Plaid Happy Birthday

Hi there,
Shona here with you again today to share a different kind of card for me, i.e. no glitter or flocking!


The die I used today is a fraction of it's original price. So grab it now if you can! I hadn't realized that when making this card. It is much bigger than I had thought it was too.



First, I stamped the plaid background from Concord & 9th in Versafine Clair Charming Pink. I used my Stamp Platform to do this to get good coverage. 


Re-inking and stamping three times, gave a nice even result.


Once it was dry, I die cut the Die-Versions Happy Birthday Solo Sentiments die from the middle of it, being careful that I didn't lose any of the little negative pieces. Then I ran black cardstock through with the same die.


A piece of Super Adhesive Tape was stuck to the back of the plaid negative piece and the black Happy Birthday outline was placed in the sticky space. The little plaid pieces were inserted into their respective spots. I neglected to take a photo of that ... my bad!


The plaid piece was then popped up with little mounting foam strips, but I moved it all slightly intentionally to the left.


Another "Happy Birthday" was die cut from another piece of black cardstock that would be used as the layer on top of the card base. This was then taped again slightly to the left so that it achieved more dimension.


The black piece was then layered to a white card base and then the focal panel was taped on top. A piece of black and white cord was tied around the top of the card to finish it off.


Here are the products that I used in my project today: 

Concord & 9th Plaid Background Stamp
Super Adhesive Sheet
Mounting Foam
Black and White cord

We have some exciting news to share with you. Dies R Us now has a sister store with warehouses located in the USA and Canada called Didi Crafts ((https://www.didicrafts.com/).
It will ship to both the US and Canada. Didi Crafts will carry some of the same products as DRU, but most will be different. Now our Canadian friends don't have to worry about huge taxes or shipping fees. How great is that!?!
