DSP for a great Happy Birthday greeting card

DSP for a great Happy Birthday greeting card

When you have the Gold Foil-Edged Cards with Envelopes, all you need to add is DSP for a great Happy Birthday greeting card!  And when you use this technique you can get a LOT made in a short time!

  1. Cut DSP at 5″ x 3-3/4″ – use Snail Adhesive to attach to the front of the Gold Foil Edged card.
  2. Use the Happy Birthday framelit and Big Shot to cut greeting from Mossy Meadow cardstock.
  3. Use Liquid Mono Glue to adhere the greeting to the front of the DSP.  Put small drops of the liquid glue on the back of the greeting. When it dries to a clear colour, it will adhere like a glue dot.
  4. This would also be a perfect place to place a piece of adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock before cutting out the greeting.

This is a list of the products used:

Now you can see the same card base and envelope using a different DSP design.  I think both are beautiful and am looking forward to sending them to my friends for their birthdays!!

And here is one that’s a bit darker but looks equally beautiful with the Happy Birthday cut out of Whisper White cardstock!

Today’s share combines the woodsy stamp set, Rooted In Nature, with the woodsy Designer Series Paper, Wood Textures, to create a quick & easy greeting card!  By letting Stampin’ Up! supply the coordinating products, you’ll find that no matter what you choose for colour and/or designs, everything will look great together!  I can see myself using this greeting for a Birthday Card, a Thinking of You Card, a Card of Encouragement or a Congratulations Card!  Do you have any other suggestions?
