Hello there! Daniel West, here, with a fun ink-blended birthday card featuring the HB2U Word Die as a focal point. Today, I shared a video on how to make this card on the Picket Fence YouTube channel. You can check it out here.
To create this card, I first laid down a rainbow of inks through the Flowers Stencil with Life-changing Blender Brushes over an A2-sized panel of white cardstock. I used Catherine Pooler Inks -- Glitz, Rockin' Red, Flirty Fuchsia, Suede Shoes and Grass Skirt.
Next, I die cut the HB2U Word Die, three times out of white cardstock and stacked them together with Bearly Art Glue.
After that, I ran the stacked die cuts through my Creative Station Lite to add a layer of dry adhesive on the back. This basically turned them into a sticker so the adhesive doesn't warp the vellum.
Using a pencil, I traced the outline of the HB2U Word Die onto some vellum and cut out the image with a pair of snips. I laid down my HB2U sticker onto the front of it and then ran it all through the sticker maker again.
Next, I adhered the vellum and die cuts onto the front of the stenciled panel. And I glued that panel onto the front of an A2-sized card base.
Then, I added a sentiment strip by heat-embossing in white embossing powder, the first three word of a sentiment from the Lots of Christmas Cheer Stamp Set onto some Pitch Black Cardstock.
To finish it all off, I glued down some Iridescent Moonshine Sequins to the front with Bearly Art glue.
I hope you enjoyed this fun and easy card project. It's a great way to mass-produce a really fun design. If you're feeling inspired and would like to purchase any of the items I used to create this card, you will find a list of items in the grid below.
Have a wonderful week.
