Have A Sweet Birthday!

Hi bloggers!! TGIF! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and going into lots of fun plans for the weekend! I’m always thrilled to bring you an exclusive card from our pal and designer extraordinaire, Jess Larsen!  Enjoy!

From the designer:

When I am feeling in a rut, or the inspiration just isn’t happening, there is one thing I can always turn to for a quick, easy and great looking card — the Simon Says Stamp Tri Square die. You can cut it twice on a card front, or just once. You can use it horizontally or vertically. You can create peek a boo windows that almost anything looks great under. I find that once I get the creativity flowing, I can branch off and try different things, but sometimes I need that boost and this die is perfect!

For today’s card, I ran the Tri Square die through my Big Shot vertically, on the left hand side of the Kraft card front. I took some Neenah White Cardstock to use underneath the die cut portion and stamped various sweet treats from the Fantastic Birthday set from Hero Arts. Then, I stamped them again on different papers from Lawn Fawn’s Bright Side 6×6 paper pack. I paper pieced the images and layered my diecut panel on top. I added the sentiment “Have a sweet birthday,” also from the Fantastic Birthday set. I finished it off using some Stardust Stickles, Glossy Accents and Enamel Dots.  I filmed a quick video of the process, and I share my favorite way to make paper pieced images pop! Check it out below the card!
