Technique Tuesday – Creating a Drop Shadow Greeting!!!

Happy Tuesday!!! You know that means I have a fabulous technique for you today and that is creating a drop shadow greeting!!! There are so many color combinations that you could do for this card. I love it!!!

Creating a Drop Shadow Greeting,

This is a perfect Man Card and we all know I struggle with those since I love PINK! I am also loving this Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist color combination too! Perfect!!!

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base. Then I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 4-1/4″ to use for the greeting. Using the Happy Birthday Framelit, I die cut the greeting in Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist. For adhering them onto the Whisper White, there is always the Fine Tip Glue Pen! If you find that hard to use, try out this technique. I use a Silicone Craft Mat, Sponge, and Multi Purpose Liquid Glue. Just pounce in the glue a bit and then all over the die cut image. This gives the perfect amount and nice even coverage. First, I laid down the Lemon Lime Twist greeting. Second, I added the Night of Navy greeting just a smidge down and over from the other one. This gives that drop shadow look! Be sure your greeting is up high on the cardstock so that the rest of the design doesn’t cover it.

Layered Birthday,

Now to assemble the card! I took a piece of Night of Navy (2″ x 4″) and ran it through the Big Shot in the Oh My Stars Embossing Folder. Next, I adhered this to the lower portion of the white piece, making sure it was the correct size for my card front. Then I placed a strip of Finely Woven Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist across the cardstock where they meet together. I added this piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals! For the mini greeting, I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%). I punched the greeting out with the Classic Label Punch and added it to the card with Mini Stampin Dimensionals! I just love it!

  1. I really like this color with the Night of Navy. This sure did take a long time for it to grow on me. A whole year to be exact.

    Should the White CS be the same width as the Night of Navy.. 4 x 4?

    I am going to look for the other BD ideas that I think you mentioned that you made with the thinlit die.

    • I love Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist together as well. Great color combo.
      The Whisper White measures 4″ x 4-1/4″ (up top piece with the die cuts on it).
      The Night of Navy embossed piece at the bottom measures 2″ x 4″.
      Let me know if you have any other questions! ~Laura

  2. PS, I am really excited to try placing glue on the back of my die cuts like you did in the video. It is always so messy doing the cuts my way.

    Thank you for such a useful tip!

  3. Beautiful card, love those 2 colors. May I suggest using the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets on the Happy Birthday die, it works real well. I was sad to see that it is retiring.

    • Yes, those would be perfect for the die cut. I always forget about using those. I do have lots of customers who are also really sad about those retiring too! ~Laura
