Wish – It’s Your Birthday

When I saw the Altenew Layered Plaid dies I thought they would make great masculine cards.  I also really like the new My Favorite Things Wish Die.  For this card I used a green, yellow and orange color pallet.

I pulled paper from my scraps to make this card.  It is a little brighter than I anticipated, but I like the way it looks.  I cut the green base color to 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock with Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  I then die cut the plaids from scraps of yellow and orange.  I used Elmer’s Craft Bond Spray Adhesive to adhere them to the cardbase.

Originally I only cut the Wish die with green, but it got lost on the page with how busy the background was, so I die cut it again from the yellow and orange and stacked them slightly offset to see all the colors.  I pulled out some Copic Markers to give some color dimension and then added Glossy Accents.  This helped the sentiment standout on the card.  I stamped the secondary sentiment from CA Designs Birthday Palooza onto yellow cardstock with Altenew Evergreen Ink and used Copic Markers to give it a little ombre effect.  I added it under the Wish die cut word with a thin strip of 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape and the card was done.
