How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps

If you are like me there are scraps left over from projects. Today I’ll share How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps. The focal point is an image from Calico Collage Natures Glory digital journal kit. The Birthday Wishes Stamp is from Brutus Monroe as is the Detail Ink – Raven.

When I clean up after a project I try to see if there is some way I can use up the bits and pieces that are left over. Looking at the Natures Glory image I knew it would be a perfect focal image on a greeting card.

Since I knew I also needed to make a project featuring a Stamp Club set from Brutus Monroe I had several sets on my desk. Flipping through the stamps I saw the Birthday Wishes and an idea formed.

Here is a video showing How to make a Birthday Wishes Card Using Scraps.

Used the Brutus Monroe Detail ink – Raven to stamp the Birthday Wishes from the Brutus Monroe Stamp club set on a scrap of white paper.

Washi tape from my stash added another layer to the card. On my desk was a tied black and white bow and a smaller waxed linen bow. Self-adhesive rhinestones add a touch of bling.

A page torn from an old book also makes a great background. Don’t worry I didn’t destroy a best seller book. It was one that I picked up at a thrift store. Usually, these old books can be found for under a dollar and these have nice old pages that can make great backgrounds on cards.

Next time you are cleaning up your work area take a look at those scraps and see what else can be done. That way you don’t store the scraps, you make a finished project.

Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card

How to make a Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card using Rinea foil, Tonic Studios die and Diamond plate embossing folder from Darice. Just a few weeks ago I purchased the Chopper Bike die from Tonic Studios. Today I decided to make a card using this new die.

Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card

Knowing that the Rinea foil I wanted to use was two sided I began the process. The foil I selected is the smooth gold and silver color.

I’m so glad that I picked up the Diamond Plate embossing folder as this was the perfect background to go with the Chopper.

Supplies and Tools Used for Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card
Gold / Silver Rinea Foil
Chopper Bike – Tonic Studios
Diamond Plate embossing folder – Darice
Happy Birthday – Brutus Monroe Sharon’s Script
Detail Ink Raven – Brutus Monroe
Black brads – Paper Studio
White A2 greeting card
Scraps of watercolor paper and black cardstock
Zig Two Way Glue
Thermoweb Tape Runner XL
Tim Holtz Vagabond by Sizzix
Awl or piercing tool
Aleene’s Tacky Glue
Fiskars 5 Inch Softgrip Scissors
White Adhesive Foam Squares

Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card

The process is pretty easy for this card. To begin cut a piece of the gold/silver foil just under 4.25 in. x 5.5 in. This will be the background and topper for the card. Place the silver side up inside the Diamond Plate embossing folder and put through the Tim Holtz Vagabond machine from Sixxiz.

Die cut the chopper bike with the gold side of the Rinea paper. Die cut the chopper out of two scraps of watercolor paper. These will be used to raise the chopper up and add dimension.

Adhere the three choppers together using Zig Two Way glue with the gold chopper on top.

Using an awl or hole punch, pierce the silver diamond plate paper in all four corners. Place black brads in each corner. Adhere silver panel to the A2 greeting card using Thermoweb Tape Runner XL.

Stamp Happy Birthday with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink Raven on a scrap of white card stock. Glue to a slightly large scrap of black cardstock with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. Trim the ends with scissors to look like a pennate. Using White Adhesive Foam Squares on the sentiment mount in the upper center of the card.

Adhere Chopper Bike to the card using Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Admire the Chopper Happy Birthday Greeting Card that you just made.

Simple card huh? My husband really liked how the diamond plate set off the Chopper Bike on this card. He said it was one of his favorite cards. I think partly is because it is a “guys” card and there was nothing girly about this one at all.
