Stampin' Up Picture Perfect Birthday Card

Yesterday I posted a card I made as part of the #stampingforall Design Team. Today I am sharing the video tutorial of this card. In the original post I give all the measurements of the card. But below is the YouTube tutorial if you would like to click and have a watch.



I am loving being part of a design team and I hope you are enjoying the projects I am bringing you.

You can take a look at the original post that includes pictures of cards made by other members of the group. To view the original post click here!


Measurements

To make this card I cut the layers as below - these are my standard way of cutting layers and they give 1/8th border all round.
  • I used some Berry Burst as my base - A4 cut in half and scored in half, this makes a C6 card 5 7/8th x 4 1/8th
  • I cut a mat in Whisper White card stock just 1/4" smaller on each side - 5 5/8th x 3 7/8th
  • I used a scrap of Whisper White for the sentiment that was cut out using the 2" Circle Punch
  • I used a scrap of Berry Burst to cut a mat using the Starburst Punch. 
  • I used a small scrap of Flirty Flamingo 1x 3 7/8
  • I used a length of Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon


Stamping

  • I mounted the candle stamps onto an acrylic blog using my grid pad
  • I allowed 2 squares between each candle so that I could stamp the 3 different candles in one go in one colour Berry Burst.
  • I then repeated in the second colour Flirty Flamingo. 
  • I then lined the candles up at the base of the Whisper White layer leaving a small gap at the bottom edge
  • I stamped the candle flames in Daffodil Delight
  • I then used the 2 different confetti stamp and stamps all over in on in Berry Burst and then with the other in Flirty Flamingo.
  • I then stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst.

Assembling the card

  • I cut the sentiment out with the 2" Circle Punch 
  • I punch out a Starburst in Berry Burst using the Starburst Punch
  • These were then stuck together
  • I trimmed a 1/4" off the bottom of the card layer so the candles were all neat
  • I then stuck the Flirty Flamingo scrap to the bottom of the card 
  • I then added the ribbon to the stamped card layer
  • Used dimensionals to pop up the sentiment
  • Stuck the layer to the card black allowing the scrap of Flirty Flaming to show at the bottom. 



I also made the card in Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist.


I hope you like this project and enjoyed the tutorial, I will be back again soon with more projects fro the new Spring Summer Catalogue. Bye for now
