Wishing You An Adventurous Birthday

My good friend is an avid kayaker and paddle boarder and I just knew I had to make a card for her birthday. When a card by Tami White, I couldn’t wait to adapt it for my friend. I love how Tami used Window Sheets to create water and the Diorama Dies for the waters edge is brilliant. I can’t wait to send this card.

Let’s Create

  1. Affix all stamps to Acrylic Blocks.
  2. Fold the Card Base in half using a Bone Folder to sharpen the crease.
  3. Run the 5 1/2″ w x 4 1/4″ h Coastal Cabana through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Diorama Die. And then run it through with the Stripes Embossing Folder.
  4. Attach the Window Sheet to the back of the die cut and embossed Coastal Cabana panel using Tear N’ Tape.
  5. On the Basic White Thick Cardstock, stamp the kayak image with Tuxedo Black ink and color. I used:
    1. Real Red Light and Dark for the kayak
    2. Balmy Blue Light and Dark for the shirt
    3. Soft Suede Light and Dark for the Oar
    4. Daffodil Delight Light and Dark for the Hat.
    5. With Basic Black Dark, I added hair.
  6. Use Paper Snips to cut out the kayak and Stampin’ Dimensionals to attach the kayak to the Window Sheet.
  7. Arrange the Window Sheet layer on top of the Card Base and use a pencil to make a light mark on the card front below the oars.
  8. Remove the Window Sheet Layer and use Coastal Cabana Ink to stamp ripples where you marked on the card front.
  9. Attach the Window Sheet layer to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  10. To the left of the 1″ h x 3 1/6″ w Basic White layer, stamp your sentiment in Real Red.
  11. Wrap some Linen Thread around the right side of the sentiment tag and tie a bow.
  12. Attach the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals, being careful to avoid Dimensionals over the Window Sheet.
  13. Sprinkle on some Fine Sparkle Adhesive Gems.
  14. Stamp and decorate the inside and attach with Stampin’ Seal.
  15. Decorate your envelope.
  16. So adventurous! Now put it in the mail.
