Happy “Pastel” Birthday

I’ve got a pretty blingy card today, it was a 17th Birthday card for my daughter and I wanted to reflect her sparkly personality 🙂 I used a lot of pastel colours, glitter paper, and blingy little gems. Oh, and how can I forgot I added a pop up 17 and a shaker element on the front.

All the cardstock used for this card is from Stampin’ Up and the colours used are Coastal Cabana, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Bermuda Bay. I also used Gold and Blue Glitter paper that I purchased at a Dollar Store.

The card base is in So Saffron. The nesting circle shapes on the front of the card are from Elizabeth Craft design Fitted Frames Circles. I used a couple other circle dies that I had to put behind the greeting on the front, and on the inside. I cut all the shapes out of the different colours and just picked out the colour to add to the card as I went. I created a shaker element for the focal point of the card. I glued a few multicoloured gems inside the shaker element and then filled the space with glitter and stars. I added some of the same gems around the rest of the card front, the gems were bought at a dollar store. The Happy Birthday greeting is a die from my Stash, (when I figure out where it is from I will update)

The circle pop up inside the card is from Karen Burnistons Circle Twist Pop-up set (I have her original set but she currently is selling it as a Snow Man circle Twist) direction video –  I used some of the extra circles for the pop-up and I cut out the 17 out of glitter paper and a number die. I added a few of the same gems on the inside that I used on the front.

The “Love” die is from Stampin’ Up and the “You” die is from my stash. The flower is the from the center of the Fitted Frames Circle set that I used for the front and the hearts are from a heart die set I believe I got from Stampin up.



Thanks for joining me! I am a paper crafting enthusiast who has a special interest in interactive cards. I get a lot of inspiration from the internet so I thought that I  would throw out my own creations with hope that it inspires someone else.
