'Make a Wish' and 'Shout Out' from the SEI 'Happy Day' range. A lovely feature of these papers is the lovely gloss varnish accents that highlight the main pattern elements.
I used a pink Kaiser card as a base. I then cut the 'Shout Out' paper, matted it onto orange cardstock and sewed around the edge with some pink thread.
To create some dimensional interest to the card I made a banner by folding a strip of the 'Shout Out' paper over itself several times and cut out 'v' shapes from the ends.
I attached the folded strip to the bottom of the card.
I cut out one of the larger cupcakes from the 'Make a Wish' paper and matted it onto some orange and pink cardstock then attached it onto the left-hand side of the folded strip.
For the title, I decided to use embossing to create the sentiment (mainly because I wanted to try out my new heat gun - which just happens to be on special for August).
So I stamped my sentiment using an old stamp (I've had in my stash for ages) with VersaMark ink...
sprinkled over some white embossing powder, then...
used the heat gun to melt the powder (sooo much easier than holding it over the toaster, lol).
I then cut out around the sentiment and used foam squares to raise it up a bit.
I decided to add some extra elements to the card to jazz it up a bit so I added some orange sequin trim, a few buttons tied with paper string and some staples.
thanks heaps for this nic... a gorgeous card
have a wonderful day everyone
