Hi friends! We’re excited to welcome back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog with this super fun Birthday card idea showcasing a variety of festive Tim Holtz products! Read on for the details, and enjoy!
Hi there crafty friends! It’s Cheiron Brandon and I am back on the blog today with another fun project using Tim Holtz products. This month I wanted to create a fun and simple birthday card with a pop of color. To begin, I gathered my Tim Holtz Dotted Texture Fades Embossing Folder, the Celebrate Colorize dies and the Alphanumeric Bulletin Alphabet dies.
I cut all my pieces out and embossed a 3 ¾ x 5 panel of Distress Watercolor Cardstock with the Dotted Texture Fade. Before embossing, I misted the paper lightly with water to get the best impression,. I cut the Alphanumeric Bulletin letters from both black and Distress Watercolor cardstocks.
Next, I inked a panel of DIstress Watercolor Cardstocks using Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers and Wilted Violet. I used the banner die from the celebrate set and cut a bunch of banners from my inky panel. Once all of my pieces were cut out, I arranged the banners onto the dotted panel. Then I arranged the H & B onto the card using the t square ruler to line them up and adhered them with foam tape.
Once the letters were lined up, I stamped a sentiment from the Noteworthy stamp set onto a Distress Watercolor Cardstock strip using Black Soot Distress Archival Inks.
To finish the card and give it a bit of sparkle, I cut the sparkles from the Celebrate dies out of Simon Says Stamp Holographic Paper and adhered them to the panel. Once they were dry, I used foam adhesive to adhere the panel to a white notecard and my card is complete. I hope you enjoyed creating this fun and easy card with me today!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
