Here is a YouTube Live I filmed constructing these cards.
Check it out and then read below for measurements and a shopping list.
The front of this first card is pictured above. I created a base for using a 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” card panel and a folded A2 card base which I cut a round card base out of using an approximately 4" circle die. I placed the die over the folded edge and ran it through my die cutter which allowed for an uncut edge which created the card base. I then attached in to the flat panel on the edge and attached a 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” piece of patterned paper to hide the back of the circle. I then lined and stamped the sentiment on the outside of the card and embellished it with a bow and later some of the Doodle Pop Embellishments. The finishing touch was a circle placed under the front of the card to provide a place for the giver to write on (cut out during the creation of card 5).
This card was created using the Lawn Fawn Pivot Pop-Up Die. It is a top folding A2 card base. I decorated the front with 2 panels that are 2” x 3 1/2” each. I rounded the corner and attached them with tape runner before decorating with the washi tape and the globe hello sticker. The inside is embellished with a 4” x 5 1/4” piece of patterned paper on the top plus some washi and mini journaling cards from the paper pad.
Last but not least, we have a 6” square card. I LOVE this size and always try to include one.
I set aside my circle frame and the round center. I then centered the patterned papers and attached them to the card base, after which I attached the die once again and cut out a window to the inside of the card. I saved the white frame for another project and used the circle to attach inside of the first card.
I stamped and die cut one of the Happy’s from the Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy Stamp set and cut it out with the coordinating die. I used Copic Markers in matching colors to color in the Happy. The birthday die is a mystery. Not sure where it came from but it was perfect for the card so I decided to use it. I die cut the Happy, Birthday, and circle frame using fun foam so that I could pop these pieces up inside the window of my card. I glued the paper and matching foam pieces together.
I trimmed some of the foam from the B and the Y in birthday so it would lay flush with the frame. After attaching all the pieces to the card, I embellished the front with several gold sequins and called it a day.
I’m really happy with how these all turned out and can’t wait until next month. The theme is: It’s All About Him … .
