I needed a card for a friend who is also a Stampin' Up demonstrator, so I knew I needed to step up my game! For this card, I used a Night of Navy Card Stock card base, a 5-1/8" by 3-7/8" Emerald Envy mat, and a 5" by 3-3/4" Whisper White panel. I stamped the large starburst image in Night of Navy Ink onto the Whisper White panel.
Next, I used the Star Blast Edgelit Die to cut the star blast image from Silver Glimmer Paper. I adhered the bottom strip of the die cut to the card using Fast Fuse Adhesive. I find that Fast Fuse works best to adhere our glimmer paper.
I stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment--don't you love that font?!--in Night of Navy onto a 3-1/2" by 1-3/4" piece of Whisper White Card Stock. I adhered this to a 3-3/4" by 1-7/8" piece of Emerald Envy Card Stock and added it to the bottom of the card. I wrapped a length of 1/8" Emerald Envy Taffeta Ribbon around the bottom of the glimmer element before adhering everything to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals. I used Glue Dots to adhere the stars (left over from the die cutting) onto the sentiment panel. Cute, huh?
But wait! There's more! I don't normally do "innies" for my cards, but since I had to add a Whisper White panel inside the card so I could sign it, I decided to do something special inside the card, too!
I stamped the "celebrate you" sentiment from the same stamp set in Night of Navy inside the card. I die cut the flourish from the Silver Glimmer Paper and adhered it to the card with the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Finally, I used my two leftover stars inside, too adhering them with glue dots. Sweet!
