Today, I’m sharing a miniature birthday card that I made using Dreamerland Crafts stamps called Meow Meow 01 – D20013 for the main image and for the sentiments Birthday 07 – DCS17058 and Birthday 08 – DCS17059. I always wanted to try this type of miniature card! I just love the way you get the 3-D effect when you open the card. So much fun. LOL!
Inside the card:
To make this card I used Lawn Fawn – Centre Picture Window Card to create the base card out of Hot Pink cardstock. The same dies were also used to create the centre pieces and banner using Your Next Stamp Designer Paper Pad – Birthday Girl. The same paper was also used to create the background on the card, front panel and side panels using Lawn Fawn – Centre Picture Window Card Add-On dies. Your Next Stamp – Mini Balloon Trio Die Set was used to die cut the floating balloons and then I tied some black thread to the base of the balloons. I cut 3 small pieces of clear plastic about a 1/4″ wide and attached the double-sided tape to the back of the balloon and at the base of the plastic as well to be used later.
Using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the image onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and also the sentiments onto the patterned pieces. I coloured the image in with Copic markers and then fussy cut around it.
I assembled the card using double-sided tape for each of the panels and centre pieces. I attached the balloons by putting 2 behind the presents and 1 from the top centre piece. Lastly, I added a little bit of double-sided tape to the bottom of the coloured image and attached it to the front of the main centre piece. For the sentiment on the front panel, I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Fossilized Amber and then popped it up using 3M VHB – 2 sided tape. I added 2 balloons and used a black marker to create the tails for the balloons.
