Make A Wish Birthday Card: Card Tutorial

Hi Stamper!
It’s a new year and with it comes tons of birthdays of all your family and friends. Want to get a head start on creating cards? Today we have a free tutorial on this super cute birthday card that is perfect for anyone, because it’s not overly masculine or feminine. These instructions are our FREE tutorial of the month, enjoy!

Prep Work
Whisper White
One piece cut to 5 ½” x 8 ½” and then scored in the middle at 4 ¼”
One 2 ½” Circle (Punch)

Basic Black
One piece cut to 2 ¾” x 3 ½”

Mint Macaron
One piece cut to 4 ¼” x 1 ¾”

Crushed Curry
One 2 ¾” Circle (Circle Framelits – 6th one from the middle)

Designer Series Paper (It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack)
Three pieces cut to ½” x 4”
One piece cut to 1” x 4”

One piece cut 2” x 2”

Getting Started
First stamp the “cake” image from the Party Wishes stamp set in Mint Macaron onto the Whisper White 2 ½” Circle Punch. Using the Updated Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and a Stampin’ Piercing Mat, pierce the Whisper White circle using the circle pattern (3rd one from the outside). Glue this circle onto the Crushed Curry circle.

On the piece of vellum stamp the “make a wish” image from the Party Wishes stamp set in Jet Black StazOn and let dry (takes about 30 seconds). Once dry, punch it out with the 1 3/8” circle punch.

On all four pieces of Designer Series Paper (DSP) punch out the ends using the Triple Banner Punch. Using Dimensionals, glue on one of the DSP banners to the “cake” circle and glue the “make a wish” vellum circle onto the banner using a Glue Dot. Then tie a bow with the Mint Macaron twine from the Baker’s Twine Combo Pack and glue it with a glue dot onto the “make a wish” vellum circle. Set this whole piece aside.

Using the bottom of the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, emboss the Basic Black, 2 ¾” x 3 ½” piece.

Assembling the Card
First, using Tombo Multipurpose Liquid Glue, attach the three DSP banners (no pattern) to the back of the embossed Basic Black piece. Attach the embossed Basic Black piece using Tombo onto the 4 ¼” x 1 ¾” Mint Macaron piece. 

Then, attach this whole piece using Dimensionals onto your card base. Be careful of the banners at the bottom as you don’t want to go over your card base’s edge. Lastly, using Dimensionals, attach the Crush Curry circle. To complete the card add a few “It’s My Party Enamel Dots” to the edges of the card.
