Happy Birthday Sean

March 19, 2019

My son-in-law Sean recently celebrated a milestone birthday for which I had to create a special card.  I was inspired by this card on Pinterest by Rose Marie.  I did change the dimensions a little bit to accommodate my ideas.  I created the card base from Real Red card which I scored following Rose Marie’s instructions.   The front panel has a piece of  Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ Designer Series paper attached to Basic Gray card. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut out the greeting using the die from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and attached it inside a frame cut from Real Red card using the same die.  I cut an oval from Whisper White card using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and stamped across the bottom using the “smoke” image from the Geared Up Garage stamp set and Smoky Slate ink.  I stamped the same image across the top of the oval using Tranquil Tide ink which I stamped onto scrap paper twice before stamping onto the oval. I stamped the car image from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it using Real Red and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends.  I cut out the image and attached it to the stamped oval.  I cut a scalloped oval from Real Red card using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and attached the stamped oval.  The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the second panel I embossed Basic Gray card using the large cog wheel die from the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies and the Embossing Mats.  I cut Smoky Slate card twice using the same die.  The die cuts are attached over the embossed card.  I cut the No. 40 from Real Red card using the retired Large Numbers Framelits Dies and attached them over the die cuts.

To decorate the last panel, I attached a strip of Classic Garage 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper to the right hand side of Whisper White card.  This left somewhere for me to write a message.

Since I had altered the dimensions of the panels somewhat I needed to create an envelope.  I used Real Red 12″ x 12″ card and the Envelope Punch Board.  I cut the letters from Whisper White card using the Large Letters Framelits Dies and attached them to the front of the envelope.  I stamped the car image from the Geared Up Garage stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Garage Gears Thinlits Die.  The car is attached to the lower right hand corner of the front of the envelope.

I am so happy with the way this card turned out, so thank you to Rose Marie for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
