A playful birthday card with a little sparkle using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Pool Party Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Pool Party Cardstock
- 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1" x 3" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1" x 3-3/4" of tiny white stars and dots on pale green background design from Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper
Put down a piece of wax paper to protect your work surface. Place the Pool Party rectangle on the wax paper. Place the clouds mask from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks on top. Use pieces of washi tape to secure the cardstock and mask in place.
Use the small triangle Palette Knive to get small amounts of Shimmery White Embossing Paste out of the container. Spread it around on the mask so that you get an even, smooth coating of paste in all the cut out areas on the mask. Remove the mask and set the cardstock aside to dry. Clean the mask and palette knife thoroughly with warm water immediately so the paste doesn't dry on your tools. Be sure to close the embossing paste container right away as well.
Mount the large hot air balloon image from the Lift Me Up Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Highland Heather Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the largest white rectangle.
Pick out the oval die that cuts out a 2-1/8" wide oval from the Layering Ovals Dies. Place the stamped hot air balloon on the white rectangle on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the oval die on top so it is centered over the balloon side to side with the balloon as close to the top as possible. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Mount the sentiment of choice from the Lift Me Up Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Pool Party Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the smaller white rectangle.
Cut 4” piece of Pool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon so it is angled on both ends.
If the paste clouds are dry, proceed to the next step.
Tip: Speed up drying using the Heat Tool if needed.
Adhere the Pool Party layer with paste clouds to the front of the Pool Party card.
Adhere the strip of Twinkle Twinkle Designer Paper to the bottom of the front of the card.
Put a 3-1/2” long strip of Tear & Tape Adhesive horizontally across the center of the top of the designer paper about 1/8” from the top.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strip and adhere the ribbon piece to it.
Adhere the hot air balloon oval cut out to the front of the card so the bottom of the oval overlaps the top of the designer paper strip a bit.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment rectangle to the front of the card so it is centered over the ribbon and is just below the bottom of the hot air balloon.
