A late November birthday gets lost in Thanksgiving celebrations and a December birthday gets lost in Christmas, so I like to make sure the birthday cards I send look nothing like a holiday. Here’s a card that’s easy to make in a hurry, but still looks like it is especially for a birthday.
Note: finished card size is 4 1/4” x 5 1/2”
Whisper White (SU!)
4 1/4” x 11”, score at 5 1/2”
|Stamper’s Select White (Paper Trey)|| |
3” x 4”
Rose Red (SU!)
a) 4 x 5 1/4”
Patterned paper (unknown)
3 3/4” x 5”
Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cupcake Crazy (SU!)
COPIC Markers: BG000, BG11, BG13, RV10, RV21, E31 (Imagination International); SPICA Glitter Pens: red, blossom, turquoise, gold (Imagination International); Pink ribbon (Hobby Lobby); Scalloped Oval Nestabilities, Plain Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders); Cuttlebug (Provo Craft); Scor-Pal; Adhesive Transfer Gun 714 (Scotch); Rotary trimmer with straight and scalloped blades (Fiskars); Scissors
Using the black ink, stamp the cupcake image on the Paper Trey white cardstock piece, and cut it out with the plain oval die. Run it through twice – once to cut and once to emboss.
Color with COPICs, and enhance the image with the SPICA glitter pens.
Cut a scalloped oval out of the smaller pink card stock. Use a scalloped edge blade to cut the patterned paper panel.
Mount in this order:
- pink cardstock
- patterned paper
- pink oval
- image oval
Tie the ribbon around the card in a bow above the mounted image.
Thanks for stopping by!
