Using the Same Word Die Two Ways – Birthday Cards

Hi everyone! I made some fruity birthday cards using the positive and negative created using the Happy Birthday To You Die from My Favorite Things (discontinued). This is a great way to make multiple cards with minimal supplies and not waste anything. This paper I uses can be found on page 14 of the new Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Whisper White 8-1/2″ X 11″ Thick Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 10″ and scored at 5-1/2″ to make a card base and a piece of Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP to 4-1/4″ x 4-3/4″. I also cut the front of the card to 4-3/4″ long.

I diecut the sentiment from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP using Happy Birthday To You Die from My Favorite Things (discontinued) and adhered a piece of Blackberry Bliss 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock to the back of it and adhered both to card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue. I saved the positive letters that were diecut with the die to use on my next card.

To add a pop of color behind the front panel and to the inside, I cut a piece of Garden Green 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock and adhered it on the right side of the card inside. Next, I fussycut images from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP and adhere them to the front of the card, popping up two of them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I finished it by adding some Love From Lizi White Pin Stripe Peel-offs.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up! Well Said Stamp Set with Poppy Parade Ink and a fussycut a strawberry from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP.

I adhered the letters for the sentiment to the card with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue. Tip: To easily aand perfectly dhere the sentiment, cut a scrap piece of the sentiment and tape it down to the card suing low-tack tape. Then adhere your letters in the negative space. You won’t need to try to space out or align the letters.

Next, I fussycut some fruit and leaf images from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP and adhered them to the card. I finished it off by adding some Pearl Basic Jewels.
