Hero Arts|Happy Birthday

 Hola everyone! Popping in to share a birthday card I created for my crafty friend and fellow card maker Karen of Cards Stamps and Ink. She turns 50 today and a few of her friends wanted to flood her timeline with birthday cards to surprise her!

I created a card using the new Happy Thanks Stamp and Cut XL set introduced in the Hero Arts Spring 2021 Catalog. It was fun to create and I hope you give it a try! 

Karen's favorite color is purple so I chose that as my card base. 

To begin, I die-cut "happy" in Pitch Black cardstock and set aside. Next, I glued 3.5" strips of scrap cardstock in Peony, Amethyst, Lavender and Azelea onto a piece of printer paper and let dry. I then die-cut "happy"into the strips and glued it slightly offset to the black die-cut "happy" creating a shadow. 

Next, using Dove White cardstock, I die cut the Party Confetti Fancy Die. I then die-cut "happy" into the center of the confetti panel and cut it down slightly on all four sides. Next, I carefully adhered the panel to an A2 top-folding Amethyst card base. 

I adhered the shadowed striped "happy" on the die-cut space in the confetti panel. I then stamped then sentiments onto Dove White cardstock, cut them down and matted them with Azelea cardstock. I adhered them to card and completed it with a few Purple Hero Hues Enamel Dots. 

I hope Karen enjoys my card. You can take a peek at the others cards made for Karen by searching #itskarens50thbirthday on Instagram.
