Hope Your Birthday Is A Hit

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to our May Paper Pros challenge. This month our challenge is hosted by me, and I challenged everyone to .....

Back to Basic Shapes - Many of Karen’s die sets contain the name of a basic shape in it .... Oval; Circle; Square & Rectangle etc. Use at least one die set that includes one of those shapes in it’s name for your card.

I decided to create another Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up card using the acetate window on the front. You can find Karen's tutorial on how to create this style of card here.

Here is a quick video to see my card in action.

I have purchased a couple of different record themed stamp and die sets this year and I have had this idea brewing for a little while. Vinyl Records & Record Players have become very popular in recent years.

For the background of my card I used used the large vinyl record stamp from SugarPea Designs Greatest Hits Stamp set, stamping the records using black ink and then stamping the inner section using colors of the rainbow.

For the record player I used the coordinating dies to the stamp set. The rectangle panel included in the Rockin' Rectangle Pop-up die set was too long for the mechanism to work properly turning the rectangle on it's side, so I used Hero Arts Infinity Rounded Rectangle dies putting the card back into the die to make the length a little bit shorter.

I added a sentiment to the left side of the card.

I created a border of smaller records which I added to the side panel on the front of the card.  The easiest way to get these even was to adhere them to a black piece of cardstock the same length as the card, lining up the edge of the records with the edge of the card. I then trimmed around this and added half records to the back to the portion that would be seen through the acetate when the card was opened.

To finish off the card, I added a birthday sentiment.
