Happy Tuesday!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you! This technique is beautiful and uses up your scraps! Woot Woot!!! Also, don’t forget that Mother’s Day is only 2 weeks away!
I am loving this card even though I am usually a silver girl but gold and pink are amazing together!!! Mother’s Day is right around the corner and this card is perfect because you can make a Happy Birthday Card and then use the negative of the Happy for your Mother’s Day Card! So let’s get started!!!
You will start off with a card base of Blushing Bride measuring 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″! Then taking a piece of Gold Glimmer Paper measuring 4-1/2″ x 2″, run that through the Big Shot with the Happy Thinlit from the Hello You Thinlits. NOTE: You can bundle and save 15% when you purchase the Hello You Thinlits and Crazy About You Stamp Set! Woot Woot. I have found that the best way to have these Thinlits pop out of the die super easy is to place an un-used dryer sheet onto your Standard Cutting Pad (clear pads), then place the Glimmer Paper, then the Thinlit, and then the top Standard Cutting Pad. By doing this, the dryer sheet pulls that Happy right out of there super easy! Thank you one of my stampers for that trick. I was always doing it with a used dryer sheet in between the Thinlit and Gold Glimmer Paper. That works too but it is so much better underneath! For this card, you will be using the negative of the Happy but be sure to save the Happy for another project. You can save all of those little centers of the letter to adhere in or you can toss them OR you can use some of them as candle flames!!!! See there is a way to use all of your scraps. You will layer the Gold Glimmer Paper onto a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-1/2″ x 5″. You can either do it straight or you can tilt it to one side. Below the Happy, I stamped Mother’s Day from the Crazy About You Stamp Set in Blushing Bride. Now you can adhere this to your card front. I tilted mine for a different look! I really like it!!!
To finish it off, I punched a few flowers in Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette with the Petite Petals Punch and the flower from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. I brushed the edges with my Sponge Daubers. LOVE THEM! I added those to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals and put a Pearl in the center!
Here is a sneak peak at the coordinating card which uses the Happy wording….check back next week for that tutorial!
