Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. As I was pondering what my next card would be I realized I never made a winter birthday card for people who have birthday’s in the winter months. I thought it would be fun to combine the Polar Bear die with the Party Accessories dies to create a fun Winter themed Birthday card. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 11″ x 4 1/4″, score a 5 1/2″ and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim Soft Blue Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Place a snow stencil on top of the Cardstock and apply Texture Paste using a Palette Knife. Remove the excess and stencil. Let dry. (If you don’t have a snow stencil then add some White Acrylic paint onto an Acrylic Block. Spray some water and mix it. Then using a Watercolor Brush splash it onto the Cardstock. This will create a snowy background. Let dry.) Once dry adhere the panel to the card front using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Party Accessories (Balloon die) x 7 using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere them together using Kid’s Choice Glue. Turn it around and adhere several strings in color grey. Use Kid’s Choice Glue then reinforce it with Clear Tape. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 4 – Diecut Polar Bear using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Assemble using Kid’s Choice Glue. Diecut Party Accessories (party hat and trim dies) using Soft Blue Cardstock for the solid base and Silver Glitter Cardstock for the circles top piece and trim). Assemble and adhere the party hat to the Polar Bear’s head using Kid’s Choice Glue. Adhere it to the card front using Foam Tape making sure to adhere on top of the string ends to keep it secure.
Step 5 – Diecut Words 1 – Celebration using Soft Blue Cardstock x3 the words Happy and Birthday. Stack each layer using Kid’s Choice Glue and then adhere on top of the Balloons using Kid’s Choice Glue.
A birthday card does not always have to be about flowers, cakes and presents. Think of the season when that person’s birthday is in and create a card with that season. For instance a person’s birthday that lands in Fall you can create a Fall color scene background. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
