Happy Birthday & Thanks

I'm doing two cards in this post as they share the same items,slightly different in layout and different sentiments. Lot of photos in this post as I decided to take some photos as I progressed and share incase anyone else wants to do the same idea.



'Happy Birthday' card 


'Thanks' card


These two cards came from one base. First I blended three pink Distress inks onto cardstock.


After I had die cut the shape, I used some Press N Seal to keep all the little pieces within the frame of the die cut. I then added little pieces of tape to all the little pieces of the die cut.

I removed the cover on the double sided tape on only some of the pieces. Flipped the piece over onto a card base and the pieces with the double sided tape uncovered stayed on the card and the others stayed on the Press N Seal.

I then peeled off the rest of the tape covers, flipped the whole piece and again pressed down onto a card base.


Here you can see the card bases for two cards and the negative die cut that I will use on another card. Each card has the pinks going up in gradients of intensity in colour but don't look overwhelming.




Finished off with a gold glossy cardstock 'Happy Birthday' and 'Thanks'.

I would like to enter these in:

Fabulous. Thanks for sharing how you created these. I would never have lined the pieces up straight! The ombre colour is just perfect and the gold sentiments are spot on.
