Happy Birthday to You

Hello there!

Today I am sharing a birthday card following the sketch from Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch.

Here is how I’ve used the sketch…

  1. Create a top-fold A2 card base.
  2. Trim three blocks from Summer Splash card stock & Party patterned papers. Adhere them to the card base to fit the sketch.
  3. Stamp the sentiment with black ink on the top block and stamp the banner with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink on the bottom.
  4. Stamp and color the cupcake with Copic markers, then cut it fussily.
  5. Decorate the cupcake with glossy accent & Nuvo Crystal drops.
  6. Adhere the cupcake to the front panel with foam tapes.

I am Totally Grateful

Hello there!

Since it’s the last week of the semester, I need some cards for my girls’ teachers. I used the sketch from Freshly Made Skeches to create a Thank You Card.

Here is how I’ve used the sketch…

  1. Creat a top-fold card base.
  2. Blend Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on the left & right edge of the card base.
  3. Cut two strips from patterned paper. Adhere them to the card base beside the blended area.
  4. Blend Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on watercolor paper.
  5. Die cut the roses from the distress blended paper and silver sparkle card stock.
  6. Stamp the sentiment with Versa Mark on black card stock and heat emboss with Cactus Flower embossing powder.
  7. Layer the roses & the sentiment on the card base.

Hello there!

I’ve been lazy for a few days due to a cold wave in Taiwan. When I saw the sketch from My Favorite Things, I had an idea to create a flop birthday card for a lucky girl.

Here is how I used the sketch…

  1. Create a side-fold A2 card base with Bubble Gum card stock.
  2. Position flop card die (one of my new goodies) on A2 card base and die cut. Score a valley fold along the line that die provides.
  3. Die cut square panel from watercolor paper and blend Distress Worm Lipstick Oxide Ink with mini cloud stencil.
  4. Stamp, die cut and color images with Copic markers.
  5. Mat square panel with the card base and adhere to card front.
  6. Layer and adhere the images.
  7. Repeat steps 3, 4, 5 and 6 with a rectangle die to create the interior scene. Stamp sentiment on the rectangle panel with black ink.

Wishing You a Wild Birthday

Hello there!

Have I mentioned that my hubby started writing birthday cards to his students this summer?

My hubby put  cards on the desks of the students on their birthdays. When they stepped into the classroom, took the card out of the envelope and read the words, most of them cried with tears. 

Sending love and comfort is the most important reason I make cards.

After finishing forty holiday cards, it’s time to be back with birthday cards.

  1. The pony and the alligator were colored with Copic markers and were die cut.
  2. White card stock was trimmed into 4″ x 5.25″as front panel.
  3. Two circles were die cut partially at the corners from the front panel.
  4. Distress Oxide inks were applied on A2 card base for the opening round space.
  5. All the pieces were layered on A2 card base with double sided tapes and foam tapes to fit the sketch.
