Tools For Birthday Greetings!

Tools for Birthday Greetings!

This masculine card was easy to create when I had the Build It Framelits!  The Silver Foil and the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder provide the right amount of “glitz”!  To see how I made this card and some tips I’ve shared, check out my video here.

The card base is Basic Black Cardstock cut at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2” and folded in 1/2 to create standard card size of 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″.

Cut Delightful Dijon Cardstock at 5-1/4″ x 4″, stamp the “Happy Birthday” greeting from That’s the Tag Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and cut it out with a framelit from the Build It Framelits.  This step will save cardstock because the cut out will not be seen!  Attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.

Use Snail Adhesive to attach selected piece of DSP cut at 5″ x 3-3/4″.

Use the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Big Shot to create the design on Silver Foil cut at 5″ x 2″.  Use Fast Fuse Adhesive to attach it to the left side over the DSP.

Use the Build It Framelits, the Big Shot, and the Big Shot Magnetic Platform to cut out the tools from the Silver Foil and the Basic Black Cardstock.  Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to complete the tools.  Attach to the front of the card with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the greeting to the front of the card.

Butterflies on Curvy Keepsake Box

Butterflies in Layers!

Do you ever have a small gift and need a special box to put it in? If so, this one is for you!  One of the gals in the class even found that her small, fluffy toy cat fit inside her completed box!  Needless to say, this box was a hit!!

2017_04_26_16.56.03

You will need 1 sheet of 8-1/2″ x 11″ of Mint Macaron Cardstock – cut this sheet in 1/2 – cut 1 of the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits (retiring on May 31/17) from each half.

You will have enough Mint Macaron Cardstock left over to cut out 1 of the largest butterflies from the Butterfly Thinlits – use Paper Snips to cut down the centre of the butterfly.

You will also have enough Mint Macaron Cardstock to emboss a butterfly from the Papillion Potpourri Stamp Set.  To emboss, make sure that the stamp is clean before stamping the butterfly image with Versamark Ink, sprinkle Silver Embossing Powder over the Versamark Ink and heat with the Heat Tool until it’s melted.  Punch this butterfly out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch (retiring on May 31/17).  Use Paper Snips to cut down the centre of the butterfly.

For contrasting butterflies, use the framelit from the Butterfly Thinlits to cut 1 from Very Vanilla Cardstock.  Use Paper Snips to cut down the centre of the butterfly.

Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to join the 2 Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits that were cut from Mint Macaron Cardstock.

Before folding on the score lines to make the box, stamp your choice of butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set on the outside with Mint Macaron Classic Ink – make sure you know where the top of the box is so you can place the top of the stamp accordingly.  When you use the same colour of ink as the cardstock, you get a softer image – for this project, I really like it this way!

Before folding on the score lines to make the box, use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to attach each half of each butterfly near the slit on the side of the box that will be brought up last.  When the box is closed, it will appear as though the butterflies are whole again!

Fold on the score lines, use the Bone Folder to help curl each side and fold all side up to create the box.
