Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday - Celebrate Birthday Card

Well, hello, peaches! It's been quite the weekend! There were birthdays and bridal showers and all manner of celebrations. So now it's nice to get back to my regularly scheduled week. Don't get me wrong; I DO love a good party, celebrating with friends and family, but after that busy, celebratory weekend, I'm happy for some quite and slower paced activities and you KNOW that includes crafting. For now, though, I'll share the birthday card that I made for my 7-year old's birthday (I still can't believe she's seven).

Today's card features a little of this and a little of that. I started by creating the background. I wanted it to look like a party on a card, so naturally there needed to be confetti. I used the largest confetti die in the I used the Candles & Confetti Framelits Dies to die cut from some scratch paper to create a mask. I used the mask to add a fun textured confetti background by spreading Embossing Paste over the mask, onto my background. I didn't add any color to the paste because I wanted it to be a subtle textured background.

Next I created the large "celebrate" sentiment piece. I wanted it to be dimentional as well, so I die cut the word 3 times (2 from Whisper White Cardstock and 1 from Watercolor Paper) and layered them on top of each other, creating a chipboard effect. However, before layering on the last top "celebrate", I colored the Watercolor Paper die cut with my Aqua Painter and 3 ink pads. Here's how you color it:

  1. Use Flirty Flamingo Ink on the top portion of  the word celebrate.
  2. Next, use Pineapple Punch Ink for the middle section of the word, making sure to blend where the Flamingo and Pineapple meet.
  3. Finally, use Bermuda Bay Ink for the bottom portion of the word, making sure to blend where the Bermuda and Pineapple meet.
When the colors meet in the middle, they mix and create this beautiful rainbow word sentiment, which adds some colorful "pop" to this card.

This card is packed with all kinds of fun details! If you look closely at the picture below you can see the embossed party streamers on the Vellum Paper Scalloped Circle Die Cut. I used the Birthday Backgrounds Set and some Clear Embossing Powder to create this effect.

 To finish off my card, I used the  Broadway Birthday Stamp Set for the tiny sentiment, added some Silver Metallic Thread, and a few sequins from the Iridescent Sequin Assortment

Here's the mini 3 x 3 lunchbox version I made for my daughter's lunch for school. Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post!
