Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. When you can make two cards in one go it is a win win surely! What's more this design can lend itself to so many styles and occasion by just a switch of the colour scheme or sentiment or cover plate die! For this card, I've kept it very simple for you and there is no stamping need in this 2 for 1 card making project! So let's get started!

Written and photos Two cards at once: 

To start off, use an Altenew Ink Blending tool to blend a soft blue ink to the bottom third of a white card panel. Remember to use circular motions for a smooth blend. 
Next, switch up to a  mid shade of blue in the middle third of the panel. To ensure the colour blend, make sure your inks overlap with one another.  Lastly, use a dark shade of blue to add colour to the remaining third at the top of the panel.
Once the blending is complete, use the PinkFresh Studio Simple Diamonds Die to die-cut the panel out. To turn these into cards, place foam pads onto the back of the negative die-cut squares and use the frame to align these onto a white card base. Once these are adhered down, adhere the frame down to another card panel with liquid glue. 
For the sentiments, use the Sentiment Suite: Happy Birthday die set from PinkFresh Studio, cut the main word out of black cardstock. If you have it, add Stick-it! adhesive to the back of the black card before you due it out. Also die-cut the shadow from vellum and adhere the die-cut word on the top. To finish the cards, adhere the sentiments to the front of the card panels and finish off with Morning Dew Crystal Nuvo Drops by Tonic Studios.
