Hi everyone, this is Yana Smakula, welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video!

Yippee for Yana: Flip Up Birthday Card

In this episode, I’m showing how to make a flip up interactive masculine Birthday Card featuring simple stamping and partially cutting techniques!

I used a new stencil from Simon Says Stamp, Confetti, it’s a fabulous one to create some cool confetti-like backgrounds for Birthday and party cards. You probably think this stencil doesn’t look like much at a first glance, but often it’s the simplest things that pack the most punch and so it this stencil.

I did some simple ink blending using ink blending tools and several colors of inks from Simon – Duckling, Mint, Maliblue, Audrey Blue.

To avoid having the exact same pattern on my paper when blending 4 different colors of ink, I’m flipped my stencil to the other side and rotated it 90 degrees. If you want you can turn your stencil and flip it up to 8 times to have different ink blending for each layer. Imagine using all sorts of different colors for your confetti background and maybe also using texture or glitter pastes and even embossing powders.

Next, I stamped a big sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set in the center of my ink blended background. I love block style sentiments, they are perfect to take center stage on a card! I first stamped it in Audrey Blue ink, next offset slightly and stamped in black.

I trimmed my panel to 4 x 5 ¼” and used a rectangle die to die-cut a partial panel in my background. Watch my video tutorial for a detailed how-to.

Finally, I used foam adhesive tape to adhere my panel to an A2 light blue card base. I only added adhesive to the sides of the panel, not to the flap itself and I need to be able to open it up. Next, I stamped the image of a cake and additional sentiment on the card base directly behind the flip up pane. I used a white pen to color the cake.

Have fun stamping!
