Hope everyone on the east coast survived Snow Storm Jonas, we only had about 2″ of snow here north of Pittsburgh. I’ve been watching the weather channel off and on and my heart goes out to all the people impacted by the storm. My brother in New Jersey has quite a bit of snow, they’ll be spending today digging out. This summer we visited Wildwood New Jersey and it just breaks my heart to see all the flooding there. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those impacted by this storm.
Today’s card is the birthday card for my god-daughter Kenzi, she turns 18. This year she will graduate from high school and decide on which college she will attend, both her sisters went to Wittenberg, wonder if that’s where she will go, only time will tell?
Here is a picture of Kenzi with my Aunt Helen and Uncle Jerry, but known to her as grandma & grandpa at Senior Night for her Soccer Team this fall.
Now on to the card, the Party with Cake bundle and Large Number Framelits Die are the featured products for the card. On the outside I used a piece of It’s My Party Designer Series Paper and Circle Framelit to create the opening for a shaker card filled with multi colored sequins from my stash. The Happy Birthday is one of the dies from the Party Pop-Up Thinlits, after running through the Big Shot I just snipped off the ends and glued the image to the window sheet. The card base is Sahara Sand and there is a mat of Melon Mambo behind the designer series paper. For the inside I used the other die in the set and ran through using Whisper White card stock (not the thick choice, just didn’t come out right when I did it). I backed the cut out image with Melon Mambo cardstock. The Large Numbers Framelits were used to die cut the 18 and all sentiments are from the Party with Cake Stamp Set. The Party Pop-Up Thinlits and Party with Cake Stamp set can be purchased as a bundle for a savings of 15% – this set with the Large Numbers is a must have for all people who love to make birthday cards, the thinlits make doing a pop-up card super easy!
Here is the inside, which is much easier than it looks, just make sure the arrows on the die match up to the fold when you run it through the big shot. Another hint – have the fold on the “peak” side, just seems to work better that way.
Thank you for stopping by today, hope you liked my card. Click on any of the images to place an on-line or for more product information. Have a great day, Craft On!
