It is fun to create some quick and easy birthday cards with patterned paper. This card uses the Paper Studio Eat Cake Paper Pack. You could create your own patterned paper by stamping party hats in multiple colors, but it is much faster if you use paper you have one hand.
I die cut the party hat patterned paper with the rectangle from Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Shapes. The paper pack had a sheet of the word celebrate in multi colored strips. I used my guillotine paper cutter to trim a turquoise strip and then adhered it on an angle to the party hat rectangle with 3M Foam Tape. To accent the turquoise color I found some matching glitter cardstock in the Paper Studio Glitter Paper Pack and cut it 1/8″ larger and adhered it to the back of the party hat rectangle with Sookwang Scor-Tape. I find this works best with the the rough surface of glitter cardstock.
The “you” from Simon Says Stamp You Matter Stamp and Die set was cut from both Turquoise and Red Glitter Cardstock and both were adhered slightly offset with Ranger Multi-Medium Matte Glue and then adhered just below the sentiment strip with the same glue.
The cardbase is made from Gina K. Designs 120# Cardstock. Cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5-1/2″. The focal image was adhered to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue. As a final embellishment Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen was added to all of the party hats and the card was done.
