Hey there! Today I’m on the Mama Elephant Blog for this month’s Designer Series post featuring The Birthday Bash stamp set! I just adore these large image stamps that Mama Elephant keep coming up with, and this one is just absolutely adorable.
Let’s start with the stamped images. I used the large pile of presents and the balloons from The Birthday Bash and an extra present with a chick from Trim the Tree. Only the balloons and chick were die cut out. For the pile of presents you’ll only need to color a section of it and do not die cut this piece.
Next, I took out the Fancy Door Frame Creative Cuts and die cut the frame out of kraft card stock and the door out of white card stock. I used the small hello die cut from Venice Envelope Creative Cuts out of gold mirror card stock. The ‘hello’ was added to the front of the door.
I wanted the birthday sentiment behind the door. I used the ‘happy birthday’ from Garden Frame and the ‘may your happiness multiply’ from Birthday Messages, stamped above the pile of presents.
For assembly, I adhered the image behind the door first. Then, I added the kraft frame to my card base, and inlaid the door in. Then, I added the birthday chick present and balloons to the front of the door with foam tape. And finally, added a single gold nuvo drop to the door handle.
Give it a few minutes for the nuvo drop to dry and you’re set! I gently flared up the little scallop edges in the frame for a little dimension. Isn’t it such a cute little surprise inside? Hope you enjoy today’s dose of inspiration and have a beautiful day!
Very sweet cards!!
