Happy Birthday Elyssa

March 6, 2018

My beautiful granddaughter Elyssa turns 10 today and I wanted to share the card I made for her with you.  I found a card with a fabulous fold by Melissa Davies complete with downloadable tutorial.  The card uses the very beautiful Picture Perfect Party Designer Series paper This paper is so gorgeous I was afraid to cut it!  The card uses 8 different pieces of this designer series paper which I cut to 2″ x 4″ because I wanted the cuts to be a little more economical.  I attached the designer series paper to Basic Black 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and then to each of the panels on the card.  I cut the letters from Basic Black card using the Large Letters Framelits Dies and the “happy” from Whisper White card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.   I stamped each of the Pandas from the Party Pandas stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut them out.  I coloured the balloon, the heart and the party had using a Berry Burst Stampin’ Write Marker.  The panda with the balloon is attached to the panel with the “I”.  The panda with the placard is attached behind the “T” and the panda with the party hat is attached behind the “A”.

To gift the card you need to create a box using the Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.  I cut my box from Whisper White card.  I cut a circle from another of the patters in the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and attached it to a Basic Black scalloped circle cut using the same dies.  I stamped the panda with the balloon once more onto scrap Whisper White card and coloured the balloon using a Berry Burst Stampin’ Write MarkerI stamped “happy” from the Party Panda stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I punched the greeting using the Classic Label Punch and then punched the left hand edge using the Triple Banner Punch.  I attached the greeting to a slightly wider piece of Basic Black card (1.2cm wide) and trimmed the right hand edge straight.  I attached the banner to the back of the balloon string and then attached the panda to the designer series paper.  I did add a mini dimensional behind the left hand edge of the banner to give it a little more dimension.  I cut “birthday” from Basic Black card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die and attached it across the lower part of the designer series paper circle.

I am so happy to use this beautiful designer series paper on such a lovely card.  Thank you again to Melissa for sharing such a great card and being so generous with the dimensions.

Bye for now,

Kris

    Hi Kris

    Happy birthday to Elyssa, what a lucky little girl to receive this card for her birthday. Kris, I loved the card, the brightness and happiness it gives out is wonderful.

    So much work but so worth it.

    Thank you so much for my lovely birthday card Kris. The basket of flowers really cheered me. We had come home from my brother’s funeral in Sydney and your card was here. Thank you so much.

    Take care Kris.

    Kind regards

    Mary xxx
