Birthday Cheer Birthday Card And Gift Voucher Wallet

by Joanne James29. January 2019 21:00

Today I'm sharing a card with a layout inspired by the current Fab Friday sketch:


I also have a matching gift voucher wallet too - more of that later. First to my card - take a look:


Here's the low-down on today's card:

Birthday Cheer - The only stamping on the front of today's card is the background, where I added tone-on-tone confetti, and the sentiment. there are some lovely sentiments and bold images in the Birthday Cheer stamp set, but this card is really about the diecut, which takes centre stage. I've used it to make a birthday card but it could be easily adapted for a Christmas card too in an alternative colourway. I did do a little stamping on the inside too, using one of the larger sentiments:


Colouring Options - The diecuts can be used in lots of ways: on their own, paper-pieced, paper-backed, stencilled or coloured with markers to name just a few. On my card, I coloured the presents using a combination of my Stampin' Write Markers and Stampin' Blends using another identical diecut as a stencil guide. On my gift voucher wallet below, I used whole pieces of cardstock behind each present to give more even blocks of colour. I think I prefer the version below, but will definitely be experimenting with these dies a little more to find intersting ways to add colour to them. 

The Perfect Gift - I had a gift voucher wallet to make up for one of my customers who wanted to gift her sister with Stampin' Up! vouchers for her birthday, so I decided to make it to co-ordinate with my card above and send both. I always make my Stampin' Up! gift voucher wallets in a long, narrow design, so I just needed to elongate my diecut and alter the greeting on the front slightly to something more appropriate:

Did you know you can get Stampin' Up! gift vouchers from me for any amount and any occasion? They do make a great gift, either for yourself or others. If you're ever at a loss for what to buy you nearest and dearest, just give me a call and we can take the pain out of gift giving and give the gift of choice!
