Happy Birthday in Black & White

Happy Birthday with True Love DSP

Today I have another card to share with you. This Happy Birthday in Black & White shows how the DSP does all the work! Thanks to Jo-Anne Rogers (Design With Jo) for sharing her card with me.

Let’s start…

With Basic White Thick Cardstock (#159229) cut 1 piece at 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and score at 4-1/2″, fold and burnish with a Bone Folder. This will be my card base.

The next layer is Basic Black Cardstock (#121045). It has been cut at 5-1/4″ x 4″ and embossed with the Painted Textured Embossing Folder (#154317) and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (#149653). After the embossing is completed, attach it to the card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Note: I suggest using liquid glue for any layer that is embossed because of the indentations made by the embossing folder. Sometimes the “tape runner” won’t be able to grab the indentations successfully.

Now let’s add the DSP (Designer Series Paper)…

This design is from the True Love Designer Series Paper (#154281). The DSP layer is cut at 4″ x 2″ and is attached to a layer of Basic White Cardstock (#159276) cut at 4-1/4″ x 2-1/4″. To add a bit of interest, a length of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon – Whisper White (#151326) was tied around the adjoined layers of paper before they were attached to the card front.

Greeting time now…

Using Memento Black Ink (#132708), choose a greeting message from the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set (#151595) and stamp it on a piece of Basic White Cardstock (#159276). It can be cut at the desired size with a Paper Trimmer or cut with a die from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies (#151690).

To attach it as shown in the picture, I used a Stampin’ Dimensional under the right-hand side and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue under the left-hand side. By doing this, the greeting layer will be level. Hope this makes sense.

Embellishments go on next…

You can add a few or many – I like to use “odd” numbers of whatever embellishments I’m adding! For this card, I used Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets (#147801) – do you see how shiny they are?
