Now let’s join Ilina, who is sharing another beautiful card created with this month's kit!
Hi everyone, Ilina here and I am sharing some inspiration using the February My Monthly Hero kit! I love this month's kit, as it focuses on birthdays and it can be used also way beyond birthdays.
For my card today I used the smaller fill-in rectangle stamp included in the kit. To make the card stamp the image twice on Dove White cardstock. Color the elements and die cut the balloons and flowers using the coordinating dies from one of the stamped panels. To cut out the mirrored image balloon, since there are no coordinating dies, I flipped over my stamped image and used my window to line up the die on the back side. I ran it this way through my die cutting machine and was able to cut out the mirror image.
Stamp, color and die cut the cake image. Set aside. Die cut the full panel using Rounded Rectangle Infinity Dies and adhere the die cut elements with foam adhesive. Stamp sentiment on vellum and emboss in white. Cut to size and wrap around the panel.
Die cut a larger rounded rectangle from Peony cardstock. Stamp "Happy Birthday" sentiment over it repeatedly using Clear Embossing and Watermark ink. Assemble the card and adhere to Dove White side folded notecard.
