Vellum Greetings Birthday Card

I have a friend who is just starting out with cardmaking and so she is using digital stamps that she finds on Pinterest.  She has found some lovely images and so I went searching and found digital stamp pin 51087777001816094.  I printed it onto Neena Classic Crest 80# Solor White Cardstock with my HP Laser Printer.  I then die cut the image using the PIXScan Mat and the Silhouette Cameo, which is so much easier than fussy cutting the image.

The image is quite wide and so I decided to use a side fold A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  I wanted to give some dimension and interest to the card and so I die cut a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.  Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was added to the back for added dimension.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and it was adhered to the dry embossed rectangle/

I decided to add the sentiment from Paper Smooches Scripty Sayings by stamping it on a strip of Vellum with VersaMark Ink and heat embossing it with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder.  I cut it to be 1” tall and wrapped it around the focal image, adhering it to the back of the panel with Scotch Tape, it was then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.

Spring Cupcake Birthday Card

For this card I printed the coloring image Spring Cupcake on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.  It was then placed on the Silhouette PixScan Mat and cut with the Silhouette Cameo.

The image was colored with Copic Markers: R85, R83, R81; YG17, YG05, YG03; Y17, Y08; E49, E29, E27

A coordinating rectangle of pink patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Kraft in Color Paper Pad was die cut with the My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle.  It was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with the Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.

The word “celebrate” die is from Sizzix Celebrate die set three time from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock.  They were glue together using a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen.  The cupcake and die cut word were placed on the patterned paper to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment from Winnie & Walter The Big, the Bold, and Happy with Memento London Fog Ink.

Rather than using 3M Foam Tape I decided to try tracing the image on Darice Sticky Back Foam and fussy cutting it smaller than the outline and adhered it to the back of the image for added dimension.  It worked great and I really liked the way it was one solid image of foam.

The die cut word and cupcake were adhered to the card front with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.
