Hello Everyone !!! This is Swapna from Magic Paper Pixie . Its Craftangles birthday month .. Yay ! So this months challenge is around all things birthday , confetti and sparkle.
Today I am here with 3 simple birthday cards tutorial. The theme for our Monthly Challenge is ”Birthday/ confetti or sparkle “. Do not forget to join the monthly challenge, we would love to see your take on this theme . Do not forget to click on the link below to see the lovely projects by all wonderful DT members.
All three of my cards are A2 sized, i.e they measure 4.5 inches *5.5 inches.
For the first card , I made a simple card with some watercolors on a watercolor paper . Once the watercolor had almost dried I applied a few gilding flakes to give a little shimmer , and once it was adhered , I brushed off the extra gilding flakes with a stencil brush . Once the panel was dry , I stamped the the zodiac sign stamp on the panel with some black archival ink along with a happy birthday sentiment stamp.
For the second card, I made a simple card with the sweet love stamp set . I stamped the image of the boy, and after coloring the image with comics simply fussy cut the image and pasted it withs some foam tape on a stencilled panel . I used the heartfelt stencil along with some tumbled glass distress oxide .
For the last and final card I made a simple floral card . I only wanted to use the image of the flower buds , hence I masked the image of the full flower and I stamped the bud twice on the stem with Versamark ink . I then embossed it and copic colored the image before adhering it on a distressed watercolored panel and finally on a caramel brown note card .
Here are few pictures of my 3 cards together :
