Happy Birthday To Me!


Hi everyone,

Seeing it is my birthday today I decided I needed to post a birthday card on my blog :)

Once a month I attend a stamp club with a group of friends and this month we got to create the base of this card thanks for our project coordinator Jackie!  When I got home I pulled out a few of my Elizabeth Craft Designs dies to decorate my card.

I am not sure what the name of this style of card is,  it is a little like a tri shutter card.

To decorate my card I used the Cupcake with Candle and Bow die. I die cut this from black card placed it onto some double sided adhesive paper which was also mounted to some white card. And then I applied some Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter to the adhesive and colored in the cupcake using copic markers.

For the Happy Birthday I die cut the “Happy Birthday” word five times and layered these up together and then adhered this to the large panel on the left side.


As you can see, the large panel on the left opens up so you can add a sentiment or personal message here. I added a birthday sentiment from Verses.


On the small side return panels I added a flower using Elizabeth Craft Designs Flower Set 1.
Here are the products I used to create my card:

Stamps: Another Candle Sentiment – Verses
Paper: White; Green; Blue; Secret Admirer DP – Kaisercraft
Dies: Cupcake with Candle & Bow; Flower Set 1; Happy Birthday – Elizabeth Craft Designs
Other: Black Ink; ECD Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter; ECD Double Sided Adhesive Paper; Ribbon; Foam Tape; Copics
