It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a birthday card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps Chi Chi’s Party – TDG037 for the image and Happy Birthday – FDG027. This is just one of the new re-releases from our “Let’s Celebrate” previously retired stamps at High Hopes Rubber Stamps during the month of June. You should pop on over and take a peek at the other new re-releases too.
To make my card this week, I began with a card base of Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock, cut and scored to be 5.5″ x 4.25″. I cut Paper Pizazz – Hearts, Coils, Stars designer paper to be the same size as the base and adhered it with double-sided tape. Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Chipped Sapphire was used to ink around all of the edges of the card. Using the Anna Griffin Empress Mini, I die-cut the rectangle using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies. The image and sentiment were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card and I coloured in the image and the small balloon on the sentiment with Copic Markers. I added Wink of Stella – Clear to the yellow on the cupcake, hat and ribbons to make them sparkle. U-Line double sided tape was added to the backs of the image and sentiment and they were both popped up onto the patterned base card. Lastly, to finish the card off, I popped a red balloon over top of the balloon on the main image and then an additional 2 balloons for embellishments using Creative Impressions – Metallic Balloon Brads using 2 layers of U-Line double-sided tape.
