Super Boy Birthday Card


Couldn't resist and thought I would share this birthday card I made for our Grandson.  He will be turning 3!  Can't believe how fast time goes by....

I immediately had this idea to create a Slider Card when I saw this Stamp Set and Thin Cuts from our new Seasonal Expression Catalog. 

Supplies Used:

I was shown a slider card at a weekend crop a few years back.  The slider cut was manipulated using my cricut machine from one of the wavy borders from a tag. I used a penny and attached it with a narrow piece of 3-D foam tape to fit in the slider slot.  To give the sliding penny room to move, I double stacked the 3-D Foam tape. 

Hope this helps - enjoy!

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Blushing Backgrounds


Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling

I am so happy that you hopped over from Sarah Devendorf's Blog which means you are on the right path. 

For this month's Technique Blog, I created a Desk Top calendar using a template for an Easel Card. The supplies I used to create this project are:
Cardstock: Lagoon, Glacier and White Daisy
Emerald Ribbon (retired) 

Instructions to Make Easel Calendar Base:
  1. Cut a 5" x 6" White Daisy Cardstock and 6" x 10" White Daisy Cardstock
  2. Using a scoring board, score the 6" x 10" cardstock at the following marks - 5" and 7.5". 
  3. Fold the middle scored section in half; then fold the smaller scored section down/forward. 
  4. Adhere your 5" x 6" base to the front of the easel card on the bottom half. (this is the part you folded down/forward)
The calendar was printed from the Internet and matted on the Glacier Cardstock and Lagoon Cardstock.  The matted pieces were adhered to the Make Waves Paper and attached to the 5" x 6" White Daisy Cardstock base.

I used our new Number Thin Cuts to cut the Year "2018" with White Daisy Cardstock.  Using the "In the Background" of your choice - I chose the dots using the Pansy Stamp Ink Pad. The bottom section with the year is matted with Lagoon Cardstock. The Purple Polka Dot Paper from Make Waves Paper is matted on the Glacier Cardstock and popped up.  This helps the top portion to stay in place. 

I hope you are enjoying all the inspiration on the blog hop.  Your next stop is Amy Ulen's Blog.
