Good Morning Crafty Friends,

I love the look of less is more, but sometimes I struggle to achieve it. But with big sentiments, that takes the problem away, as their size fills the card front. Also  creating massive impact. I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Giant Happy Birthday To You  Die from Lawn Fawn.

 I came up with three quick ways to change the look.


Giant Happy Birthday To You  Die (Lawn Fawn)

Die Namics Star Dies (MFT) Any Star Dies Would Work

 110lb Card Stock (Neenah)

6 x 6 " Card Blanks Black and White


Card One, Look One

A Rainbow Of Inks (I used Gina K Inks in  Red Hot, Tangerine Twist, Wild Dandelion, Key Lime, Blue Lagoon.)

Blending Brushes

Card Two, Look Two

Glitter Cardstock 

Card Three, Look Three

Pattern Papers


Card One

Die Cut The Sentiment Die 4 Times. 

Also cut any other dies out of Neenah card stock.(Stars)



Then layer three of them on to of each other with liquid glue so you have  wriggle room. This is the basic of all three card examples.

With layer Four, slowly blend your inks in rainbow order, and any other embellishment dies your going to be adding. (stars)

Add to your card blank, the die has four layers so stands out, But I did use sticky pads under the stars.

Card Two

Glitter Cardstock

Exactly same as above but the top layer is cut from Silver Glitter cardstock , instead of the blended rainbow, then mounted on a black card blank.

This one would be great for the males in our life.


Card Three
Patterned Paper
Again same as above cards, except the final layer is pattern paper.
When adding the patterned paper to the three layers of cardstock die cuts hold down them down with an acrylic block until they are die.

I have die cut a few more ready for those quick make cards, when you realise its some ones birthday the next day. (Panic Right)
Just colour, or stick the top layer on and your ready for any ones birthday.

I hope you enjoyed todays blog 

Until Next Week Take Care and Happy Paper Crafting
