Goodbye - Birthday Bonanza...

Good morning, hope everybody is keeping safe and well.

Since we have been in lockdown in the UK, myself and a small group of fellow demonstrators have been connecting on a Friday evening via Zoom as a way to keep in contact and be creative.  Each week we choose a theme and share our card 'ingredients' with each other so we can gather the products in advance.  We then take each card in turn and create them in our own home.  We try and use products we are all likely to have but if we don't have the exact same items, we improvise.  It is really good fun and it is so lovely to see faces!

Today I am sharing with you a simple but effective card from this week's get together using just a few products and highlighting our fabulous Designer Series Paper.  Our theme this week was to use and highlight DSP.

We will shortly be saying goodbye to the Birthday Bonanza Suite which I am sure will be greatly missed but we have to make way for some fabulous new goodies that will be with us in June (you are not going to be disappointed!)


Here is my card...


I cut a C6 card base in Bermuda Bay.  I cut a cardstock layer from Terracotta Tile to measure 13.85cm x 9.5cm and a DSP layer to measure 13.35cm x 9cm.  I glued the two layers together and punched through both layers using the Label Me Lovely punch.  I laid the punched layer on to my card and drew through the aperture.  I then punched the shape from the card front.

I glued the layers on to the card.  From a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock I punched the shape again and fussy cut a border before gluing this to my card.  I stamped the greeting in Versamark on to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed in white before cutting a banner and gluing it down.

I cut a Whisper White layer to measure 13.35cm x 9cm and glued to the inside of my card.


To make the candles I cut three strips of co-ordinating DSP to measure 3.5cm (candle height) x 5cm.  I glued a piece of Whisper White Baker's twine along one of the short ends of the DSP and rolled it up to create a candle.  I then trimmed the twine so it looks like the wick of the candle and glued them in place through the aperture.

I hope you enjoyed my fun card today.  The Birthday Bonanza DSP is currently still available as are the matching stamps so don't delay if you don't want to miss out!  I would be delighted to be your demonstrator and items can be delivered direct to your home.  Please get in touch or you can use the product list below.

Keep safe and happy creating,

Jo
