Happy Birthday from your younger friend

I have created a card I am super proud of. While this card is a simple blended back ground, a lot work went into the Happy Birthday Sentiment. As it turns out I do not have any Happy Birthday dies. So I decided to make the sentiment in Canvas Workspace, this works with the Brother Scan N Cut.

Now creating a sentiment is not difficult, but to get it to be all or mostly all one word you have to type each letter one by one then put them right up to or slightly overlap them so that when you click that weld button it becomes one pieces. That is not a particularly fun task for me lol. But I stuck with it then cut was able to easily cut out 4 layers and glued them all together. The part that took the longest was picking the font, I take FOREVER to pick fonts! Just for fun I added a small back matte dot for the dot on the i.

For the back ground I pulled out Distressed Oxide Inks Wilted Violet, Ripe Persimmon, and Scattered Straw. I was not 100 % sure about the combo until I blended it out, then I LOVED it. I used mint tape to give the white border around the blended area, then placed the Spellbinders Star Bright Stencil on to of the blended background. I am really glad I remembered to order the Scrapbook.com Mint Tape when I was ordering the Spellbinders Star Bight Stencil. I ended up with really clean lines around the edge! A little crooked but that was me not the tape. I used my Stampin’ Up! Whisper White pigment ink to add the star background. I am looking forward to using this stencil on other projects.

The Causal Taglines from Essentials by Ellen sentiment stamp has some really fun and playful sentiments. When I prepped the sentiment for the card I posted Monday I heat embossed the enter stamp so I could chop it all at once. In theory this was a great idea, great way to have stuff ready and on hand…in theory. When I glued the sentiment stirps down I glued them in the wrong order, and did not even notice until I was getting ready to do pictures. Lucky it was an easy fix, I heat embossed another strip with the beautiful Black Ebony WOW! embossing powder. I added some glue and put them right on top of the mixed up sentiment strips!
