Detailed With Love Birthday Card



This is such a quick masculine card! I cut the layers using Broadway Bound paper layered on basic black card stock.

The dotted layer is 4 x 51/4. The striped layer is 4 x 23/4. The candle layer is 31/2 x 21/4. I cut the black layers 1/4 inch larger.

I wrapped black twine around the whole thing before taping it to the black card base.

I stamped Happy Birthday and the scrolly things in black on whisper white and punched it out using a 13/4 circle punch. It is mounted on a black 17/8 circle from the circle dies and a 2 inch gold foil circle using a punch.

The inside has a 3/4 inch strip of back card stock with a smaller 1/4 inch strip of paper from Broadway Bound mounted on it. The words are stamped in black and came from a retired set with a black scrolly thing stamped above it.

Colorful Seasons




I used Brusho on watercolor paper to make the colorful leaves on this card. On dry watercolor paper, sprinkle the paint powder. I used every color. Then with a spray bottle, spray water until you get the effect you want. Use a paper towel and blot up any puddles. Use a heat gun to set the colors. It looks ugly but it makes gorgeous leaves! I cut three out for each card. Hint: cut your watercolor paper narrow enough to fit through your Big Shot so you can get many out of one sheet.

The leaves on the front are taped on to white full leaves so they can be popped up using dimensionals. The top leaf is cut from the copper foil paper. The inside leaf is taped directly to the white card stock.

The little dots are punched from copper foil paper using a 1/8 hole punch. Punch these out of the Pretty Label Punch copper die cut before you mount the word on it.

The words are stamped in old olive and cut using an oval from the oval dies and mounted on a copper cut using the Pretty Label Punch. Put it on the embossed card front using dimensionals.

The thin line under the leaf on the inside is a strip of copper paper 1/4 inch thick.

Broadway Birthday Card and Box


Using the Broadway Bound Suite coordinating products make card making so easy! Everything matches. No guess work!

This card is a regular a2 card base, fold on top. The birthday candle piece is cut at 4 1/2 x 2 1/2, the black card stock under it is 4 3/4 x 2 3/4. The gold foil under that is 5 x 3. I cut WISH and the 2 candle flames out of it before I assembled the card to save paper. It also helps to make the card lighter for mailing. Make A is stamped in black ink. WISH is stamped in versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. The whisper white piece is 3 1/2 x 1 1/4. It is tied with black shimmer ribbon and mounted on black card stock 3 3/4 x 1 1/2.

The box is cut from black card stock, 11 x 7. The long side is scored at 1,3,6, and 8 inches. The short side is scored at 2 and 5 inches. See photo below. After you fold on all the score lines cut the long side lines up the the short side lines. The skinny part is the box lid that folds down. I did cut down some of the flaps by 1 inch. Look at the picture to see where. I also cut the lid at an angle once taped to help it shut easier. These lines are on the template as well. Use tear tape to hold the box together. I cut the birthday candle paper and mounted it on whisper white card stock to fit the front and sides of the box and flaps.

The top of the box decorations are held up using a small piece of a window sheet cut at 2 x 1 1/4 and scored at 1/2 for WISH and 1 x 1 1/4 and scored at 1/2 for MAKE A. The scored flaps are taped onto the lid then covered with a small piece of black card stock. The window sheet helps the pieces stay standing instead of being limp and flopping over. I cut the candles out of the designer paper and glued on the flames cut from gold foil paper (thinlet). The dot on the i is attached with a tiny piece of window sheet to make it appear like it is floating.
