Birch Press Colourful Birhday


Today I am sharing a card tutorial with you that was featured on the Birch Press Design Blog on Tuesday HERE. The Birch Press Design Stackable craft dies make it so easy to create colourful designs that are full of depth and dimension. My card uses Tilter Stackable craft dies. 



Start by choosing shades of cardstock that compliment each other. When using the Stackable dies the card base will be the colour that you see the least amount of, in the case of this card the teal blue is the base. Prepare your card base, then cut one of each of the other cardstock colours in the order you want them to appear using the Tilter Stackable Layers A, B and C. The colour you want to see the most of is your top layer, or Tilter Stackable Layer A.

 
Adhere the layers to the card base. To create the sentiment on this card start by embossing the stamped 'Wishing You A' from Brushed Christmas Greetings on the base colour cardstock and trimming down with a paper trimmer. Then stamp the words 'Happy' and 'Birthday' from Brushed Birthday Greetings on white cardstock using an ink that is closest in colour to the base layer. Die cut those words using the co-ordinating dies.


Splatter the front of the card with white spray ink or white acrylic paint.






Once dry adhere the embossed strip and the Brushed Birthday Greetings stamped words with foam tape in the bottom left of the card front.

Fantastic card, Tracey! I've been eyeing these dies for a while now, but put myself on a budget at least until the end of January. I love the fabulous geometric look these dies create. The possibilities with different papers are endless....I bet they'd be fun with some dp, too. Fantastic card!! Bev
