Layered Tulip Birthday

Hello! My name is Sheri Gilson and I’m super excited to be a Guest Designer for the month of April & May!! Thank you so much for having me!!

For my first card I created a Birthday card featuring a mix of some of my current favorite dies from the store. I don’t know about you but I’m loving the NEW Mini Slimline card size. So I pulled out the Mini Slimline Scallop Edge and Mini Slimline Embossed Edge die sets.

Steps to create card:

  1. Cut Card Base: 7″ x 6″, scored at 3 1/2″
  2. Die Cut largest scallop panel from the Mini Slimline Scallop Edge die set.
  3. Cut out Pink Mat 2 7/8″ x 5 1/4″.
  4. Die Cut White Panel from Mini Slimline Embossed Edge die Set.
  5. Take White Panel and dry emboss it with the Gina K Leafy Stencil. Refer to your die cut machine manual for proper sandwich to dry emboss.
  6. Die Cut Layered Tulip Bouquet Die using Pink, Green & Dark Green card stock. You will also need to cut the Bow using White card stock.
  7. To add a little dimension to my tulips I ink blended the center pieces with coordinating pink ink. (Tip: Take a post-It note, flip over and attache the small petals to the sticky strip and you can ink blend holding onto the other end of the Post-It and not have to try holding them in place individually.)
  8. Attach Tulip to White Panel. I off set the two stem pieces for a shadow. I also attached the center pieces to the flowers with a piece of foam tape for dimension.
  9. Die Cut three “Happy” from the Happy Easter w/Shadow die three times (One Pink and two in white, stack them for added dimension).
  10. Heat Emboss the word “Birthday” from the Gina K Crafty Notes stamp set with white embossing powder and cut into a banner using scissors or your paper trimmer.
  11. Attach the “Happy” die cut to your card and add the “Birthday” embossed banner strip to your card panel.
  12. For final embellishment I added a little Glitter to the center of the tulips by running a Quickie Glue Pen to the edge and sprinkling a little glitter. I also added a few Clear Mirrored Confetti Dots with Gina K Connect Glue.

 

I also added a little Gina K Foam Tape when I attached the card to the card base.  I love adding dimension to my cards!

 

Here’s a list of all the supplies I used from the store:

Happy Stamping!!
