Hello! Welcome! Samantha here –– January marks my birthday month! So I thought it fitting to create a fun, bright birthday card using a few of my favourite Elizabeth Craft Designs smaller dies.
Step 1: Cut pink card stock to fit an A6 card base. (Measurements: 114mm x 162mm)
Step 2: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Fitted Rounded Square die.
Step 3: Die cut 6 squares (from pattern paper and cardstock) using the smallest Stitched Rounded Square die.
Step 4: Using pattern paper and cardstock die cut the small cupcakes 6x.
Step 5: Assemble all the die cut pieces as shown below. Mix and match the pattern paper and cardstock as desired.
Step 6: Adhere the assembled die-cuts to your card front. Stamp the sentiment using black ink.
Step 7: Adhere Clear Double Sided adhesive to pink cardstock. Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Silver). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.
Step 8: Die cut the small hearts, and adhere these to the cupcakes on your card front. Embellish the card with enamel dots and a twine bow.
(Optional: Add machine stitched details.)
Step 9: Adhere card front to an A6 card base.
I hope you enjoyed today’s fun card tutorial showing you how I like to use smaller dies. Cupcakes are the best! I certainly will be having a few real ones one my birthday to go along side my cupcake greeting card.
