Picture perfect birthday
Happy Saturday Stampin friends, today we’ve been to the Toby carvery for Lunch/dinner, they do this amazing Yorkshire wrap. Its huge! literally came back home and had to sleep it off for 2 hours.
Today i’m sharing a card made using the retiring Picture perfect Birthday. I’m not sure if there is a name for this technique ive used? Let me know if you know.
I’m calling it the inverted frame technique, instead of layering up, were layering down.
- Picture perfect birthday stamp set (Retiring June 3rd 2019)
- Basic grey card stock x 3 sheets
- Whisper white
- Ink pad colours – So saffron, Calypso coral, Basic grey
- White embossing powder
- versamark watermark ink pad
- Stampin Up stitched rectangle dies
Adhesive – Stampin up dimensionals & tombow glue
- Cut a sheet of Basic grey cardstock down to 10″ x 7″, score on the longer side at 5″, This is your card base.
- Cut 3 sheets of basic grey cardstock at 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″
- Choose the 3 stitched rectangles youd like to use for your card, Place the largest of the 3 onto a sheet of basic grey c/s. Run through your die cutting machine.
- Place the card that you’ve just cut onto of another basic grey sheet, use the first (top) layer as a guide, place the middle stitched rectangle die in the centre of the die cut. Remove the top sheet of card stock and run through your die cutting machine. Repeat for the last layer using the smallest of the 3 dies.
- Using versamark stamp the sprinkles from the stamp set covering each card stock layer.
- Place the first basic grey layer ontop of the cardbase, use this as your guide to stamp the sentiment in Versamark watermark ink and heat emboss using white embossing powder.
- Using 3d foam pads, adhere each layer to your cardbase.
- Stamp out the bows and candles (as many as you’d like)
*TIP – you can cut these in half and tuck them in between the layers.
- Tuck the stamped images in between each layer and ontop of the card stock, when your happy, use tombow glue to attach to card.
