Hi today I am going to show you how to make a girly sparkly birthday card.

Products I used:

To make this card I started with my card base using Cream Vellum Plain Card 290gsm. I cut the card down and scored the top to make this into a top folding card.  I then cut down a piece of White Card Linen 255gsm as my card front. To make the square window I put a metal square die in the middle of the card and a border edge die along the bottom which I then run through my die cutting machine. Your card front is now complete and can be used later. 

The next step is to make the background which will show through the middle piece of your card front. I used a background stamp with stars on and I heat embossed white embossing powder onto the card. I used Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm for this as its such a lovely soft colour. After embossing this I cut the card down so that it will fit behind the window.  I used Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm to add some dimension and added this behind my card front. I then stuck this down onto my card base.

The next step is to die cut the number you will be using. If you don't have a number die you can try and cut the number out or use a greeting if you prefer, I used this gorgeous Silver Sparkle Card 280gsm for this card and wow this is seriously sparkly its lovely! I also cut a strip to put at the bottom of my card. After this I stamped some unicorns, a rainbow and the greeting onto White Card Plain 250gsm and stuck the images down onto my card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm and Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I then stuck a few sequins down for the finishing touch, but you can use anything you like. Some pretty die cuts would look great. 

I hope you have fun creating a sparkly card.
