Happy Birthday (Jeni Allen, Guest Designer)

Happy Birthday
by Jeni Allen, Guest Designer

Hey there!! I am happy to be sharing this fun birthday card with you all today!! I started out by using a scrap piece of cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Triangle Card Panel die, and then used that piece of cardstock as a stencil. I got some ink and my ink blending tool and made sure to get all the triangle shaded with green ink. Then when I took the cardstock stencil off, I had this great green on green card front--love!!!

I cut out a turquoise Dragon Fly from the Dragon Fly pair die. I simply attached it to the card front.  Then I cut out my Happy Birthday Script die with white cardstock, while leaving the dies in the negative space so I could add my desired colors of ink w/o worrying about bending the die or ripping it at all. After I had used my blending tool and inks to get my desired shading, I adhered them to the card front. I put the card front onto a turquoise card, and then for the final touch added a nice thick coat of glossy accents! Once dry, the sentiment is super shiny and has some great dimension!!
