Hidden Belated Birthday Message
Hello, crafty friends! Seeka here and today I'm sharing a card featuring the sweet Library Card Stamp & Cut XL set. This set makes me feel so nostalgic for my childhood library; I can still feel the extra tug it took to pull out tight wood card catalog drawers, and I can hear the sound of the librarian stamping due dates!
I began by die cutting the library card out of Dove White cardstock and the card sleeve out of Paradise cardstock. I assembled the sleeve by folding along the score lines and using double-sided tape to adhere the side flaps to the back of the sleeve.
Next, I stamped the details of the library card in Onyx Pigment ink. Using Rose Madder Bold ink, I stamped the "you" sentiment at the top of the card, as well as the hidden "A belated happy birthday" sentiment at the bottom of the card. For the "overdue" sentiment, I used Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink and White Embossing Powder to heat emboss the word onto a piece of Paradise cardstock.
To assemble the card, I began by using Precision Glue to adhere the card sleeve onto the background. Then I adhered the flowers and leaves using small adhesive dots and added the "overdue" sentiment with foam tape. Next, I used more foam tape to adhere the card front to a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of Pebble cardstock, which I in turn adhered to a Dove White card base. Finally, I slid the library card into the sleeve.
Thank you so much for visiting!
