Oh my goodness, what a stressful morning I’ve had. The internet has been cutting in and out for hours and so I’d better make this quick. Today’s Simple Sunday project is a striking birthday card with a Glimmer Paper accent.
I started with this stunning design from the Magnolia Lane 12″ x 12″ Designed Series Paper (DSP) pack.
First I cut a layer and used Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) to attach it to a Thick Very Vanilla Card base.
Next I cut a 1″ strip of the DSP and glued it down the right-hand edge of a layer of Very Vanilla Card. Then I fixed this layer inside the card base with liquid glue.
Finally I glued some DSP to the flap of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope. Then using the flap as a guide I cut the DSP to shape with my Paper Snips.
That just left the “happy birthday” sentiment from the Magnolia Blooms Stamp Set. So using Mossy Meadow ink I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card.
Then I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to mount the sentiment onto a layer of Gold Glimmer Paper. Finally I used more Dimensionals to fix the assembled sentiment to the front of my card and I was done.
Phew, #simplestamping doesn’t have to be stressful, just add a little Glimmer Paper. If only sorting out my internet was as easy.
