Clearly Big Birthday Wishes

Hello friends!  Hope you are having a good weekend so far!  I have a really fun card to share with you today using a couple of the new December releases from Sparkle N Sprinkle!  I’ve combined digital papers, digital images and also rubber stamps all with a unique twist!  Check it out:

Vicki-SnS-Clearly Birthday

I have made a fun “clear/see-through” card using the new Sparkle N Sprinkle A Big Birthday Wish rubber stamp set as well as the new Violets for You Digital Bundle.  (It comes with several gorgeous digital papers -some of which I’ve used on this design!)

To create the clear panel on the front of my card, I just used a standard A2 sized white top folding card base and cut off the front of it by leaving about 1″ at the top of it.  Then taking some SnS embossable acetate, I white heat embossed the “happy” sentiment all over it and cut it down to size to fit the front of the card and leaving enough “over-hang” so that I could attach it to the 1″ at the top of the card base. (I’ve used some Tear-ific Tape to attach it.)

I took a white panel and heat embossed the “birthday” & “wishes” sentiment with Berry Bliss EP and then layered a piece of black cardstock behind it.  I then white heat embossed the “wishes” sentiment over a strip of black card stock that I’ve cut into a banner and placed this underneath the “birthday”.

I’ve printed out the flower image and butterfly image from the Violet’s for You Digital Bundle.  I colored them with Copic markers, but there are several pre-colored ones if you prefer to do that.  For the top of the card, I’ve used some 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape and burnished some Caspia Sea glitter over it.  (I thought the color matched up beautifully with the digital papers from this set!)  For the bottom of the card front, I’ve cut a white strip of cardstock with a scallop die and then added a thin strip of Nuvo Burnished Rose Mirror cardstock over it.

Having a closer look at the butterfly, you can see the sparkle on it.  I achieved this by using some Sparkle N Sprinkle Brushable Glue (it dries clear) and then spinkling some Diamond Dust Glitter over it.

Because you can see through the front of the card, I wanted to make sure that my adhesive didn’t show on the back of the acetate on the inside, so I took a another piece of the Nuvo Burnished Rose Mirror cardstock slightly larger than the panel on the front and attached it on the inside lining it up with the front panel.  Then I cut a piece of those pretty digital papers from the digi bundle and attached it to the inside of the card.  I’ve also cut an additional white panel and lined it up with the other front panels so that you can’t see it from the front of the card, but when you open it, it gives you a place to put a message inside.

Here the card is laying flat so that you can see how it looks completely closed up with all of the layers showing together.  This was a really fun one to put together!  Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today!  Thanks for dropping in!
