Fun and easy Birthday card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy birthday card made with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. In case you have overlooked the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, it also coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, the Classic Label Punch, and the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies! Having so many options with a stamp set makes it super easy to create with!

Before I created this card, I first started with the Brights 6” x 6” DSP, decided to use the Melon Mambo striped paper, chose my color combination, and went from there!

You will start with a card base in Smoky Slate cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The base layer is Powder Pink cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Striped Scallops TIEF:

For the front of the card, you will first cut 1 ½” piece from the 6” x 6” DSP (it will be 1 ½” x 6”) and then cut the remaining 4 ½” x 6 at 3”, so you will then have to pieces measuring 3” x 4 ½”. You will use a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and Smokey Slate cardstock for the Celebrate Thinlit and use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the two pieces together, sliding it slightly so the Smokey Slate cardstock is showing underneath. For the balloons, I used the balloon stamp from the set to stamp in Smokey Slate and Powder Pink inks on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched out. The bigger balloon is punched out of a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock. The sentiment is stamped in Smokey Slate and Melon Mambo inks on Whisper White cardstock and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch. For the balloon ribbon, I used some Silver and Whisper White Baker’s Twine that I tied in a knot:

To assemble the front, I adhered the DSP to the embossed base layer and then adhered to the card base. I cut Mini Dimensionals in half to adhere the Celebrate on the DSP and then used Dimensionals for the balloons and sentiments:

The inside sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate ink and the flowers are stamped in Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, and Granny Apple Green inks. I cut the 1 ½” piece of DSP in half (¾” x 6”), adhered along the bottom, and then trimmed the excess off:

Wasn’t that fun and easy?? I just love it when a seemingly “complicated” card is easy to make and with these instructions you can make two cards at once!

Broadway Bound One Sheet Wonder-Part 3

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are another “one sheet wonder” from a 12” x 12” Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper! If you’ve been following along, the previous two posts feature cards made from layouts on Pinterest, but today I made my own layout. I tried looking for something that had a combination of vertical and horizontal cuts, along with not very many little cuts, but didn’t find one that I liked, so I figured I would give it a try! It really wasn’t that difficult and I was able to make 8 cards out it!

Below is a picture of the sheet of DSP that I used and the template that I made. Wondering what the template is? Would you believe that it is the cardboard that is from the Foil Sheets?! These are slightly bigger than 12” x 12”, so I mark the cardboard when making the measurements. This can also be cut down to make smaller templates!
