Card A Day Blog Post: Birthday

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by. Here's another post for the Card A Day Blog. This week's theme is, Birthday.

I started off with a 5.5" x 4.25" white card base. I then cut a piece of green card stock at 5.25" x 4" cut out a star with my Cuttlebug, and the next to the largest star die form the star Spellbinders set that I have, and embossed it with a star embossing folder. Before attaching this piece to my card, I traced the star on the white card base, so I could use it as a guide for my ribbon.

Before I added my ribbon, I ran my ATG gun around and across the star to ad adhesive for the ribbon to stick to, then I added ribbon, running it diagonally across the star tracing.

I then added a strip of ribbon along the bottom of the green star cardstock, then attached it over the ribbon with dimensional tape to lift it a bit above the card base. I stamped the words, Happy Birthday on a piece of white card stock, cut it to size, inked the edges with green ink, then added this piece to the middle of the ribbon.

I love this technique, I have used it a few times with different shapes. I hope you have the chance to let me know what you think of my card, by leaving me a comment, I always love to hear what everyone thinks of the things I make.
