    Happy Birthday Card by Maria

    Do you ever run out of birthday cards?  I do!  I make them a lot but I always seem to run out of these cards, right when I need it the most.  This gave me the motivation to make some birthday cards today.

    I am showcasing a lot of products from Kat Scrappiness.   I used the new Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Dies, the Woodgrain Frame Diamond Wire Background Die, the Photo Booth 4 x 8 Clear Stamps by Your Next Stamp, the Photo Booth Polaroid die, the Stitched Flag Diesand the Everyday Brush Stroke stamp set by Kat Scrappiness.

    I started out by die-cutting the polaroid with some white card stock.  I stamped the images on the inside of the polaroid, and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut another piece of white card stock using the Stitched Scallop Rectangle Dies.


    To create my own patterned paper, I used the Everyday Brush Stroke stamp set to stamp the images on my card panel.


    I picked up the die-cuts and I temporarily placed them on top of my stamping tool so I can figure out the placement for the stamp images, as well as the polaroids.


    I die-cut the smallest of the Tag Banner Dies with the Lawn Fawn Gotta Have Gingham 6×6 patterned paper in different colors.  I assembled the card my adhering the polaroids on top of the stamped background.  I added the tag banner dies behind one of the photos.    I stamped the sentiment “Happy Birthday” from the Everyday Brush Stroke stamp set.


    To finish my design, I added some black dots to the background to fill in some empty spaces.


    Aren’t those images so adorable?  I also love the colorful tag banner dies behind the photo.  It made it look really festive!


    I really love how these cards turned out.  It took me about half an hour to make one card so it wasn’t too bad.  I will be mass-producing these cards so I can have them on hand.



    Plus here’s another “just-because” card featuring  the new Woodgrain Frame Diamond Wire Background Die.  I did an inlaid background technique with the new die



    I inserted a heart-shaped paper clip and also included a push-pin sticker to make it look like a bulletin board.
