Welcome to the September OSAT Blog hop where we’re having a Birthday Bash! Let us inspire your creations for your next birthday celebration.
I’ve used Birthday Fiesta for my creations.
And being me, I wanted to take the images in a different direction.
You can let me know how you think I did.
My card starts with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Sahara Sand cardstock base.
Then, I’ve stamped the streamer image from Birthday Fiesta in Versamark and heat embossed in Gold.
Next, I stamped the llama in Memento Black and cut him out with the coordinating Fiesta Time Framelits. I also stamped an extra blanket image and cut that out by hand. Using the back of my Paper Piercing Tool, I gently rubbed across the back side of the stamped blanket to give it some dimension. Then, it was added to the llama using Dimensionals.
The llama was added to a 2-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ piece of Sahara Sand with Dimensionals. This piece was added to a 2-5/8″ x 2-7/8″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. This focal piece was then adhered with Multipurpose Adhesive to the card front.
Inside, I stamped the sentiment in Momento Black.
Then, I decorated with a couple more Gold embossed streamers.
To finish this card,
I tied a couple of loops of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the card front. Then, I added in a strip of Gold Sequin Trim just before tying the bow.
Ok, but I wasn’t quite done! I pulled out my Envelope Punch Board and made a coordinating envelope. That took ohh…maybe a minute. Then I added Gold embossed streamers to the back flap and a piece of Pop of Pink washi down the left hand side of the front.
Now, we’re celebrating a birthday. So, we need a gift or a favor. I love packaging that can be either.
I created this mini take out style box using the Popcorn Box Thinlits.
The box is made from Sahara Sand cardstock.
I’ve cut it down a smidge and added a lid.
The front and sides are stamped with images from Birthday Fiesta in Memento Black.
I used the streamer die from the Fiesta Time Framelits to cut Gold Glimmer Paper streamers that I attached around the bottom of the box with Multipurpose Adhesive.
On the lid, I used some more of that Pop of Pink washi. Love the black with the flecks of gold! Works so nicely with the overall theme.
Then, I tied a couple of loops of Basic Black Solid Baker’s Twine around the box and tucked in a piece of Gold Sequin Trim.
I’m all ready for the next birthday!
