English Garden Birthday


Inspiration/Motivation:  Using patterned paper.

Tips:
  • Beautiful patterned paper like this can be the star of the show, so I used our thick Whisper White card stock for the card base.
  • The greeting is adhered with dimensionals.
  • Use a metallic Sharpie to create new options with rhinestones!  Since I embossed the "Happy Birthday" with gold embossing powder, I thought it would be cute to add a gold embellishment to the butterfly.  A rhinestone colored with a metallic gold Sharpie did just the trick!  The pack of Sharpies I bought (probably a year ago) included gold, silver and copper. Can't wait to make my own copper embellishments!
  • The butterfly is from the Garden in Bloom stamp set.  I stamped it off once before stamping it with the greeting.

Double Front Fold Card CASE


Inspiration:   This card by Lisa.  She has a great video tutorial.  See below for pictures of the inside of my card.

Tips:
  • Cut the card base at 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 inches, score at 4-1/4 inches and then trim off 2-1/4 inches from one side.  Emboss the card front.
  • Be sure to adhere the inside panel (with the butterfly in the picture below) first and then adhere the front panel to the front of the card.  Adhesive only goes on one side.  Be sure you're putting it on the correct side.
  • I adhered my sequins with a tiny bit of Tombow Multi Glue. Squeeze some out on a silicon mat and use atool like the QuickStik to lightly dip the sequin into the glue.
  • Dazzling Diamonds glitter was applied to the butterfly (inside card) with the Two-Way Glue Pen.
  • The flower centers on the last panel are sequins.
