Birthday Cards Using Acetate

It’s been a very long time since I’ve been planning to try out acetate cards…went through quite a few tutorials by card makers who shared great tips and techniques and felt I should give it a try…so I made two cards…the first one has an acetate panel in the front and the second one has a clear acetate front..


I have used kraft cardstock for my first card….I created a section to place the acetate and then adhered it to the card…I stamped  one sentiment on the card front and another one inside which can been seen through the acetate panel…

On a separate piece of cardstock I stamped three candles and cut them out and placed them on the card…I have also used glossy accents on the flames of these candles for a bit of shine…
To embellish this card I have wrapped a bit of gold string on the front and adhered some punched out tiny circles that seem like confetti which I have added on the inside of this card so they can be seen through the acetate panel…

My second card has a full acetate front panel…I cut the acetate about half an inch longer than the card front so that once I scored it to size,I would be able to adhere the cardstock I used for the card back to it..

I stamped the little boy holding the large balloon and the sentiment on the panel using Stazon jet black ink…I don’t know if any other ink works on acetate but I know for sure that this one does…

Using Spectrum Noir markers I coloured in the images…you can see on the balloon that it didn’t work too well but it was ok on the small image…

I added a few silver star sequins to embellish this card…

Pop – Up Birthday Card

I am very excited to share my card today…..after trying out my first pop up card just a few weeks ago,I wanted to make a bright and colourful birthday pop-up card…I have used a lot of colours in the card,on the inside,so I wanted to keep the front/outside simple…
I have used a plain white card base…there are no layers on the front as I was going to add a full layer on the inside for the pop-ups and I didn’t want the card to be too bulky…
For the front on the card I die cut the words ‘make a wish’ using white as well as red cardstock,glued them together and stuck them to the card…I then coloured in a small piece of cardstock using distress inks and the die cut 4 candles and placed them on the card too…to embellish the card I have used colourful sequins…
For the inside of the card I cut out a white insert slightly smaller the the card and scored it in the middle…I then sponged in various distress inks to cover the insert….I also sprinkled a bit of water for effect…
I decided to create a party scene with three kids where one is holding a bunch of balloons and the other two are holding a banner…..I coloured in and cut our all these,ready to be attached to the card…I stamped the sentiments with black ink and then using the MFT Die-namics pop up elements dies I created the three pop up sections and adhered all pieces to them…finally I adhered the insert to the card base…

Colourful Chevron Birthday Card

After watching a tutorial by Jennifer McGuire,I have been quite inspired to use stencils and inks a lot more to create unique backgrounds for my cards…
The card base is made using plain pink textured cardstock and the top layer is plain white….I first covered the top layer with iced spruce distress ink and then used a chevron stencil and a lot of brightly coloured distress inks to print the pattern onto the top layer…
I die cut the word happy using the same cardstock as the card base and stamped the word birthday onto blue foil card stock and placed the sentiment on the top layer….
On a separate piece of cardstock,I stamped,coloured in and cut out the image of the little girl and placed it near the base of the top layer…I have used blue sequins to embellish the card…
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my card….Have lovely & blessed day ahead…!!

Cutie & Cupcake Birthday Card

I had planned today’s card as a tag but I decided to make it into a card…..and the best thing about small cards is that they can also be used as gift tags as well…..
I have used Kraft cardstock for the card base and die cut it using the largest of the labels one die by Spellbinders making sure that I leave a small section uncut so that the card front is still attached to the back…
I then used the smaller two dies to create layers…..the middle layers is die cut from gold glitter cardstock and the top layer from Kraft cardstock which I have embossed using the seeing spots embossing folder….
On a separate piece of card stock I stamped,coloured in and cut out the cupcake and little boy image and placed them on the card…I then stamped the sentiment on a small gold banner and placed it on the cupcake….finally I added a few tiny colourful rhinestones to decorate the card…
Thanks for visiting…Have a great day ahead….Happy crafting..!!

Birthday Wishes Card

Today I’m sharing another bright and colourful birthday card….I have used abandoned coral distress ink to create the background for this card using the smoosh watercolour technique…
For this technique I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using the stitched rectangle die and then chose an acetate sheet approximately the same size and dabbed on some distress ink directly from the inkpad…I spritzed some water on the acetate sheet and quickly transferred the watery ink onto the watercolor paper..
Once the ink was dry,I stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using gold embossing powder…I then adhered the top layer to a peach coloured card base….
I die cut a few leaves and sponged them with yellow and green shades of distress inks…I also stamped and coloured in an image of little girl using a gorjuss mini stamp and cut it out….I have used mama elephant confetti die and gold foil cardstock to die cut a few sequins as well…
Once everything was ready,I started adding then to the top layer…I started with a gold string and then placed the leaves before adding the little girl image on top….finally I added a few sequins to decorate the card…

Many Happy Thoughts Card

Today I’m sharing yet another card made using Mama Elephant stamp set….I loved these stamps so much,I couldn’t stop using them…and my colouring in wasn’t too bad this time so it made the results even more exciting…
The card base is plain and I think the colour is kind of deep peach-ish red…I did not use any top layer in this card….The sentiment is stamped on a silver banner with another silver glitter cardstock banner layered underneath….
The main images were stamped,coloured and cut out and placed on a rectangular printed die cut….but when I die cut that rectangle,I realised that the leftover piece looked like a Polaroid frame and because it was double sided paper,I simply flipped it and added it around the rectangle….
I have used clear sequins to decorate the card…
Hope you liked the card….and my super idea of creating a Polaroid frame from the leftover card piece… 🙂 🙂

Get Carried Away Card

Here’s another card I made using Mama Elephant stamp set….this one is called Carried Away….I usually don’t buy coordinating dies,so I cut out all the images by hand….
The card base is light orange and the top layer is die cut using the largest rectangle stitch die….I then prepared the top layer using distress inks…it took a while to get it right but I finally got there…I stamped the sentiment at the base of this top layer…
I then stamped all the images on a separate piece of paper and coloured them all in as best as I could and cut them all out…I attached the little boy image on top of the balloon and used adhesive foam under it before placing it onto the card…the little bunny and balloon string are adhered directly onto the top layer…
Finally I used Mama Elephant Confetti Die with gold cardstock and placed these various sized stars on the card…
I do hope you like this card as much as I do…
