Birthday Card Making Contest 2014

Project Description

What inspired your paper craft project? Other Tell us more about what inspired you. I was inspired to make a little something special to celebrate's birthday - Congratulations on 3 years on the internet!

What you will need

  • I put some design elements I've never used before on this CAS (Clean and Simple) card - this was my first time making a pop-up card (thanks btw for the blog tutorial)
  • first time sewing on card stock
  • first time using the masking technique
  • and first time using my distress inks to make an ombre stained background. I used some adorable stamps by Penny Black
  • Lawn Fawn and My Favorite Things and used dies by Spellbinder
  • Simon Says Stamps
  • and MFT. As usual - I put my copic markers to work to color my images. I find that the little details often make the difference and I therefore used my handy little scissors to fussy cut things out like I do on many of my cards. My pictures didn't really pick-up on the fact that the airplane has CRAFTSY.COM printed on the side - but since this card was inspired by Craftsy's birthday... I figured... why not really dedicate the card to the occasion. If you want to see the pop-up card in action or want more information on the supplies I used
