Beautiful Birthday

April 4, 2022

During March I have two granddaughters who celebrate their birthdays. Elyssa at the beginning of the month and Ava at the end of the month. I loved the first card I created so much, I thought I would make them both the same card in different colours. These are both gift card (or cash) holders. I cut the folding base from Basic White card and attached it to a Magenta Madness card base. To decorate the front of the card I attached a panel of Magenta Madness card which I cut using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. I stamped the image from the Beautiful Moments stamp set onto Basic White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I cut it out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies. I coloured the image using Magenta Madness, Light Medium (light) Skin tones, Medium (dark) Skin Tones, Dark Fresh Freesia and Dark Evening Evergreen Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the “happy birthday” from the Timeless Tulips stamp set onto the bottom of the image panel using Magenta Madness ink.

The panel is attached to the centre of the die cut using dimensionals. I cut a piece of Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper and punched the bottom edge using the Tailored Tag Punch. The panel is attached to the centre of the folding section, making sure that I can tuck my gift card (or money) into the punched out section. I stamped the greeting from the A Grand Kid stamp set onto Basic White card using Magenta Madness ink and cut it out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

The greeting is attached it to the Designer Series Paper. To decorate the last panel I cut Basic White card using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and stamped the greeting from the retired Strong & Beautiful Stamp set using Magenta Madness ink. The panel is attached to a slightly larger Magenta Madness stitched rectangle.

As I said I was so happy with this card, I created another in exactly the same manner but this time using Shaded Spruce card and ink. I used Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends to colour the dress on the card front this time and added a slightly different Basic White die cut to the last inside panel. This one is cut using the Scalloped Contour Dies.

Aren’t they pretty? I know that each of my granddaughters loved their cards.

Bye for now,

Kris
