Good morning! Over the next two days I’m going to share four birthday cards using the same fun HBD die from Simon Says Stamp and CZ Design! There’s a lot of variety in the finished cards and hopefully they’ll give you some new ideas! Today I have a pair of more feminine birthday cards to share!
First up is a bright and cheerful card featuring foiling, glimmer paste, and a shaker! To start I applied a thin layer of foil transfer gel over the Confetti stencil and let it dry until it was totally clear. Then I placed a piece of shattered rainbow foil over the panel and ran it through my laminator. The foil sticks to the gel and reveals this gorgeous rainbow design! Then I placed the Confetti stencil back over the panel at an offset and applied a thin layer of moonstone glimmer paste over the stencil. I peeled off the stencil and let the paste dry completely. It’s hard to capture in a photo but the foil has gorgeous shine and, when it catches the light, the glimmer paste just sparkles!
While the paste was drying I die-cut the HBD die from white cardstock. I adhered a small piece of acetate behind the die and built up a layer of foam tape around the edge of the word. Then I filled it with sparkling clear sequins. I adhered a piece of the same shattered rainbow foil to a small piece of white cardstock fit to the same size as the die and then adhered that to the foam tape. I stamped the rest of the sentiment from Tiny Words Birthday onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a thin label and added both sentiments to the stenciled panel. I finished the card with a few extra sparkling clear sequins scattered around the shaker! 🙂
My second card was a little unexpected. I have a video coming next week with a few alcohol ink backgrounds and this one was a leftover panel I didn’t use. It didn’t quite work for those cards but was perfect here! I applied copic alcohol ink in R12, RV10, and RV14 to a panel of yupo paper along with Pinata brass metallic ink.
I die-cut the HBD die from white cardstock again and also cut a small panel to fit behind the HBD die. I adhered it behind the HBD die and then inlaid the letters back inside the negative space. I also adhered the leftover letters from the last card over them to create a slightly higher sentiment. Then I applied a single layer of foam mounting tape behind the sentiment and then wound some gold metallic thread on top I applied another layer of foam mounting tape over the thread and then adhered it to the card. I like sandwiching the thread between layers of foam tape to give the thread a little more movement! Finally I added a few gold metallic sequins to finish the card!
I hope you’ll stop by tomorrow to see my second pair of more masculine cards featuring a new-to-me product that I just adore! Also, don’t forget to take advantage of this awesome weekend sale from Simon Says Stamp!
