Can you believe I’ve posted so many days in a row?!! This is kinda fun . . . I gotta remember to do this more often. LOL So, today I wanted to share with you the card that I made for the current CARDS Gallery Challenge, which is to create a birthday card. Easy, right?!
I’ve actually had this idea in my head ever since some new PTI stuff arrived at my doorstep a few weeks ago. I love their dies – so fun and super versatile. So many of them mix and match together to create some really great embellishments. I used the Take Three die to create the openings on the card base for the gifts. Then I embossed the woodgrain onto the card base using an impression plate. Then I used the ribbon/bow from the Make A Wish Collection dies. Assembling it all was super easy! I just created a panel for the inside of the card, and adhered three strips of polka dot paper so that each color peeked through each opening – I adhered the polka dot panel to the inside of the card using pop dots to give the gifts some dimension. The ribbons/bows are attached to the card front with a glue pen. The sentiment was stamped with VersaMark and then heat embossed with navy embossing powder. Easy peasy!!
