Now let’s get to learning how Jean creating this fabulous clean and simple mini slimline birthday card!
To get started, Jean stamped one of the sentiments from our Happy Birthday #1 stamp set on a piece of light blue card stock roughly cut to mini slimline card size.
She then cut the different elements of her gorgeous tiered cake using our Birthday Cake Die set and scraps of pink, blue, white, yellow (for the flames) and silver foil (for the stand) card stock. She assembled these with liquid glue and some good old fashioned tape on the back to keep everything together.
Next, Jean used the two largest dies in our Mini Slimline Nested With Stitch set to cut a frame from some patterned paper.
She then placed her frame over her stamped light blue panel to get her alignment of the greeting exactly right and trimmed that panel to fit just so. Great twist on trying to get the stamp centered – stamp first and THEN trim! She then adhered her now perfectly aligned light blue piece to her mini slimline card base and popped the frame over that all with her tape runner.
She added her fabulous cake to the card front with some dimensional adhesive and then added her custom embellishments that she made by cutting some glitter card stock with our Fishing Boat and Lifeguard Tower Die sets to get those different sized circles. Is that not a GENIUS way to use up scraps and dies you would NEVER put together? Sometimes our Design Team sees things we don’t! So smart!
Honestly, this clean and simple mini slimline birthday card could be “your” card that you send to everyone and change up the colors and patterns depending on who you are sending it to! And remember, mini slimline cards are PERFECTLY sized for checks, cash, gift cards………
