Blended Bloom Birthday


Inspiration:  Today's card uses some retired paper/colors, but can easily be re-created with current papers and the color of your choice.  It's not an exact CASE of another card, but I got the idea to pair the floral image and "Happy Birthday" from this gorgeous card.

Tips:
  • I used our Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the sequins.  Note that it takes a little longer for this glue to dry.
  • Even though I placed the main image on an angle, I tried to make sure the distance from the corners to the edge of the card were consistent.
  • When covering an entire card front with DSP, cut the DSP just slightly larger than 4-1/2x5-1/2 inches.  Apply Tombow multi glue to the top edge of the DSP.  Adhere the top edge of the DSP to the top of the card (I usually turn the card upside down and rest it against the table...just seems to help me line it up more easily).  Using glue makes it easy to wiggle the DSP into place.  Once you have the top edges lined up, add more glue to the the remaining three sides and adhere.  Trim the excess, and you'r all done!  I tried applying the glue to all of the edges at one time,but then I wound up with glue all over my hands and the paper sticking where I didn't want it to stick.  Using one edge to get started worked best for me.

I used paper from the retired 2013-2015 In Color DSP stack as well as a Strawberry Slush stamp pad.  Both are retired, but it would look great in Melon Mambo as well.
