You Can Have Your Cake, and Make Birthday Projects Too, Part 2
May 23, 2016
Hello and welcome back! Recently I created some projects using a bundle of products including the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies and the Party with Cake Stamp Set. Today I have two more cards and a gift box to share with you.
For this project, I wanted to make a card that would work for a masculine birthday, so I left off the bright pink and stuck with more neutral colors. I water-colored over my greeting again, but this time it was heat embossed in black. I added a little fringe, this time using the 2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper. In addition to making personalized envelopes, it’s thinner than our normal patterned paper so it works well with the Fringe Scissors too.
Ok, I have one more card to share! I made it 4” x 4”, but even though it is small it packs a big punch! I added a layer of Vellum Cardstock over the patterned paper so the balloons and greeting would stand out more, and did some machine stitching around the edge before adhering it to the card base. The balloons were punched out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch, and under the greeting I used some of the It's My Party Designer Washi Tape. The balloons and greeting were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals for more depth.
The inside is fancy, but it was easy to create with the second pop-up die. I just added some stamped confetti, and let the die stand out against the Melon Mambo Cardstock.
Next I used the leftover pink letters from the second card above to start the decorations for this gift bag. I selected 7 different patterns from the paper pack, one for the main panel, and then 6 others in 1” strips that are fringed. I started at the bottom and adhered them one at a time, about ¾” above the previous strip. Then I just adhered it to the front of the gift bag. It’s a simple project, but it has a big impact!
Well, that is all for today. I hope you keep the Party with Cake bundles in mind the next time you need to make some extra special birthday cards or gift packaging. Thanks for stopping by!
