Pretty Little Studio: Happy Birthday x2

Saturday, May 19, 2018

Morning, y'all, and welcome to the weekend!  I'm up on the Pretty Little Studio blog today sharing a couple of birthday cards, inspired mostly by our It's Your Birthday Collection; but they also utilize elements from Beautiful Day, Summer Vibes, Blooming Hearts, AND Dream Big.  Enjoy!
So, let's get up close and personal with each one.  Shall we?
I started this card by adhering a 5" x 3-3/4" piece of Now You see Me Clear paper over the same size piece of Birthday 09 print, which was adhered to the white, cardstock, card face.  To soften those bold triangles, I anchored a 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of dry-embossed vellum, in the prints' combined centers, with bright-pink-threaded, straight, machine stitching.  A Cookies Shipping Tag was then backed with a snippet of cheesecloth for texture; laced with white string, tied in a bow; and adhered, with foam tape, in the center of the card face.
A "HELLO lovely" Shine Bright Die Cut was then popped up, in the center of the tag, with foam tape and topped with a "what a beautiful day" A Great Day Flag Sticker, popped up with more foam tape.  I LOVE foam tape ;)!
A Beautiful Day Bookmark Journaling Card butterfly, adhered just as its center, to give its wings lift, as well as a handful of Seaspray Sequins, completes the look.
The second card, from the clear cardstock step through to the prepped tag, with the exception of a different tag being used from that same Cookies Shipping Tags package, began in the same way as the first.
It was then topped with a "be happy" A Great Day Flag Sticker, popped up with foam tape and anchored, at its right end, with a Spring Fling Animal Die-Cut butterfly...
as well as a "happy birthday" Eat Cake Word Die Cut, popped up with foam tape.  A sprinkling of more Seaspray Sequins completes the look.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by, friends!  Now, get out there and make your weekends creative ones.  Hugs!
