Creating Your Own Pattern Paper with Happy Birthday Gorgeous

I did my first facebook live yesterday.  Yikes! It was scary.  But I did it! I only watched the first couple seconds of the playback and then turned it off.  It's just so weird to listen to the sound of your own voice.  However, I know that I called the Big Shot a Cricut and started saying something a couple times and then got sidetracked and never went back to it.  When you do a video on you tube, it can be a little more refined.  The live video on facebook  makes one feel very vulnerable! I got one FB LIve under my belt and here's to the next one! Enough of me jibberjabbing!
Here's the end result of the card I made on facebook live yesterday!
This is very simple card as far as cutting paper goes.  You just need a hot dog piece of very vanilla cardstock, which is 4 1/4" X 11 and it scored at 5 1/2", another piece of very vanilla at 41/4" X 51/2" to create your pattern paper and a piece of 1 1/2" X  2 1/2" of very vanilla cardstock.

Directions:
  1. Using the incolors Stampin' Up classic ink pads from 2018-2020, stamp the piece of very vanilla cardstock at 4 1/4 "X 5 1/2."  You can refer to the video to see exactly what stamps I used from Happy Birthday Gorgeous or change it up and do it how you want.
  2. Cut 2 circles out from the layering circles dies.  And use your stripes embossing folder to emboss the front of your very vanilla cardstock card base.
  3.  With blueberry bushel classic ink pad, stamp the Happy Birthday greeting on the 1 1/2" X 2 1/2" piece of vanilla cardstock.
  4. Using the circle punch, bend the cardstock in half making sure that it is in the punch evenly and punch half a circle on each end.  It looks like a tag.
  5. Attach your circles on the very vanilla embossed card front with SNAIL.  Attach your greeting with mini stampin dimensionals.
  6. Attach sequins with fine tip glue pen.
  7.  Send your card to a friend or family member!

I also made this card with the same technique. 
You can see I added a little extra fun with the Banners for You stamp set and dies.  
For this card, you will need a scrap piece of vanilla cardstock so you can stamp the banner on it.
Directions:
  1. Using the incolors Stampin' Up classic ink pads from 2018-2020, stamp the piece of very vanilla cardstock at 4 1/4 "X 5 1/2."  You can refer to the video to see exactly what stamps I used from Happy Birthday Gorgeous or change it up and do it how you want.
  2. Cut 2 circles out from the layering circles dies.  And use your simple stripes embossing folder to emboss the front of your very vanilla cardstock card base.
  3.  With a memento tuxedo black stamp pad and the banners for you stamp set, stamp the 2 tiered banner.  Using the happy birthday to you greetings from Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, stamp into the banner.  And then I cut it with my Banners for You dies.
  4. Attach your circles on the very vanilla embossed card front with SNAIL.  Attach your greeting with mini stampin dimensionals.
  5. Attach sequins with the fine tip glue pen.
  6.  Send your card to a friend or family member!
Can't decide which card I like better!? I do know that I love the simple stripes embossing folder.  The simple and quick texture that it creates on the background is just FAB!
I used the amazing sketch (as always) from Freshly Made Sketches challenge.
Hope you had an amazing week! And a relaxing weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
