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.
