Here is my card for this weeks blog hop:
1. For my card, I colored my Inky Antics Flower Turtle Clear Stamp set with my Copic markers and put Glossy Accents on the balloon for a shiny effect. The white card stock square is 3×3. 2. I ran my 3×3 square thru my 5″ Creative Station by Xyron and layered it with my Perfect Layers Mini tool with the 1/16″ layer. I used the same Perfect Layers Mini tool to layer the orange patterns paper from Echo Park Scoot Collection with the Perfect Layers Mini tool 1/16″ layer. (I used my Perfect Cutting Mat to cut all the layers on my card.) 3. I then die cut the Echo Park Scoot number paper with my Lawn Fawn Lawn Cuts Stitched Party Banner. I then used my Perfect Layers Mini tool to make the 1/16″ layer in navy card stock to layer the banner. I then ran the die cut through my Xyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker along with the Lawn Fawn sun die cut. ( I used white card stock instead of the EP numbers paper for the example here) 4. I then cut the fish tale part of the banner with my Perfect Layers Mini tool 1/16″ layer. You cut one side stopping in the middle, then flip your Perfect Layers Mini tool around to the top and cut the other side. Our Perfect Layers Mini tool catches the banner perfectlyevery time for a precise cut!
5. Next I cut a 1/2″ layer, using our Perfect Layers Mini tool, out the EP yellow patterned paper on both sides of the EP numbers paper banner and a 1/4 layer at the top and bottom of the banner. I then adhered the whole layered piece onto the striped EP paper and then adhered that to my 6×6 navy card. And finished the outside off with two red enamel dots.
6. I die cut my Simon Says Stamp “happy” die and ran that through my Xyron 1.5″ Sticker Maker. 7. For inside of the card, I adhered the “happy” die cut to the white banner, added two enamel dots. I adhered the grass die to the white banner and trimmed the excess with scissors. I repeated the layering steps 3, 4, and 5 using my Perfect Layers Mini tools and step 6 using the “happy” die and stamped the birthday sentiment below that for the finishing touches.
