T wo cards featuring the Bubble Over Bundle from the Spring/Summer 2018 Catalogue and the Bubbles & Fizz DSP from Sale-A-Bration.
Cut a sheet of A4 Whisper White Cardstock to measure 11.5" X 5.75" and score the long side at 5.75". Fold along the score line then burnish with a Bone Folder to form a crisp fold.
Cut a piece measuring 5.5"x5.5" from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP (Stars for the masculine card and coloured bubble-pops for the feminine card). Adhere this to the front of your card base with your favourite adhesive (I use Multipurpose Liquid Glue as it give me a bit of 'wiggle time' to make sure the paper is centered).
Using the Bubble Over Stamp Set, stamp out the following on Whisper White Cardstock:-
2 large bottles - both in Tranquil Tide for the masculine card, and one each in Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight for the feminine card.
2 large 'stretched hexagonal' labels using Lemon Lime Twist ink for the masculine card and Peekaboo Peach ink for the feminine card.
1 set of bubbles using Smoky Slate ink (masculine card only).
Using the Bottles & Bubble Framelits Dies cut out the pieces you stamped in Step 3 plus the following:-
Masculine Card:- 2 large and 1 small bottle caps (side on) from Silver Foil Sheet; 1 small 'stretched hexagonal' label from Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock.
Feminine Card:- as above plus two straws (one of each) from Basic Black Cardstock.
Using the Large Number Framelits Dies, cut out a 1 and an 8 using Berry Burst Cardstock for the masculine card and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock for the feminine one.
On a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 4.5"x0.75" stamp the sentiment 'May your day BUBBLE OVER with happiness.' in the centre using Berry Burst ink for the masculine card and Lemon Lime Twist ink for the feminine one. Using the Triple Banner Punch, punch each end of the strip, then ink the edges with the matching ink.
On a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock and using the appropriate ink, stamp 'TODAY' from the Tabs For Everything stamp set, being careful not to ink up the 'DO' part. Using the Circle Tab Punch, line up the scrap of card so that the word will be cut out in the rectangular part of one side. Trim the piece so that the edges are straight (you could also do this with a trimmer or scissors but it can be fiddly), then ink the edges.
Inside the masculine card, stamp a small bottle in Tranquil Tide in the bottom right hand corner. Stamp 'Have A Birthday Brew' onto the Lemon Lime Twist label and stick this to the bottle, adding the small cap to the top.
Inside the feminine card stamp the small bottle in Daffodil Delight. Stamp the small 'For You' circle from the Bubble Over stamps in Calypso Coral onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock the cut it out using the small starburst die from the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits. Attach this to the centre of the Lemon Lime Twist label and attach to the bottle, adding the bottle cap to the top.
Assemble the front of your card as follows:-
Using liquid glue, attach the labels to the two bottles then add the numbers, one to each bottle, using Stampin' Dimensionals.
On the feminine card, attach a straw to the back of each bottle so they face away from each other.
Using Stampin' Dimensionals, attach the two bottles to the centre of the card, about 1/4" up from the bottom of the DSP.
Attach one of the large bottle caps to the bottom right corner of the 'Today' sentiment with liquid glue, then attach the sentiment to the right of the '8' bottle level with the bottle bottom.
On the masculine card, attach the other bottle cap to the top of the '1' bottle. On the feminine card, attach this cap to the left of the '1' bottle at a slight angle level with the bottom of the bottle.
Attach the sentiment banner to the top centre of the card, approx 1/8" from the edge of the DSP using Stampin Dimensionals.
Finally, on the masculine card attach the bubbles above the open neck of bottle '8'.
You will need a 6"x6" envelope which you can get from most good craft stores, or you could make one using the Stampin' UP! Envelope Punch Board.
