Cute birthday slimline card by Tatiana

Hello there and happy Friday!!!

Design Team member Tatiana is here! Thanks so much for joining me! I’m super excited to be featured on Crafty Meraki blog! Today I came up with a fun and cute birthday card mixing and matching a couple of my favorite products from different brands!

Working on this project I decided to try a bright, cheerful and colorful background inked with Distress inks. Then I arranged a big white die cut word birthday from Crafty Meraki Birthday Slimline Tag Die as a central focus point and surrounded it with fun and cute stamps from Heffy Doodle Popping By Stamp Set. A small slimline card base was slightly extended to fit better all the illustrations.

Key Ingredients:

Step By Step Instructions:

  • Stamp on Copic X-Press paper all the illustrations you need from Popping By Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used MISTI stamping positioning tool for stamping.
  • Fussy cut all the stamps with the sharp small scissors right against the stamp lines.
  • Color all the elements with copic markers. I used:
    • red R0000-R00-R21-R22-R24
    • orange YR000-YR61-YR65-YR68
    • yellow Y11-YR31-YR65
    • teal BG10-BG11-BG13
    • grey W00-W1-W3
  • Paint the stamp edges with a black brush tip marker to hide any imperfection due to the fussy cutting.
  • Trim and score a card base slightly taller than a small slimline one (7″ x 3 1/2″) from Neenah Solar White paper.
  • Trim another 7″ x 3 1/2″ rectangle from a Bristol paper to use as a background.
  • Ink it with (starting from the top):
  • Splatter some tiny water droplets, a clear shimmer spray and a white gouache all across to add more interest to the pattern. Let the paper air dry or heat set it with a heat gun.
  • Die cut the fish-tail banner, using Birthday Slimline Tag Die, in the center of the inked background.
  • Die cut "Happy Birthday" words from the same Birthday Slimline Tag Die three times. Stack all the layers together with Distress Collage Medium Matte.
  • Add color to the die cut word "Happy" with copic markers.
  • Arrange all the elements on the card front and glue them in place by popping some on a foam tape for a fun dimensional look.
  • Finish with a couple of clear iridescent sequins, a generous coat of a clear glitter pen and a couple of highlights added with a white gel pen.

That's all for today!!! As always thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
