Happy Birthday Card

I love stamping a title on patterned paper and then cutting out the individual letters. I created the “title” for this card by using (2) different stamp sets with a similar font style but different sizes.

This close up photo shows the difference the Perfect Crafting Pouch can make even when used on paper. The “H” was stamped without the pouch, and you can see the black area of the letter is kind of transparent. The letter “D” was stamped using the Perfect Crafting Pouch. You can see how the black area of the letter is a very opaque, solid black. I used The Best Glue Ever to create dimensional adhesive dots so I could pop up the letters to different heights.

Inside the card I stamped the sentiment onto a specialty paper from DCWV — Shimmer cardstock. The Perfect Crafting Pouch helped me get a nice crisp image, and the Perfect Cleaning Cloth was used to quickly swipe away the powdery residue. Brilliant!

Adhering Elements to Your Projects

In another beautiful layout, Cynthia used the Best Glue Ever for her flowers and branches. The glue is perfect for adhering these kinds of larger and uneven elements! Here's a few close-ups of the layout:

Embellished Card

I just love the simplicity and the elegance of this card. Not to mention the ease of recreating and making multiples.

Because I made quite a few of these, I used Embellie Gellie to help me pick up the tiny pearls and correctly place them.
