Birthday Candles Mini Slimline Card

April 5, 2021

Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Lately my favourite sized card is the Mini Slimline. I wanted to show that most background dies that were made for A2 size can work to create Mini Slimline size. This will definitely if there is a repeating pattern like the Kaleidoscope Background die. Below you will find the steps to create your own Birthday Candles Card.

Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 7” x 6”, score at 3 1/2” and fold in half for a horizontal top fold card (Mini Slimline)

Step 2 – Diecut Kaleidoscope Background using White Light Weight Cardstock to use as a stencil. Place it on top of White Soft Finish Cardstock trimmed to 3 1/4” x 5 3/4” in the center. Using a Blender Brush apply any ink of your choice. I used Distress Oxide Black Soot. Remove the stencil and align it to the top finding the repeating pattern. Repeat this step for the bottom layer of the panel. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. See photo below.

Step 3 – Diecut Birthday Candles using various colors of Cardstock. I used yellow for all my bases and used colors of the rainbow for the top with patterns. Red, Orange, Yellow, Green and Blue and Black for the Candle Holder. Assemble using tweezers and Kids Choice Glue. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.

Step 4 – Stamp Sentiments 1 – Celebration using Versamark on Black Cardstock. Sprinkle White Embossing Powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool. Diecut Sentiments 1 – Celebration using a scrap piece of Cardstock. Place the stamped sentiment underneath the diecut and place the die inside until it locks into place. Place a piece of Purple Tape and pass it through your Diecut Machine. Adhere to card front using Kids Choice Glue.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and will look how your stamps and dies meant for A2 can be used for Mini Slimline cards. Below you will find a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Winter Birthday Card

January 18, 2021

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!
