Birthday Cards, Celebration Cards



Hi there, I hope you’re having a great day!

Today I’m playing with some items from Catherine Pooler Designs, available over at  These sherbert-y colors feel so summery to me!

And, I’m super excited to have posted my first mini-video over on Instagram so I hope you’ll visit me over there!  It’s not a great video, but it’s a start 🙂

I started by using the Catherine Pooler Celebrate die to cut the sentiment three times out of scrap white cardstock.  I inked up one die cut with a Wow! Embossing Pad, going direct to paper to cover the entire surface, and then I dunked the die cut into my container of Judikins Translucent Gold embossing powder and hit it with a heat gun.  I stacked and adhered all three die cuts together with a Zig 2-way Glue Pen.

For the background I mounted the long garland stamp from the Catherine Pooler Punctuated Party stamp set onto an acrylic block and then stamped it across an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock multiple times.  I used Catherine Pooler It’s a Girl, Mint To Be, and Melon Ice inks.  Then I added a bit more gold embossing using one of the smaller stamps in the stamp set.

To finish, I adhered the sentiment to the top of the background and then adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

I created an almost identical card following a similar process, but the second time around I adhered the sentiment to the bottom of the card front first and then stamped the garlands second so I could space them properly around the sentiment.

Thank you so much for visiting!
