Happy Birthday Jason

November 16, 2020

My son-in-law just celebrated his 40th birthday and today I am sharing the card I made for him. I was inspired by this one on Pinterest. I began by cutting a star from Whisper White card using the Stitched Stars Dies. I stamped “happy” from the Well Said stamp set below the die cut star, firstly using Coastal Cabana and then using Bermuda Bay. I embossed the panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. The panel is attached to scored and folded Night of Navy card. I cut a smaller star from Coastal Cabana card using the Stitched Stars Dies and another star from Bermuda Bay using the same dies.

I attached the Coastal Cabana star in the centre of the die cut star using Mini Dimensionals. I attached the Bermuda Bay star to the left of the Coastal Cabana star also using Mini Dimensionals. I die cut “happy” from Night of Navy card using the Well Written Dies and attached it below the stamped “happy”.

To create the inside of my card, I created a slightly smaller folded card from Whisper White card. I cut “happy” and “birthday” from Night of Navy card, I also cut just the “th” from birthday using the Well Written Dies. I cut “40” from Night of Navy card using the Playful Alphabet Dies. I attached the die cuts to the front of the folded Whisper White card, making sure that the fold was on the right. I stamped the solid balloon from the So Much Happy stamp set below the greetings using Coastal Cabana ink. I stamped the starry balloon from the same stamp set onto Whisper White card using Bermuda Bay ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Happy Die. I stamped the small striped balloon from the So Much Happy stamp set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the same Dies.

I attached the two die cut balloons partially over the Coastal Cabana balloon. I decorated the inside of the card by stamping three balloon strings from the So Much Happy stamp set onto the left hand side of the panel using Night of Navy ink. I stamped each of the balloons using the same coloured inks and cut them out using the Happy Dies. The balloons are attached to the ends of the strings with the solid Bermuda Bay balloon on dimensionals. The Whisper White card is attached to the inside of the Night of Navy card. I have made this fancy fold before and I am always delighted with the finished product. Thankfully Jason loved his card as well.

Bye for now,

Kris
