Celebrated Every Day Birthday Card

My granddaughter Emma is turning twelve is quite the little artist.  The cute image from La-La Land Crafts entitled Artist Marci is perfect for her.  Her favorite color is aqua/teal blue and so that is what I used to color the image and stencil.

I originally made this card as a spinner, but when I was showing it to a friend the string broke and there wasn’t any way I could add new string between the front and back image because they had been adhered together with Sookwang Be Creative Tape and so I decided to make it a see through card.

This is a digital image and so it was easy to print both an original and mirror image.  They were colored with Copic Markers (listed below) and then die cut using the Silhouette PIXScan Mat.  As stated above the two images were adhered together with Be Creative Tape.

I pulled some striped blue ccardstock from the Echo Park Hello Winter 6 x 6 Pack and die cut it with a Memory Box Stitched Rectangle that would cover a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top folding cardbase, made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  The patterned paper was temporarily adhered to the front of the cardbase so a rectangle opening could be die cut through both the cardbase and the patterned paper.

Southbend Monofilament Line was adhered between the two focal images, leaving long tails.  The images were adhered in the center of the small rectangle with the strings being secured with more Sookwang Be Creative Tape then more tape was added to the back of the patterned paper and it was adhered to the front of the cardbase, covering the strings and securing them in place.

The Pretty Pink Posh Scalloped Rectangle Frame was used to cut four teal blue frames.  Before adhering them to the front of the card the sentiment from Mama Elephant Make a Wish was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  Then two frames were together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut in half so that it would be narrow enough to be placed on the back of the frame adding dimension.  The other two were adhered to the inside of the card with liquid glue.

When the string broke on the spinner a piece of acetate was cut just smaller than the opening and was adhered to the front of the first frames with 1/8″ Be Creative Tape.  Another teal frame was die cut and adhered over the acetate with the same tape.  The focal image was run through my Xyron  Sticker Maker so that it would be smooth when placed on the acetate.

Since you  could see through the front of the card there wasn’t any place to stamp the sentiment and write a message, so a quarter sheet of Neena Classic Crest was cut 4 1/4″ x 5 3/4″ and the Echo Park Balloon Stencil and ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks Broken China and Peacock Feather.  It was scored at 5 1/4″ and the fold was adhered to the back of the card with some Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Another frame was die cut and an edge was cut to adhere to the top of the shorter stencil piece.  This allowed it to be a tri-fold where the sentiment could stamped behind the stenciled panel and a message written.

Happy Birthday Abagail

This card was made for a young woman at church whose favorite color is purple.  I found a beautiful plaid from the Doodlebug Polar Pals 6 x 6 Paper Pack that made the La-La Land Crafts Birthday Cake Molli image pop on the paper.  I love the way it turned out.  Happy Birthday Abigail.

The image is a digital stamp and was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a LaserJet printer to ensure it wouldn’t bleed when colored with Copic Markers (colors listed below).  The Silhouette Cameo PIXScan Mat was used to cut around the image once it had been colored.

The patterned paper was cut with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes and adhered directly to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

A My Favorite Things Stitched Oval Frame was cut from white cardstock to draw attention to the focal image.  To add dimension 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was cut in half and adhered to the back and then adhered to the card front.

Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and before adhering it to the card front it was placed to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday, which was stamped with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Detailed White Embossing Powder.  The focal image was then attached by removing the backing of the foam tape and the card was done.

Have a Fabulous Birthday Jennifer

I’m having total hip replacement the end of October and thought that it would be best to make all the birthday cards for the young women in our ward throughout the end of the year.  All the cards I made for the young women are girl images, mostly from La-La Land Crafts.  This one is Fabulous Marci.  This is a digital image and was printed on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock and then cut with the Silhouette Cameo and the PIXScan Mat.

This is a card that was made for Jennifer.  Her favorite color is blue and she has lovely long dark blond/light brown hair.  It was colored with Copic Markers (listed below).  To add some dimension to the card I accented the headband and roses with Silver Stickles.

To assemble the card I went through my stash of patterned paper and found this pretty Baby Blue Paisley paper from The Paper Studio.  It was die cut using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle.  Since the patterned paper has a little black detailing, Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock was cut 1/8” larger and adhered to the back with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  It was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

The sentiment consists of a die cut from the Sizzix Celebrate pack, which was cut three times from black cardstock and adhered together using Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive.  To determine placement the focal image was laid on the patterned paper, along with the die cut word, and the secondary sentiment from Winnie & Walter The Big the Bold and Party was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black.  The “birthday” die cut was adhered above using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and then adhered to the card front and the card was done.
