Upbeet Birthday

January 21, 2017

My mother in law needed a birthday card for a close friend. Here is the card I came up with. I LOVE this card.



Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started with some yellow card stock that I die cut with a large cross stitched rectangle. Then, I used a stitched line border to create rays on my panel. Using some Post It Tape, I masked off every other ray and stamped some stars. I used three different shades of yellow Distress Inks. Once all the rays were stamped, I added some ink blending to the center point.

Next, I die cut a small stitched circle from some water color paper. I ink smooshed some blue Distress Ink on the circle. While that was drying, I looked through my box of pre-colored and cut images. I found this beet image and couldn’t wait to use it. I glued it right on the inked circle.

For the sentiment, I die cut a small black banner and used white embossing powder. I adhered the banner flat to the yellow panel and then layered the circle on top with some fun foam. Lastly, I adhered the yellow panel to a card base.
