Happy Birthday Friend

Birthday Friend

Welcome to my blog my friends,

Today I am posting a birthday card that I made for a very special friend since grade school which is a very long time trust me hehehe.  Obviously being December 1st I have done a wintery card

Here is how I created my card.

Step 1  Cut 2 (1 with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back and 1 without adhesive)  Garden Notes Berry Branch from brown cardstock.  Adhere 1 on top of other.  Add berries using Nuvo Crystal Drops Simply White.  Set aside to dry then repeat on the back.

Step 2  Cut 2 Garden Notes Hawthorne from green cardstock and shade.  Using Nuvo Crystal Drops Autmun Red add berries set aide to dry then repeat for back side.  Susan has a good video which can be found here.

Step 3  Form 6″ X 6″ card base. Cut brown cardstock 5-3/4″ X 5-3/4″ using 6th die in Garden Notes Frame It / Stitched Squares cut opening in upper left.  Cut patterned paper to fit opening (ModaScrap Woods used here) adhere to back of opening using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.  Adhere to card front.

Step 4  Cut 2 Garden Notes Galvanized Buckets from white Soft Finish Cardstock that has Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back – adhere together.  Using alcohol markers color and shade.  Add a little pewter Metallic Rub Ons from set 2.  From brown cardstock cut just the center of the handle shade with brown Distress Ink adhere to top of handle.  Add couple pop dots to lower center back of bucket then adhere bucket to card front.  Adhere handle using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 5  Using Garden Notes Whitepine Boughs & Pinecones die set cut a bunch of boughs from green cardstock (I like to cut lots at once as I know I will use them on a project) shade with Distress Ink then pinch up needles to give dimension.  Create 3 small hemlock cones using same set see Susan’s video for this here

Step 6  From black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the back cut 2 each A Way With Words Happy Birthday – Small and Friends using Words 4 – Remember die set.  Adhere duplicates to each other.  Cut s off from friends.  Adhere to card front.

Step 7  Assemble using Kids Choice Glue.

Step 8  To add snow to card I used Designer Dries White Glue with fine tip adding to areas I want to have snow then I sprinkled with Papericious Frosting Powder.

Hoping you have enjoyed this tutorial today and you will make your own card.  This could also be used as a Christmas card by changing the sentiment such as A Way With Words small Merry Christmas.

Hello my crafty friends welcome to my blog!

Today I have an anniversary card which I made for my hubby to celebrate our 49th anniversary.   For this card I combined using dies as well as old school of stamping and fussy cutting for my main image.

Here is how it was created.

Step 1  From white Soft Finish Cardstock cut heart using Els van de Burgt Studio Stitched Hearts – 4th largest die.  Using Susan’s Garden Notes Earth & Sky Stencil and PanPastels Set 2 blue for sky green for grass.

Step 2  Using black ink stamped couple on bench twice onto white Soft Finish Cardstock.  Using alcohol markers color both images then fussy cut both.  Kids Choice Glue adhere 1 image to heart.

Step 3  Using clear Nuvo Crystal Drops add raindrops to heart and umbrella of second image.  Set aside to dry.

Step 4  Form 6″ X 6″ tent fold card base.  Emboss front of card with embossing folder of your choice.

Step 5  For inside of card cut white cardstock 5-3/4″ X 11-3/4″ score in half.  Using Garden Notes Earth & Sky Stencil along with Garden Notes PanPastels Set 2 add clouds and grass.

Step 6  Cut Pop Up in center lining up in center fold using largest die in Elizabeth Craft Designs General Pop Up die set.  Work folds in pop ups.  Add Clear Double Sided Adhesive to back staying away from the pop ups.  Adhere to inside of card lining up the creases and edges.  NOTE:  work 1 side at a time removing protective covering from adhesive.

Step 7  From black cardstock cut 2 ( 1) piece with Clear Double Sided Adhesive and (1) without adhesive Happy Anniversary from Suzanne Cannon Happy Anniversary die set.  Adhere one with adhesive on back to top of one without adhesive.  Cut very narrow strips of clear plastic adhere to back of words using Kids Choice Glue on anniversary add narrow plastic vertical strip back side centered (this will give you something to use to adhere to pop up) adhere to front pop up using Kids Choice Glue.  Adhere happy using Kids Choice Glue to top pop up.

Step 8  Cut 2 –  49th from black cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on back adhere one on top of other then adhere to card at base of pop up.

Step 9  Once raindrops are dry on second image add dimensional tape to back adhere directly over first image on heart.

Step 10  Adhere heart to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Step 11  Using black ink stamp sentiment on 3/4″ X 1-3/4″ white Soft Finish Cardstock then adhere  to black cardstock cut 1″ X 2″.  Using dimensional tape on back adhere to lower right of card front.
