Hi everyone! Gretchen here with the latest club release from The Stamps of Life. This new set is called birthday2celebrate. There’s a present box and lid outline that can be decorated with two different patterns or a solid piece, three bows, a cross bow for the present, and a ton of different sayings.
I’ve got a photo tutorial for you today with the details on how I made this festive Happy Birthday card.
To create this Happy Birthday card, stamp your images onto cardstock. I stamped the outside in black and then filled the insides with some of the cool patterns that come with the stamp set. Add a bow to each present.
Cut your images out. I decided to just use three for my card.
Create a standard 4-1/4” x 5-1/2” card base out of cardstock. Layer with two different pieces of patterned paper and a cardstock strip as shown in main example on the card front. Outline papers in black. Add stamped presents to card front, adding pop dots behind the center present.
Cut a banner using the Holiday cartridge with an eclips machine and stamp the sentiment. If you don’t have an eclips machine, improvise with another cutter or cut a plain strip to stamp onto instead.
To get the curved letter look on the banner, turn the sentiment gently and press into your block to make it match the curve of the banner. Outline the banner shape with a black pen.
Stamp sentiment onto the inside of your card.
