You Rock! Happy Birthday Cards
For both cards, I stamped the Mix Master Background Stamp in VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I cut each of the backgrounds with a Rectangle Stacklet for both the A4 and Mini Slim Card. The background panels where adhered to an Eggplant card base with TE 1×3 foam strips.
I stamped and cut the sentiments from the Best Mix Ever Stamp Set in Lollipop and Jelly Donut inks and the Best Mix Ever coordinating dies. I added dimension to each of the sentiments by adding a die cut piece of pink and purple fun foam. The white embossed “You’re not old…you’re retro!” sentiment was stamped to the negative cassette piece (in Licorice cardstock) from the A4 Let’s Party card. Then I adhered each of the sentiments at fun angles on each of the cards.
For the records on the Mini Slim Card, I die cut the cassette reel/tape in both Licorice and Sugar Cube cardstock and adhered all of the circles with liquid adhesive to a small licorice die cut. For the heart, star, bolt and music note centers, I used the confetti die from the set in Jelly Donut, Key Lime, Lemon Merringue and Lollipop cardstock.
To create the Let’s Party Mix Tape on the A4 card, I started by die cutting the base pieces from Sugar Cube & Licorice Cardstock plus an Acetate Window layer that I sandwiched between several layers of the Black Cassette case. For the rainbow tape, I used Lollipop, Jelly Donut, Lemon Meringue, Key Lime cardstock. Using the guides on the white cassette backing die cut, I adhered each tape ring starting with the smallest key lime circle.
I attached the Black & Acetate Window cassette case to the white cassette back and adhered the black and white supply reel to the top of the acetate with two black Bits & Pieces rhinestones. To finish the cassette, I added a thin rainbow strip “metal shield” using the strip die from the kit and the Black and White Let’s Party Mix Mini Strip.
So there we are friends, two YOU ROCK! Birthday Cards using the super RAD Best Mix Ever Cardmaking Kit!! I hope you enjoyed my projects today and be sure to check out the Taylored Expressions Blog for more inspiration from the TE Creative Team. Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
