Happy Birthday Ron

April 15, 2021

Today’s card is one that I made for my husband to celebrate his birthday yesterday. I was in the middle of getting ready for my Facebook Live where I shared this fancy fold and so I had to make one for Ron. I created the card base from Basic White card. The panels are decorated with layers of Basic Gray card and Well Suited Designer Series Paper. To decorate the front panel, I stamped the image from the A Good Man stamp set onto Basic White card and cut it out using the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.

I coloured the image using Ivory, Smoky Slate and Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blends. Once coloured, I covered the image with a post-it-note mask and used a Blending Brush to sponge some Balmy Blue ink and Sahara Sand ink around the image to create a sky and some sand.

The image panel is attached to a Basic Gray scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circles Dies. I attached the panel flat to the card front. To create the panel to hold my easel in place, I stamped “happy birthday” from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set onto Basic White card using Basic Gray ink. I cut out the greeting and Basic Gray card using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I attached the greeting to the Basic Gray rectangle then the card using dimensionals. To decorate the greeting panel, I stamped the greeting from the Itty Bitty Birthday stamp set using Basic Gray ink and the heart image from the A Good Man stamp set using Poppy Parade ink. This card suited my hubby, fancy in that it has a special fold but simple in that it is not too fussy!

Bye for now,
