Pretty Little Studio: Clear Birthday Minis

Saturday, June 9, 2018

Morning, y'all; and welcome, once again, to the weekend!  I trust you have amazing plans to fill your downtime.  We've got breakfast in the park and a birthday party planned for today; but before we can get to that, I have a couple of birthday minis, using clear cardstock, to share with you all.  They happen to be up on the Pretty Little Studio blog this morning.
I started these cards by cutting a sheet of Star Garland Clear 8x8 into two 3-3/4" x 7-1/4" strips and folding them in half to create 3-3/4" square card bases.  I then die-cut a Stitched Cloudline from white, glitter cardstock and adhered it in the bottom center of the card face.  To hide the adhesive through the clear cardstock AND to give me a place to write a little message to the birthday recipients, I die-cut that same Stitched Cloudline from three sheets of white cardstock and adhered them inside...
and to the back of the card base.
Now, let's get a little up close and personal.  Shall we?
To personalize this first card, I wrapped a length of white string, three times, around the cut end of a Label Medley Die Cut and tied it in a bow.  The label itself was then popped up, with foam tape, near the bottom of the card face and flush with the right edge and topped with a "party time", Eat Cake Die-Cut sentiment, popped up, with foam tape, over a black Follow Your Dreams Arrow Sticker.
A "make a wish" Party Hat Word Flag, backed with an additional Party Hat Word Flag, just to enhance the color palette and create layers, was tucked under the sentiment's left side...
and a scattering of foam, glitter stars and Shining Star Stickers, backed with white cardstock and popped up with foam tape, complete the look.
The second mini...
uses all the same supplies as the first; however, the previous, "party time" Eat Cake Die-Cut was swapped for one that says "make a wish"...
and the previous, "make a wish" Party Hat Word Flag was swapped for one that says "eat cake".
A different scattering of Shining Star Stickers, prepared in the same way as above, along with more of those fabulous, foam, glitter stars, completes the look.
Thanks so much for peeking!  Have a terrific weekend, friends!
