Another Day, Another Card

September 23rd, 2010 by Avital

Happy Birthday Card

After making yesterday’s cards I felt inspired to play around with Hero Arts’s Circle Doily cling stamp some more. Plus, in the meantime I got invited to another birthday party of a very dear friend…

Then again, do I really need a reason to make another card? I didn’t think so either.

This time I thought I will use autumnal colors to indicate the season.


How To

  1. Start by cutting and folding the card base (cut at 8½” by 5½” and fold at 4¼”).
  2. Stamp the big definition stamp on the card base with a very light ink color (Antique Linen).
  3. Stamp the doily with Versamark ink on the red cardstock and pour over some white embossing powder. Tap off the excess and heat emboss with a heat gun.
  4. Cut around the doily with precision scissors and adhere to the card’s front.
  5. Cut a small slit on the card’s fold and feed a string through it, make sure both end will “meet” at the front of the card.
  6. Feed the ends through the flower, add a couple foam adhesive dots to the flower for an extra hold and adhere in place.
  7. Feed the ends through the button holes and tie in a bow. Secure the bow with a dot of clear adhesive and conceal the adhesive with a gem.
  8. Stamp the greeting with white embossing powder on the same red cardstock. Apply embossing powder. Tap off the excess powder and heat emboss.
  9. Cut around the greeting, leave some more room at the end pointing inwards and round both corners of that end with a corner rounder. Adhere in place.
