Happy Birthday #1

So with a new year comes new projects and my goal for this year is post at least one new project a day. The first project of the year is a Birthday card and now that the Holidays are over it's time to get started working with new products and also showing more than just card making.  I hope everyone is ready for a new adventure exploring stamping, card making, and Scrapbook layouts and maybe even some jewelry making. Now on to the project for today.

Supplies Used:

Stamps:Simon Says Stamp- All Boy, Stampin' Up- Celebrate Today
Paper: Simon Says Stamp May 2014 card kit- Green card stock, Fancy Pants- Be Different Collection,  Canvas Home Basics- Greeting Card with envelopes (5"x7") and SU Whisper White card stock
Ink: VersaMark, Memento Tuxedo Black, SU- Old Olive Blendabilities, and SU Stampin' Write In-Color markers
Other: Anit-static bag, MME- enamel dots, SU Dimensionals, ATG tape runner, SU Gold Embossing powder

1. Start with a 5"x7"  Canvas pre-made card.  Fold on the score line.
2. Prepare a slightly smaller piece of the Green card stock for heat embossing by wiping the Anti-static bag over it.  Position the greeting stamps where you want them on a stamping block and ink up with VersaMark.  Cover with Gold embossing powder then heat to melt.  Using ATG tape runner, adhere the panel to the card base.
3. Cut down a square piece of card stock from the Fancy Pants paper to fit the open space between the greetings and adhere to the center of the green panel. I used three enamel dots and sprinkled them over the card front.
4. Stamp the Controller in Memento Black ink on White card stock and color using Blendabilities and Stampin' Write markers.  Fussy cut the controller and pop up with 2 Dimensionals in the bottom right corner.
 For the inside of the card I used the same green card stock cut slightly smaller than the base and a small strip of of the same Fancy Pants paper and adhered them with the ATG tape runner.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and please check back often for inspiration.
