Happy Birthday Jae

October 30, 2020

Yesterday was my Granddaughter Jae’s birthday and I thought I would share the card I made for her with you. I decided to use the Curvy Dies to create her card. I based the card loosely on a sketch challenge at Case This Sketch which has long expired but it immediately made me think of the Curvy Dies. I cut Real Red card using the detailed border die from the Curvy Dies. I also cut Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, Old Olive and Night of Navy using the dotted border die from the Curvy Dies. I attached the Real Red piece onto the lower right hand corner of Whisper White card and trimmed away any excess. I layered each of the other pieces on top and trimmed away any excess. I stamped several of the balloon images from the So Much Happy stamp set onto the Whisper White card using Crushed Curry, Night of Navy, Old Olive and Real Red ink.

I used a ruler and my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to add balloon strings. I stamped several more balloons onto scrap Whisper White card using Real Red, Crushed Curry and Night of Navy ink. I cut out the balloons using the co-ordinating Happy Dies. I also cut two balloons from Highland Heather card using the same dies. I stamped the Highland Heather balloons with the “star” image from the So Much Happy stamp set using Highland Heather ink. I attached the Crushed Curry balloon and small Highland Heather balloon flat onto the card front. The other balloons are attached using Mini Dimensionals. I once more drew in the balloon strings where necessary using a ruler and the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. I stamped “happy” from the So Much Happy stamp set onto Whisper White card using Real Red ink.

I stamped “birthday” from the same stamp set underneath using Night of Navy ink. I cut out the greeting using one of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I also cut Highland Heather card using another of the Tasteful Labels Dies. I attached the stamped label to the Highland Heather label and then the card front using dimensionals. The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Highland Heather card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I cut Highland Heather card using the detailed border die from the Curvy Dies and attached it across the bottom of Whisper White card. I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set using Highland Heather ink.

This card has so much going on, colours and dies and stamping, but, I love it and so did Jae. I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris
