Winnie & Walter Birthday cards

Hey there, blog friends!  How are you doing today?  I'm doing well...just been busy with life here in Fargo.  Thanks for being patient with me while my blog has been so quiet!!

Today I want to catch up on some birthday cards that I've created using the new Winnie & Walter Cutaways!!  I wasn't able to participate in "A Week to Die for" on the W&W blog because of our trip to Montana...but I've done a few "make-up" cards in the past few days!

My first card is stamp free, focusing on three different sets of Cutaways!  I chose a rainbow color theme...which you know is one of my all-time favorites!  Check it out:
Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
  2. Diecut the scallop trim from rainbow colored cardstocks.
  3. Layer the scallop trim cuts to the bottom half of the card, then trim the excess.
  4. Diecut the word "happy" from purple dotted paper.
  5. Adhere it with foam dots to the top of the scallop trim.
  6. Diecut the word "birthday" from white glittered cardstock.
  7. Adhere it slightly overlapping the bottom of the word "happy". 
  8. Accent with jewels to finish.

Challenges:

Supplies:



**The white glitter cardstock is not linked above.  I purchased it from the scrapbooking paper section at Michael's, and is branded as Recollections.**


My next card uses layers of stamping & heat embossing, plus some beautiful flourished jewel trims & some confetti cuts.  I love how it turned out!!
Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
  2. Stamp & heat emboss the larger sparkles directly to the card front.
  3. Stamp & heat emboss the smaller sparkles over top of the larger ones.
  4. Stamp & heat emboss the stardust over top of the layered sparkles.
  5. Layer two strips of jeweled trim diagonally to the card front.
  6. Embellish the stamped sparkles with large jewels.
  7. Diecut the banner from white cardstock.
  8. Stamp & heat emboss the word "sparkle" twice.
  9. Finish the sentiment in black ink, then adhere the banner to the front.
  10. Diecut the confetti from white glitter cardstock & layer to the top of the trim.

My final card looks a little different from the first two, and uses a colored card base & some patterned papers.  It's fun & festive & I think you'll like it!  Check it out:
Instructions:
  1. Make A2 card from red cardstock.
  2. Diecut the background paper & adhere to the card front.
  3. Cut 4 2-inch squares from patterned paper, and layer to the front.
  4. Diecut the circle from patterned paper, & adhere to the middle.
  5. Tuck stickers into the top & middle of the patterned blocks.
  6. Diecut the word "happy" from navy cardstock & adhere to the top.
  7. Add letter stickers to the top & stamp the word "day" below it to finish the sentiment.
  8. Add a wood veneer birthday cake below the sentiment.
  9. Add a star sticker & arrow sticker to the wood veneer.
  10. Diecut the confetti from white glittered paper & adhere to the top.
  11. Embellish with enamel dots to finish.

Challenges:

Supplies:



**The white glittered cardstock, enamel dots & wood veneer are not linked above.  I purchased the cardstock from the scrapbooking paper section at Michael's, and is branded as Recollections.  I believe the wood veneer & enamel dots came from a past kit, but am unsure of the company or month.  Sorry I can't be of much more help on those items.**

Whew...I know that was A LOT of cards & content to look over in one blog post.  Thanks for sticking it out & I really hope that you like them!!  Have a great rest of your Tuesday!

Until later,
