Magenta Madness & Misty Moonlight from Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

 

Magenta Madness & Misty Moonlight from Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' Pretty

STAMPIN’ PRETTY STEP-BY-STEP TUTORIAL:

Begin with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base of Whisper White Thick card stock. 

Use the Tailored Tag Punch to crop 5 pieces of Misty Moonlight and 3 pieces of Magenta Madness.  

Adhere them as shown with Stampin’ Seal. 

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to trim 4 x 5 1/4. 

Adhere to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 

Magenta Madness & Misty Moonlight from Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Card by Mary Fish, Stampin' PrettyAdhere a piece of Misty Moonlight card stock a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheet.  

  • TIP: Cut them to the size you need for your project so that you have very little waste. 

Crop the “HAPPY” (Playful Alphabet Dies) and “birthday” (Well Written Dies) with a die-cutting machine. 

Remove the adhesive sheet backing and adhere them to the card as shown. 

  • TIP: I left the “birthday” in the die (as shown in the first photo) and adhered it to the card first, then removed the die.  This helps the die-cut keep its original shape!
