Stampin’ Up! Dressed to Impress Plaid Shaker Birthday Card

This birthday shaker card is for my mother…all the things she loves…shine, sparkle, gold, pink and made by me! It features the Dressed to Impress stamps and dies and the Celebration Labels dies. Enjoy!

The Paper Cuts

  • Shimmer White Cardstock: a cardbase cut at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″, two of the 2nd smallest Celebration Labels die and scraps for the floral and sentiment.
  • Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper: a 6×6 sheet cut at 4″ x 5 1/4″. You’ll use the remaining pieces for the envelope flap and the strip inside.
  • Gold Foil Sheets: the middle sized Celebration Labels die.
  • Window Sheet: the 2nd smallest Celebration Labels die.

The Creating

  • Use the perfume bottle die to cut out the center of one of the Shimmer White labels. Lay the label on top of the other, place in the Stamparatus to line up the perfume stamp through the opening. Remove the label with the opening. Stamp the perfume bottle with Versamark Ink, sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss and melt with the Heat Tool. Repeat with the sentiment on the inside of the card, the rose image and the “hello fabulous”.
  • Color the rose image with Stampin’ Blends.
  • Fussy cut the “hello fabulous” with Paper Snips. Apply Foam Adhesive Strips to the top of the “h” and the “ll”s.
  • Die cut the floral image with the coordinating die. Apply Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back.
  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive to apply the Window Sheet to the back of the Shimmer White die cut of the perfume bottle. Apply Foam Adhesive Strips along the edges of the bottom portion of the bottle and around the rest of the label to support it.
  • Adhere the plaid panel on the card front. Top with the Gold Foil label. Add the Shimmer White label with the embossed perfume bottle. Place your filler in the center of the perfume bottle. Top with the window sheet label.
  • Add the floral image, the sentiment, the bow and the strip to the inside.
  • Adhere the remaining plaid piece to the envelope flap and trim excess.
