Happy Birthday Easel Card

Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a great Monday. I have had a busy weekend, spending time with my forever working spouse. Weekdays are really busy in our household, so weekends are when we try to reconnect and definitely stay away from technology to spend some much required quality time. Now, let’s get to work!

This card is a wonderful creation that I had the pleasure of making. I had recently won a lovely giveaway by Joy Clair Designs. Do check her website out and see the lovely clear and digi stamps she has.

I have used multiple brands to make this card-

  • Round Circle die: Gina Marie Designs
  • Star-fetti: Fun Stampers Journey
  • Happy Birthday die: Elizabeth Craft Designs
  • Teacup: Joy Clair digital stamp
  • Star Die: Fun Stampers Journey
  • Sentiment: Hampton Arts Stamps
  • Clear Acetate: Michaels Store

I made this card because I got influenced by seeing one of the YouTube videos by Jennifer McGuire, where she laminates two acetate sheets with glitter in the middle to make backgrounds. I thought that was simply marvelous; but I don’t have a laminate machine so thought I’d old-school it 🙂

Here, you can see I just cut two pieces of acetate sheets and layed the star confetti and sealed it with double-sided tape. That’s it. After that, I die cut the circle background and again adhered it with double-sided tape.

I used Camel watercolor paints the Joy Clair teacup and then fuzzy cut it.

Initially, I wanted this card to have a postcard feel to it, because I didn’t want the transparency to get concealed. But, I changed my mind – as I often do!! I thought an easel card would best serve both the see-through-ness and also be a greeting card.

Voila, there you have it. This card was a transitional one. But, I am super happy with the end result. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below.

I am entering it to the following challenge:

I appreciate you spending time here with me. See you soon!
