The Birthday Bonanza Suite is just so much fun! I made another card I think you will enjoy. You will see how doable this is if you go step by step.
Sale-a-bration is going on until the end of March. If you purchase the Birthday Bonanza Suite, you can choose a free Sale-a-bration item! If you add on a package of Whisper White Card stock, 2 ink pads and a bottle of Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue, you can choose 2 free items!
Now to start to make this card!
Measurements: Whisper White card stock (CS): 11 x 4 1/4 inches scored at 5 1/2 inches, 5 x 3 3/4 inches and 4 x 2 inches; Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inches and a 3 3/4 x 1 1/4 inch strip of the birthday candle design; and Bermuda Bay CS: 5 x 2 1/2 inches.
Stamp the koala bear in Smoky Slate ink onto the 4 x 2 inch Whisper White CS to the right. You will need your Stampin’ Pierce mat or a catalog to stamp on since this is a Photopolymer stamp.
Use the Memento ink to stamp the toucan and the eyes and nose for the koala.
Finish the toucan by stamping the beak in Mango Melody ink.
Fussy cut the koala and toucan with your paper snips. If you do have a Big Shot or other die cutting machine, use the Bonanza Dies.
Adhere the strip of birthday candles to the bottom of the 5 x 3 3/4 inch Whisper White CS. Position the 1 1/2 inch circle punch as shown to make the bottom port hole.
Position the same punch as shown to make the top port hole.
Continuing with the 1 1/2 inch circle punch, punch 2 circles from the Bermuda Bay CS leaving space around the circle.
Use the 1 3/4 inch circle punch to cut a rim around the smaller circle. This will create a piece to accent the “port holes”.
Tip: To apply the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue to small pieces I use a set of tweezers. That way I do not get (too much) glue on my fingers. It is very easy to position the piece and lay it down without getting glue everywhere.
Now use the Coastal Cabana ink to stamp the sentiment “Happy Birthday” in the upper right corner. Also stamp the square present as shown leaving room to stamp other presents around it. Stamp a square present on a piece of sticky note. Tip: It is easiest to use a full sticky note. Stamp the bow for the square present in Bermuda Bay ink.
Fussy cut the present on the sticky note with your paper snips and use it to cover the present that is stamped on the card front. This is a mask for the Masking Technique.
Stamp the rectangular present in Calypso Coral partially over the masked present. Stamp another onto the sticky note paper. You will use this as a mask too. Stamp the bow for the rectangular present in Cajun Craze ink.
Fussy cut the rectangular present and apply it over the rectangular present on the card front.
Stamp the rectangular present again but turn it vertically. Use Mango Melody ink for the present and Coastal Cabana for the bow.
Remove all the masks. Now you have a pile of presents!
Fold the 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch Whisper White CS at the 5 1/2 inch score line and use the Bone Folder to make the fold crisp. Adhere the 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 inch piece of the Birthday Bonanza DSP to the card front.
Prepare to adhere the stamped port hole piece by applying Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
Adhere the stamped port hole piece to the card front.
Apply a Stampin’ Dimensional to the back of the head of the koala and toucan.
Apply adhesive to the feet of the koala and toucan and place them so they are peeking out of the port holes.
And Viola! You have an adorable birthday card with these cute animals again! See the post before the previous post for another card with the Bonanza Buddies Stamp set.
Thanks for visiting my blog. This blog is geared toward the beginner with an occasional more difficult card. This card would be a more difficult card since it requires more ink colors and uses the Masking Technique.
