A Way with Words – Happy Birthday Collection

“Our birthdays are feathers…”

March 31, 2018

Hello Crafty Friends.

Recently a very good friend of mine celebrated her birthday and I wanted to create a card that was bright, beautiful and inspiring.  The quote “Our birthdays are feathers…” in Suzanne Cannon’s Happy Birthday Collection stamp set was perfect for the card front!

Instructions:

  1. Create a top-fold card base from black cardstock.
  2. Die cut patterned paper using the Stitched Rectangles die that closely fits the card base while leaving a narrow border.
  3. Die cut corners from blue patterned paper.
  4. Stamp quote onto white cardstock using black ink.  Stamp balloons using colors to coordinate with patterned paper.  Die cut using Stitched Rectangles die.
  5. Cut black cardstock to mat stamped quote.  Mount onto patterned paper.
  6. Mount corners onto mat stack using liquid adhesive, folding and gluing the tabs to the back of the patterned paper. (Alternatively, trim off the tabs.) Mount to card front.
  7. Create triple bow using coordinating ribbon and mount to card front using liquid adhesive or instead of wet glue use small snippets of a Tombow Xtreme Adhesive Tab.

The card came together rather quickly and the results were bold and beautiful.  My friend loved it!

Thank you for stopping by.  I do hope you enjoyed the birthday card!

Have a happy, crafty day,

Kathy Jo
