Makeover Monday Video Tutorial- Making A Special Birthday Card

Make-a-special-birthday-cardLet's start the week off with a special birthday greeting for today's cardmaking project.  This card layout is one of my favorites.  It is such a simple one but has a unique twist by angling pieces of card stock behind the main layer.  Here you can see that the contrasting colors used were "copied" from the colors of ink used for the stamped image.

The Oh So Succulent Bundle used here is a favorite from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  There are so many possibilities and combinations with the stamp set and coordinating framelits.  Used separately or together, you'll come up with endless ideas for your springtime crafting.  Succulents are all the rage now in home decor and crafting.  Love that Stampin' Up! is right on trend.

The video below is the card that was the inspiration for today's makeover. You can see the original post about this card HERE. Take a look and then read on for some specifics.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Base is cut 4 1/4" x 11" and scored at 5 1/2".
  • Cut your two layers of neutral card stock at 4" x 5 1/4" and 2 1/2" x 4".
  • Cut the two layers of contrasting card stock 3 " x 4 1/2" and 2 3/4" x 4 1/4".
