Welcome to this month's Blog Hop featuring projects using Sale-a-Bration items. If you aren't familiar with Sale-a-Bration, it is an annual sale from January-March. For each $50 or $100 spent (before s/h & tax), you can earn a free reward from the Sale-a-Bration Flyer.
My project today is a gate-fold card that uses the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set. This stamp set can be used for a birthday, anniversary or wedding card.
Card Base: 5 1/2" x 8" Mint Macaron Cardstock, scored at 2" on both ends.
First Layer: Two pieces of 1 3/4" x 5 1/4" So Saffron Cardstock. Place inside the Country Floral Embossing Folder and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Attach to the Card Base.
Second Layer: Place the rectangle Stitched So Sweetly Die on a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and put through a Die Cutting Machine. Stamp the cake image in Black Memento Ink. Color with the Mint Macaron and So Saffron Stampin' Blends Combos. Attach to the left side of the Card Base with Dimensionals.
Specialty folds add a unique look to handmade cards. Do you notice there is no sentiment inside? I wait until I need a card to stamp the correct sentiment.
The final touches are to add a bow from the 1/8" Mint Macaron Sheer Linen Ribbon using a Glue Dot, add a touch of Wink of Stella Glitter on the flowers and put three Pearl Basic Jewels in the center of the flowers.
