Birthday Week-Day 1

Hello, crafty friends. If you’re like me, you never have enough birthday cards on hand. I decided to make a bunch using THIS new release and share them all week long. Let’s kick off this party with two cards that feature a sentiment background…

I like using multiple sentiments to create a text background. I laid out lots of birthday sentiments from THIS and THIS stamp set on a panel inside my MISTI. I white heat embossed the sentiments so I could apply a variety of Distress Inks on top.

I decided to use different color combos than what I normally do. I decided to try some complimentary colors this time.

I also did some partial die-cutting. I stamped the cake image and coordinating sentiment on a strip of white card stock. I used THIS coordinating die to partially die-cut only the top of the cake image to keep the bottom connected to the strip. I adhered it with foam adhesive for some dimension.

I hope this inspires you to create a sentiment background, try some partial die-cutting, or add a complementary color combo to your next project.

Thank you for visiting. I’ll be back tomorrow with another birthday card idea.
