This is a 5 x 7 card. I used Grand Dome 3D Card – 3D Vignettes to cut the shape of the wood grain and red papers. However, it's a bit short for a 5 x 7 card so I cut the curved top and part of sides. To do that, I placed the base plate over the upper part of the die only, the part I wanted to be cut.
Next, I cut the circle using circle die from Grand Dome 3D Card – 3D Vignettes. To align it, I used the decorative die as a placement guide. I removed it before cutting.
I decided to use a red mat behind the wood grain. I cut the paper as I wanted it along bottom and sides. Then I placed die from Grand Dome 3D Card – 3D Vignettes at top. I used wood grain piece that was already cut as a guide. I cut only the very top part, curved edge, by putting base plate over that area only.
Next I aligned the circle. I discovered the circle die from Spellbinders Layered Happy Birthday – 3D Vignettes was just a little smaller than circle cut in wood grain paper.
I used it to cut circle in red paper which gave me a narrow reveal of red.
I stamped the images on Kraft paper and fastened it behind circle opening. I fussy cut the man and balloon to pop up with 3D Foam Squares. I added a string from balloon. The verse is popped up with Thin 3D Foam Squares.
I hand cut the black matt at the curve/top edge. Straight edges were cut with paper cutter.
It's fastened with E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser to Kraft card front which was stamped along the edges.
"Birthday" was stamped on Kraft paper label (cut with die from Oh Happy Day – Elegant 3D Vignettes) that had been stamped with text. I trimmed the edges and fastened it to a black tag. "Happy" was cut from red paper fastened to black 3D Creative Sheets. This is a little tricky but I sure like the raised effect! Twine is knotted at tag ends. A bit of red was added at right edge under tag.
Oh, I rounded the top card corners with 1/2 inch corner rounder.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a creative day!
