Hello crafty friends, I am bringing in the Monsters both Christmas and Birthday for todays blog post!! These cute tags come with a bit of a twist as the Birthday Tag is a small Garbage Can pop-up card. I hope you enjoy todays post and lets get stared!
Step 1: Out of dark grey card stock cut 4 x 11 & score in half, cut your card by laying the garbage can die just above the fold line, then run it through your machine. Next out of light grey cardstock cut out your garbage can and lid, I also created a handle by re-cutting the lid from black cardstock then I trimmed the handle and adhered it the the light grey handle.
Step 2: Line the pop-up die along the score line of your garbage can card and run it through your machine to create the pop-out. See picture below.
Step 3: out of Josets cute Monster sets cut both creatures from red, orange and other coordinating cardstock. I inked all my edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and assembled. Next I cut out the balloon, stars, cake, birthday hat and party pieces ink and assembled.
Step 4: Create your card front by attaching all your creatures as per picture above using your favorite adhesive.
I added some glossy accents to the stars and the top of his Birthday hat.
Step 5: I added my cake, party favors and quote from the Monster Hugs stamp set to the inside of my pop-up tag. Last step is Speckling with a heavy body white paint and a fan brush*Optional*
