Another week gone as February seems to be whooshing by. I hope this post finds you well and in the mood to create. I decided to use the Number of Years Photopolymer Bundle today which comes with the Number of Years Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, which are fantastic for this type of card.
I made 2 similar cards while I was at it. When I have my Big Shot out I like to cut a few things out at the same time and I store any spares in a plastic envelope for use at a later date. It also enabled me to stamp on the two ovals and the insides of the cards for 2 cards, at the same time.
- Cut A4 Whisper White card in half giving you 2 card bases
- Cut a piece of Card 10cm x 14.3cm and adhere to the centre of the card front
- cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 9.5cm x 13.8cm and adhere to the centre of the card layer
- Using your Big Shot, cut an oval from card stock of desired colour – I used the framelit 3rd from left
- Using your Big Shot and Large Number Framelit Dies with card of desired colour, cut out required numbers
- Using the Flower from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and scrap card punch out 3 ‘green’ and 3 coloured flowers. Layer these together with Glue Dots – Green as base and a coloured flower on top, then add a small Pearl to the centre of each flower
- Using scrap card and the Balloon from Party Punch Pack, punch out 1 Balloon
- Using the Number of Years stamp set and the sentiment ‘Look Who’s Turning’ on an acrylic block, ink it up and stamp towards the top of the oval ensuring the sentiment is centred with the top centre of the oval.
- Using the ‘leafy’ image from the stamp set, ink it up with your chosen colour and stamp in a couple of places towards bottom left and right of oval. The image will not be wholly stamped so have scrap or grid paper underneath your work surface to catch the spare stamping.
- Using Glue Dots place your flowers
- Adhere the numerals using Liquid Multipurpose Glue (Tombow)
- Place a Stampin’ Dimensional at the top, bottom and both sides of your oval and adhere to the front in the centre of the card
- Ink up the tiny flower in 2 different colours and stamp the inside of the card and the front and back of the envelope.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share …
