Birthday Hugs Card

I don’t buy too much Stampin Up! products,but when I do – I usually get a few extra goodies from my demonstrator….last time I got the Shine On double sided DSP with some matching cardstock in a kit and I held on to most of the papers for a long time until I got a good enough idea for a card…I have a bad habit of saving( read hoarding) the ‘good’ papers – which I’m trying to change…. 🙂
The card base is plain white and the top layer is the plain aqua green which I die cut using the stitched rectangle dies…the top layer is a Kraft base with silver foil print…I die cut that panel using a smaller one of the rectangle die….
Once all the layers were in place,I die cut the word ‘hugs’ a few times using the same blue cardstock as the middle panel and white glitter cardstock as well and layered them up before placing onto the card….then I cut two silver banners and stamped the sentiments on it and adhered them above and below the die cut word to create a full message…
Finally I die cut a few heart shaped balloons from red glitter cardstock to decorate the card…
Cheers to breaking bad habits… 🙂

Post#143 Birthday Hugs Shaker Card

After trying out this shaker card technique a couple of times with circle frame dies,I wanted to try creating a shaker card with a large heart frame….

The card base is plain orange with a silver first layer and an orange top layer…two sides of all these layers have been rounded with a punch…

To create the main heart frame,I used the two largest Kaisercraft nesting hearts dies….but since I needed to die cut more heart shapes in the same size,I used Washi tape to keep the dies together….this way all the frames were exactly the same shape…there are seven frames cut from white cardstock and stuck together to create a well to house the shaker elements..

Inside the frame,I have adhered the die cut word ‘hugs’ from glitter cardstock and stamped the words ‘sending birthday’ above it…and then all that was required was to add a bit of sequins for the shaker….

There is an acetate layer glued on top to close the shaker….and the topmost heart frame has been cut out of glitter cardstock….

I really like this bright  and glittery card…hope you do too…
