Over the Edge Birthday Card
What do you do when your greeting panel is too big for your card? Just spill over the edge – lol!
I partially debossed the upper portion of a piece of Gina K Designs Warm Glow card stock with the “Scroll Background” embossing folder by Darice (#1216-62) and cut the bottom edge with the “English Ivy Edger Punch” from EK Success. I used my score board to add the lines between the two.
The greeting was cut with the “Happy Birthday 2” die (#1161) from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It was die cut 3 times and layered. Originally, I had adhered the greeting directly to the debossed panel, but it seemed too busy so I removed the die cuts (gotta love Un-du!!) and went with the design above. Here’s what it looked like originally:
Still not sure which way I prefer. (Of course, with Un-du, I can keep moving it back and forth without damaging my panel or die cuts until I decide- lol!)
The “smooshed” panel used to die cut the top layer of the greeting and for behind the bottom, punched edge was created with Vintage Photo, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide inks and water. I wasn’t super thrilled with it as a whole panel, but I really like it in small doses!
With the overhanging panel, the card is now 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 and does not fit in an A2 size envelope so I created a custom envelope with my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board (paper size: 8 3/8 and punch guide measurement: 3 3/4).
Thanks for checking out my card project!
