About Me

My photo
My name is Natalie and I love anything to do with card/paper. I have been a papercrafter for many years now and I never get bored playing with all the wonderful products available. I've been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 35years now and we are still very much in love with each other as the first day we met each other. We have 3 wonderful children and 5 gorgeous grandchildren so we have lots to be thankful for. Since joining Stampin' Up! in 2018 I've grown so much in confidence with myself and I even tackle technology, which for me is a huge step to have taken, but I'm getting there slowly.

Craftalong Tuesday - Pansy Petals/ Happy Birthday card

Hello again everyone and welcome to another Craftalong Tuesday. I hope all of you are keeping well and enjoyed the bank holiday weekend that we have just had here in the UK.

Ice cream  Corner Sprinkles
3 x yellow ones for the centres of the pansies

Evening Evergreen classic stampin' pad

Card Instructions

Fold and burnish the card base using the bone folder.
Stamp the inside of card image onto the white layer and glue to the card.
Stamp the sentiment onto the die cut white tag and then using the ribbon piece tie the two tags together and put a glue dot in between them just to keep them secure when on the card.
After die cutting 1 x large pansy, 2 x small ones and 3 x leaves give them a slight curve using the bone folder and then using a small amount of glue in the centre of each of them
 (reverse side) attach them to the tags. Slide the leaves under the flowers where they need
 to go and add a small amount of glue to hold them in place.
Apply small dots of glue to the inside of the pansies and using the take your pick tool attach the 3 small ice cream sprinkles.
Using a glue dot attach the cute Bumble Bee trinket onto the corner of the vellum tag.
Now using the embossing folder (that to me looks a bit like a basket weave), and emboss the front of card layer having the embossing folder laying flush with the bottom end of card. Attach the dsp strip using glue along the top of the embossed section covering up the line impression that has been left. Glue this whole piece to the front of the card.
Using dimensionals attach the tags to the card and that's the card finished for today. 
Hope you enjoyed the card, I made two other cards the same but just used the other two colours from the new in colours just to show you what they looked like.
