I hope you are all having a fabulous Sunday!
Today’s card was inspired by the following Simon Says Stamp video:
Oh my goodness! This was a fun card to make. I received two packages of paper straws and I didn’t know what to do with them. I looked on YouTube for ideas and found the above-mentioned video and fell in love.
I was able to use so many different tools. I used my Cricut to cut out the borders. I used my Cuddlebug to flatten the straws and cut the word ”Happy.” Finally, I broke out my gold embossing powder and a heat gun to create, ”Birthday.”
My ”oops” moment happened when I adhered the pink Happy to the straws. I realized it was off center and the word didn’t pop. I decided to cut the word again in white cardstock and then simply offset it to the pink Happy I believe this is called, ”Shadowing.” I wonder if this technique was created after doing what I just did? It saved the card!
This uick and fun card wraps up this weeks birthday themed cards. Tune in tomorrow for my kickoff of handcrafted tags.
