Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This is a great time of year to build your stash of handmade birthday cards, so we are sharing birthday-themed projects with you today. We are excited to share our creations and hope you love them! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Here’s my Artfully Layered birthday card:
This DSP (designer series paper) has quickly become one of my go-to set of papers. The colors are spectacular! Take a look:
I used two of the patterns for my blog hop birthday card.
The landscape layout of the card was inspired by the Sunday Stamps challenge, SSC276, sketch for this week.
- The Old Olive base measures 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches, scored at 5-1/2 inches.
- In order to stay in line with the sketch while adding texture, I added a layer of Old Olive cardstock. Since the Bark 3D embossing folder will leave such a deep imprint, I didn’t trim the cardstock to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches until after I embossed it.
- Next, I trimmed two pieces of the DSP for the slanted pieces of the card. Each piece measures ————
- While I had the DSP handy, I trimmed a piece to 6 inches by 2-1/2inches for the envelope flap.
- The white cardstock panel on the inside measures 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
- I used a scrap piece of white cardstock for the sentiment tag.
- After embossing the Old Olive layer, I popped it up on dimensionals and adhered it to the base.
- Next, I placed each layer of DSP on opposite slants and adhered them with multipurpose glue.
- Using the Biggest Wish stamp set, I stamped “happy” using Mango Melody and then “birthday” using Just Jade. Mango Melody is part of the background design on the DSP.
- Then I cropped out the sentiment using the second largest die from the Tailor-Made die set.
- Since there are Evening Evergreen leafy branches in the DSP, I used the Evening Evergreen open weave ribbon for the tag accessory.
- The sentiment tag is popped up on dimensionals and then I adhered it to the front of the card.
- Now, all I needed to do was stamp the sentiment on the inside and adhere it to the inside of the card using multipurpose glue.
- Finally, I trimmed the DSP on the envelope flap, punched the seal and ran it through the XYRON create-a-sticker. With that, I’d finished this coordinated card, envelope, and seal set.
