D2BA | Pop Up Card and Gift For The Best Dad

Hello everyone! Father’s Day is on June 20th this year. Today, I wanna share an idea for the Father’s Day card and gift card holder.

I created this slide pop up card using the Pop Up Feature Die. It is one of my favorites from the newly released products at D2BA store. Visit D2BA Blog for more inspiration and detail for Masculine theme projects and you can play along with this month challenge, too.

For the patterned papers, I used couple of the papers from the All The Buzz Collection Variety Pack. This variety papers pack is super adorable! They are not only can be used for Spring, but also Summer and masculine style projects. 

I also used the new Rectangle Framelit Dies to create the tag that I added on the back of the pop up panel as the pull-up tag. I added the gift card on the tag using removable glue dot.

I cut a piece of heavyweight white cardstock using the label die from the new Slim Mini Wavy Layers Die and then I stamped the sentiments from the new Special Family Stamp Set with black ink pad using my Mini MISTI. I added the sentiment label on the front pop up panel with 3D foam tape.

I cut out couple of the bees from one of the pattern paper with scissors and then I added it on the card with couple 3D foam tape.

I love how it turned out. This card will fit in a regular A2 card envelope and not bulky to send out using regular postage.

That’s my card for today and I hope this give you an idea to make a special handmade card and gift for The Father’s Day.  Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.

D2BA | Masculine Birthday Slimline Card

Hello hello hello everyone! The month of June is mostly associated with Summer, Father’s Day, Ice Cream, or anything that sounds fun in the sun. Today, I wanna share with you all this masculine birthday slimline card idea.

This June D2BA Challenge theme: Masculine and I thought of making this slimline card with the masculine theme. For me, masculine card is always a challenge to make but I had fun making this one.

This masculine birthday slimline card is pretty simple to make. I used the fun patterned papers from Ice Cream Social Collection Variety Pack for the background and raccoons, along with the Raccoon Party Stamp Set, Raccoon Party Die Set, and Retro Slimline Background Die.

I cut put a grey cardstock with the first layer of the Retro Slimline Background Die and I added it on the card base with the permanent adhesive runner. After that, I cut out a a white cardstock using the second layer of the background die and then I added some 3D foam tape on it and I added it on a piece of that sprinkle pattern paper and trimmed around it with scissors (or you can pre-cut the patterned paper with the dimension of that die). I added the whole panel on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

Next, I cut those 3 raccoons from the patterned paper using the Raccoon Party Die Set. This die set is not only matching die to the stamp set, but also to the pattern papers which is awesome that we can use both ways. After cutting those raccoons, I added them on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

I stamped the sentiment from the Raccoon Party Stamp Set on a white cardstock with black ink pad and I used the label die from Wavy Slimeline Framelit Dies. I did partial die cut for each side to get the dove tail for short label. I added it on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

I hope this birthday slimline card give you an idea to join our D2BA June Challenge. Head over to D2BA Blog to see more inspiration for masculine cards from the design team.

Graciellie Design’s 7th Anniversary | Hello Mixed Media Slimline Card

HAPPY 7th ANNIVERSARY TO GRACIELLIE DESIGN and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO GRACIE!!! Today we are celebrating these two special events with an Instagram Hop!

Join the hop for lots of inspiration from the design team, lots of chances to win the amazing prizes from the generous sponsors. Head over to Gracie’s Instagram and my Instagram @helengdesigns to start the hop!

And here’s my card for this celebration day that I created using the beautiful Magnolia Branch Mega Bundle digital stamp and Botanical Dream digital paper pack.

I love working with digital stamp. When I want to make a batch of cards, I can use the Print-and-Cut feature from Silhouette Studio and cutting it with my Silhouette Cameo machine. But today, I simply just printed the magnolia branch image on a white cardstock using inkjet printer and then I colored it with pencil colors and colorless blender pencil.

After I fussy cut it with scissors, I put it in my spraying box and sprayed it with metallic silver spray for extra shine on the magnolia branch. I dried it with craft heater.

For the background card, I printed one of the pattern from the Botanical Dream digital paper pack on white cardstock in 8.5 x 11 size. Yeah… I printed the full page. It might sound taking so much ink, but I can cut the whole page to make 2-3 cards. I cut it in the size of slimline card and added it on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

I cut the black frame using 2 dies from the D2BA Rectangles Slimline Framelit Dies and I added it on the card with permanent adhesive runner.

Next, I printed the sentiment from the same Magnolia Branch Mega Bundle digital stamp on a white cardstock and then I cut it with one of the D2BA Rectangle Fancy Framelit Dies.

I put both magnolia branch image and sentiment label on the card with 3D foam tape for extra dimensional. And then, I added some white acrylic paint splatters on the card.

I hope this card sparks a little fresh idea for you to create today… Thanks for stopping by!

Dare 2B Artzy | Anything Is Popsicle

Hello artzy friends! March is here. Anything is popsicle, right? Today, I wanna share this pun fun fold card.

This card is easy to make and I share the details at Dare 2B Artzy blog today. I use the new Raccoon Party Stamp set and matching die set, also the new Ice Cream Social Papers Variety Pack.

I used Neenah white cardstock 80 lbs for the pop up card base. It is perfect size for a card base. I cut the cardstock using the cardstock with Wavy Square Fun Fold Die. I cut the pattern papers for the background mats using paper trimmer and added on the card base with permanent adhesive runner. I cut one of the patterned paper with Wavy Squares Framelit Die and I added on the front card with 3D adhesive.

For the sentiment, I stamped it on a white cardstock with the black ink pad, and then I cut it with the label die from Wavy Slimline Framelit Dies. I added it in the inside card with 3D foam tape. This will make the sentiment pop up and hold the front panel up.

I stamped the raccoon with popsicle image with VersaFine Clair Nocture on a white cardstock, dried the ink, and then color it with Arteza EverBlend markers. After that, I added some glittler on it with Wink Of Stella clear glitter brush. I dried the glitter with craft heater. 

After I cut the raccoon image with the matching die, I added it on top of the wavy square mat with permanent adhesive runner.

This card is fold flat enough and can be sent using regular mail postal stamp, too. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. Have a wonderful day!
