You Can Have Your Cake, and Make Birthday Projects Too, Part 1

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. I made six birthday projects to share with you. Birthday cards and gift packaging are always handy to have on hand, right?

Today, I'm going to share the first two cards and gift box with you.

For the first card I die cut the pop-up from Watercolor Paper, and trimmed it away from the pop-up portion. I water-colored it with ink refills and Aqua Painters. It makes a beautiful focal point for the front of a card, don’t you think? These dies can be used in many different ways.

I also decorated the inside of each of my cards. I love the fun sayings in this stamp set. I used the cute patterned papers from the It's My Party Designer Series Paper Stack to accent my cards with. I also used the Cherry On Top Cotton Paper Assortment with the Fringe Scissors and some Crushed Curry Baker's Twine to complete the card front.

For my next card, I heat embossed the greeting in white on three different colors of cardstock (Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Mint Macaron), and then cut them into strips. Some more patterned paper and twine as well as the It's My Party Enamel Dots in matching colors complete the card front.

On the inside, I used the pop-up die as intended, and added some more white heat embossing to highlight it. I also backed the entire Melon Mambo die cut with some yellow patterned paper.

My next project is made with the Gift Box Punch Board and some Sahara Sand Cardstock. I used more of the yellow cotton paper fringed, more patterned paper and the wonderful Baker's Twine Combo Pack. The greeting is stamped in Versamark Ink onto Watercolor Paper, heat embossed in white and then I watercolored over each word of the greeting in a different color. This is a great way to highlight your greeting and make it stand out. I also used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch for the top of the tag. It’s so easy to make a cute tag with a 2” strip of paper and that punch!
