Birthday Card

To create this card I used the Sizzix eclips & the Sizzix Cards & Envelope, Easter and Dress Ups cartridges. The card base I used First Edition Paper Animal antics 12 x 12 paper pad. I used the card page 76 (handbook) Cards & Envelope cartridge US square 4.75" x 4.75". I cut another square @ 4.75 x 4.75 cut this on the diagonal and adhered this to a strip of red card then adhered to the base of the card. Using the Sizzix eclips Dress Ups cartridge I cut the Fireman @ 3.75. This cut can be found on page 33 in the handbook. The cut for the number 2 on the fireman's helmet is from the Girl Outfits: Hockey Girl page 74 handbook Pieces feature. I stamped the face using a Sizzix Dress Up faces stamp and Memento Rich Cocoa. I adhered the fireman to the card using pop dots. I used the Sizzix eclips Easter cartridge to create the scallop. This cut can be found on page 19 in the handbook. The scallop was cut @ 2. I used Adobe Photoshop to create the Happy Birthday sentiment. This was printed on my printer and then cut out using scissors. I distressed the edges and inked around the edge with VersaColor 55 Umber. For the star in the centre of this embellishment I used a small Carl craft star punch. The Happy Birthday sentiment was adhered flat onto the scallop cut out. I used pop dots to adhere the scallop onto the card. The envelope cut can be found on page 80 Sizzix Cards and Envelope handbook. US square 10.75 edit height Assembled Size 5" x 5".
