Autumn Birthday with Partial Die Cutting

Autumn Birthday with Partial Die Cutting

I had been searching for a “happy” die similar to the “Hello Topper” die by Birch Press Designs but had no luck finding one so I did some partial die cutting to create my own “happy topper” panel. I used the background die from the “Happy Sentiment and Mat” die set from Creek Bank Creations and “partially” die cut it on a strip of card stock from the “Nostalgia” pack from Recollections. (HERE is a video showing how to do partial die cutting.)

The “happy” was cut twice from GKD Chocolate Truffle and white card stock and layered (offset) on my topper panel.

I heat embossed the “birthday” part of the greeting in white with a stamp from the Spellbinders “Happy Sentiments” (STP-002) set.

The background panel was made with the Stampendous! Decor Cling Leaves Rubber Stamp – DCR101 (a stamp I’ve used a lot this fall!). It was inked with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks from a gel plate and spritzed with water before stamping onto heavy weight white card stock.

The greeting panel on the card below was made with the “hello topper” I mentioned above and was what I was going for on today’s card:

Thanks for checking out my card project!
