Card One: Tri-Fold with Detail Edge
For my first card, I created a tri-fold card with detail edge. On the left flap of my tri-fold card, I stamped the adorable balloon garland stamp from the Party Balloon Garland Clear Stamp Set. Using the coordinating Balloon Garland & Sentiments Stencil, I colored the balloons with bright colors and added some sparkly glitter. The balloons instantly add a touch of whimsy and celebration to the design, setting a joyful tone for the card.
For the right flap of my card, I opted for the charming Tiny Dots Embossing Folder. I carefully inserted the flap into the embossing folder and ran it through a die-cutting machine, creating a mesmerizing pattern of tiny dots. This embossed texture adds a subtle yet delightful visual and tactile element, bringing the design to life.
Card Two: Easy to Mail Full Front Shaker
A full front shaker card is a fantastic way to create an interactive and attention-grabbing design. The shaker element adds an extra layer of fun and excitement to the card, making it perfect for celebratory occasions. As a bonus, they are easy to mail because the shaker element adds minimal bulk!
To frame the card and add a festive touch, I heat embossed the balloon garland stamp from the Party Balloon Garland Clear Stamp Set on both sides of the card. The heat embossing adds a touch of elegance and ties in with the Glimmering Poppin’ Birthday Hot Foil sentiment.
Card Three: Mica Stain with Embossing
To add a dazzling touch to my third card, I began by spraying mica stains. Mica stains are shimmering pigments that lend a gorgeous sheen to any project. By carefully applying the mica stains onto the cardstock, I created a captivating and ethereal background that adds depth and visual interest to the design.
Once the mica stains dried, I embossed the card panel using the Floating Balloons 3D Embossing Folder. This embossed detail adds dimension and a celebratory vibe to the card. Then, to make a bold statement, I incorporated Glimmering Poppin’ Birthday Hot Foil sentiment on the front of the card.
With the combination of mica stains, embossed balloon panel, and a striking hot foiled sentiment, my third card using the It’s My Party Collection offers a unique and alluring design. The shimmering background, textured embossing, and the striking sentiment make it a standout piece for any celebratory occasion.
