Sweet Citrus Zesty Birthday

Today’s colorful card sends Zesty Birthday wishes using the Sweet Citrus Stamp Set and coordinating hybrid embossing folder/dies set. The hybrid embossing folder with the coordinating dies helps create cards that look complicated but really aren’t complicated at all. The embossing folder/die combo does all the hard work! The card is one created in a previous card class and the designer series paper background has since been discontinued. However, you can easily substitute with another paper or stamp and create your own background paper if the paper. Have fun creating this Sweet Citrus Zesty Birthday card!

FYI…this is the perfect card to accompany a drink kit for the margarita lover! 🙂

Watch how to recreate the Sweet Citrus Zesty Birthday card in the video below…

Fun with Decorative Masks

Let’s have some fun with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks.  You’ll find the decorative masks on page 65 in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up! It’s easy to overlook them but don’t!  There’s lots you can do with the masks to create a variety of card fronts.  I have created samples using two different Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative masks. Plus, you’ll see two different options for using the masks.  One option uses a large floral mask to create a focal point for a card front and the other option uses the repeating small flower design to create a background.  A list of materials for creating the cards is below, as well as, an assembly video.  You’ll see how easy it is to create beautiful cards with the decorative masks.
