Birthday Wishes!!


Today, I’m sharing a birthday card that I made using Polkadoodles stamp called Winnie – Birthday Tree for my sister-in-law.

To create this card I began by making a base of 5″ x 5″ using Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock. I applied a combination of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Ink – Worn Lipstick and Festive Berries around the edges of the card with blending brushes. I imported the image into Microsoft Word and then printed it out using High Quality Grayscale onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock.

With my Cuttlebug, I die-cut the image and Hot Buy Craft Smart – Holiday Glitz Glitter Paper using Whimsy – Wavy Stitched Squares Die Set. U-Line double-sided tape was attached to the larger die-cut and it was popped up onto the centre of the card. I coloured in the image using Copic markers and then added Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff to the snow on the bottom. A Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool was used to puff up the liquid. Stickles – Diamond was added to the snow in between and in some areas on top of the Fluffy stuff. With a UNIPosca PC-3M White marker, I created the snow in the sky. Once the Stickles dried, I popped up the coloured image layer to the card using U-Line double-sided tape as well. YNS Gumdrops – Sparkly Enchanted Garden were added to the centre of the snowflakes to finish off the card.
