Hello, Happy over the Hump Day!
Today I have two super easy, super cute birthday cards for you.
I made a video to give you some tips:)
A Simple card with a Big and Bold die cut and sentiment gives the card a WOW factor!
Using your Stamparatus lets you crank out a bunch of these babies in no time!
And the Big Shot die cutting is so simple, too.
Whisper White Card Base: Cupcakes 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″,
Presents 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″
Coastal Cabana and Melon Mambo panels: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Basic Black Cardstock for die cuts: Presents 2-1/2″ x 5-1/4″, Cupcakes 2-1/8″ x 4″
Black/Silver Ribbon: 5-1/2″ and 6-1/2″
Here is a fun card using the new Mango Melody cardstock embossed
with the Striped Scallop Embossing Folder.
I used the Stampin’ Up Piece of Cake stamp set bundled with the Cake Builder Punch. I used Poppy Parade as the card base with some Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green thrown in. I stamped and cut out with the balloons with the Broadway Birthday Bundle.
It happens every catalog…I see a bundle…pass it over…then, say…
hmmm, I am going to take a second look at it…
And, by golly, I LOVE it!! The Stampin’ Up Humming Along Bundle is just fabulous!
Look at that huge bloom and that lovely hummingbird.
I even made it stand out more on my card by heat embossing it in black. Watch my video to see how I did it with Memento, Versamark, and my handy Stamparatus…
*Thank you to Carol for her reminder of SU carrying black embossing powder item #146956…I was actually thinking how we did not carry Black Craft Ink anymore that we could emboss with clear and get no strays!!!! I loved this technique because we could use CLEAR instead of BLACK embossing powder because it is neater:)
Notice that die cut negative in the middle of the birthday card? Isn’t that cool?
I can’t wait to use the blue die cut that came out on some other card.
