangle and the card was done.

A bright and colorful birthday card for MaryLynn.
