Striped 40th Birthday Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #174)

Hi everyone! :o)

It's time for a new challenge over at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Our theme for this fortnight is #174, Zahlen / Numbers. Use numbers on your handmade projects.

This time our lucky winner will win this lovely embossing folder.

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Striped 40th Birthday Card.

I made this card for my partner's brother who's 40th birthday was yesterday.

To make this card I tried an awesome Jennifer's McGuire Masked Stripe Inlay technique. What an awesome technique and a great way to use paper scraps. I love the result!! :o)

To make striped panel, I used 4 various blue colored cardstock paper scraps, cut them to various size stripes and glued them as shown and described on Jennifer's blog. Check her blog post and video for more details and how to make striped panel. :o)

When I glued all stripes, I trimmed the panel and heat embossed in white number 40 on it. I used numbers form Happy Little Stampers 'Big Bold Numbers' stamp set.

Lastly, I glued the panel on a white top folded square card base and my card was finished.

Card dimensions: 102 mm x 102 mm (4" x 4")

List of supplies:
  • Happy Little Stampers 'Big Bold Numbers' stamp set
  • white cardstock paper
  • blue cardstock paper scraps (4 colors)
