Hello crafty friends, it’s Summer Hills-Painter here. My son finally reached the TEEN stage so I wanted to make him a special card for his birthday. I really like the Birthday Flip Card die set and could not wait to give it a try.
From white cardstock, cut the card base and the two accessory layers from the Birthday Flip Card die set. Using the Fitted Rectangles die set, cut two rectangles out of the same white cardstock. Using the happy birthday from Birthday Flip Card die set, cut out the happy birthday from colored cardstock of your choice. From the Party Time die set, cut some confetti pieces from the same colored cardstock. Cut the balloon from the Party Time die set, cut a balloon from clear stencil material. Also cut the balloon from masking paper. I like to use full adhesive Post-It notes. Using the number tag from Planner Essentials 26 , cut out the number tag topper from scrap cardstock. Finally, cut the birthday number from black cardstock using the Planner Essentials 37 die set. I like to cut them 3 times because I adhere them together allowing for dimension to the numbers without having to use foam tape.
Using the tag topper die cut, stencil numbers randomly on the card layering pieces and one of the Fitted Rectangles die cuts. Also ink the edges of the pieces with the same colored ink.
Using the other Fitted Rectangle die cut, lay the balloon stencil created from the Party Time die set and adhere with low tack tape. Using the same colored ink from the previous set and in a balloon onto the rectangle. Be sure to wipe the ink off of your stencil before moving to the next step.
Using the balloon mask, lay the mask over the first inked balloon. Shift the stencil to the left to create another balloon. Ink the balloon with another ink and then clean the stencil.
Shift the stencil to the right and repeat the same process.
Once all of the stenciling is completed, use a black pen to draw in balloon strings.
Adhere the number to the rectangle
On the stenciled rectangle, stamp happy from the Sentiments 1 – Celebrations stamp set. From the happy birthday die cut, adhere be day. For the hyphen, is the knock out from the letter “A”.
Adhere the layering pieces and the stenciled rectangle to the flip card base
