Happy Birthday Patterned Paper

Sometimes a beautiful patterned paper can make a lovely card.  The card below is made from some paper from the DCWV Happy Day Stack Paper, which was cut to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ and adhered to a side folding card base, made with Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored 4 1/4″ with the ScorBuddy and the Simon Says Stamp Small Teflon Bone Folder.


The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings Stamp, stamped on some Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock. The paper was prepped with the Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Pad to remove any oils before stamping with VersaMark Ink, sprinkled with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, and heat setting with the Marvy Embossing Heat Tool.

The sentiment was cut with QuicKutz Nesting Frame #3 Die.  I love this die set because it has two dies that go together to make both a top and bottom layer.  The sentiment and border were cut with the second set of dies, top layer of Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and bottom layer with Paper Accents Gold Mirror Cardstock.  They were glued together with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and then adhered to the card front with a Creative Hands Peel & Stick Foam Sheet, cut with the die and trimmed to be just smaller so it won’t show.  A small cluster of flowers and leaves were fussy cut from leftover cardstock and adhered to the upper right corner of the sentiment frame. It was pretty, but I finally cut just some roses from some of the paper, adhered them with 3M 1/2 Foam Tape. The added dimension was just what was needed and the card was done.
