Hello Friends, Ilda here!
Hopefully, by now you all know how much I love all things crafty, well I love all things rainbow too! So for today’s card, I combined my two loves to create this Crafty Birthday Wishes Card using the new ARSTY TRIMMINGS stamp set and the coordinating ARTSY TRIMMINGS die set from the latest Studio Katia Release.
To begin I stamped out the crafty images from the ARSTY TRIMMINGS set using VersaFine Onyx ink and heat set it with clear embossing powder. I then colored in the crafty images in using Arteza Brush Pens in Rainbow order. Once the paper was dry, I die cut the pieces out using the coordinating ARTSY TRIMMINGS DIES. I then attached each piece to the sides of a Gatefold Card base that I had trimmed the top flaps to allow for the cut details to peek through. I then cut a thin black strip to finish off the edge of the die-cut pieces.
The next thing I did was die cut the Crafty out 3 times (which comes included in the ARTSY TRIMMINGS DIES set), stacked and glued them together. I then cut a strip of white paper about 1- inch in diameter and long enough to wrap around the card to create the belly band. I then wrapped the paper around the card front to figure out where to create the scorelines. I left a bit of a wiggle room on the sides because I will attach the white strip to a wider black strip of paper later on.
Once the band was measured and scored and before I glued the top white strip to the bottom strip I stamped out the sentiments on to the front of what will be the belly band. I used a stamp from the BIRTHDAY GREETINGS set and masked out the crafty while stamping out the sentiment, ensuring I left enough room for the crafty word die that I then glued in place and topped off with Glossy Accents.
To finish off this card I glued down a few of the SILVER FEVER CONFETTI using my favorite new tool the EMBELLISHMENT WAND! Oh, BTW, I didn’t use the blending brushes on the card, they were just crafty props for the photos this time.
I hope you think of this Crafty Rainbow Birthday Wishes Card the next time you need to mail out a crafty friends’ birthday card this year ✀🌈🎂
Thank you for stopping by and until next time… Happy Crafting 👋
