INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Night of Navy card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Sending Love Glassine Sheet at 3-1/2″ x 6″. The Glassine Sheet is 6″ wide. You can also use Vellum or patterned paper instead of the Glassine Sheet. 3. Angle your Glassine Sheet so it touches both the top right corner and the bottom left corner.

~Since I made this I have learned a new way to attach Glassine and Vellum without the adhesive showing through.
~Cut a Sponge wedge
~Put about a 3/4″ circle of Tombow Glue on your Silicone Craft Sheet. Pounce your Sponge wedge to cover the rounded part with Tombow Glue.
~Now Pounce your gluey Sponge Wedge evenly on the back of your Glassine Sheet or Vellum.
~Attach your Glassine Sheet to your card front, being careful to not glue it to the surface underneath.
~ Spread your Bone Folder over the top to flatten.
~Attach your Lace Doily using the gluey Sponge Wedge.

~Attach one Bow end to the bottom of each Long Bow piece with 2 Glue Dots so the Bow ends stick out evenly at the ends of the Long Bow pieces.

This Flower Birthday Candle card uses the Candle Punch and two layers of card stock to make a multi-colored candle. The flowers are colored with markers. So choose your birthday person’s favorite two colors to make your version of this card. SUPPLIES: Stamps:Big on Birthdays Photopolymer #142877 Ink: Watermelon Wonder Markers: Daffodil Delight
Old Olive Card Stock: Whisper White
Watermelon Wonder Punch:Candle Border #142764 Adhesive: SNAIL or Tombow Glue

Punch your Candle Border along one of the 5-1/2″ edges starting in the center, then punch each edge. Use your Paper Trimmer to cut 1/4″ off each 4″ side to just above the candles. Use scissors to cut the off the 1/4″ section off above the candle at the edge. You can cut at an angle if you want to. 3. Stamp your Happy Birthday in Watermelon Wonder ink. Color the flowers with Daffodil Delight Marker and the leaves and stems with Old Olive Marker. 4. Cut a 1/2″ x 5-1/2″ strip of both Watermelon Wonder and So Saffron. Attach under the candles.

Add the Watermelon Wonder card stock strip along the bottom edge so it shows through the candle cut outs. Line up the So Saffron strip so it touches the Watermelon Wonder strip. Make sure there is enough adhesive to attach the top. 5. Attach the card front to the card base with SNAIL.
Have fun making this Birthday Card in a variety of colors.
I was watching a video about someone making diamond shaped decorations and decided to try and make a Pumpkin and a Turkey using a Pyramid shape. These were pretty quick and easy. SUPPLIES: Ink: Peekaboo Peach Marker – Pumpkin
Tangerine Tango ink pad – Turkey
Basic Black Marker – Turkey Pumpkin Card Stock: Pumpkin Pie
Garden Green Turkey Card Stock: Soft Suede
Daffodil Delight Big Shot:Pyramid Pals Framelits #140618 Flower Fair Framelits #133731 Pumpkin Layering Circles Framelits #141705 Adhesive: Tombow Glue
NOTE: If you want to open the Pyramids so you can put something inside: Put a piece of tape on the inside of the tips, then after decorating, punch a 1/16″ hole about 1/8″ from the tip of each Triangle. Decorate the Pyramids. Close the Pyramids by threading Baker’s Twine through the holes. Tabs: You can glue the Front to the Tabs, but not the Back Triangle.
1. Cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Cut two of the Pyramid shape Framelits. Fold all score lines so both pieces are the same. 2. Draw oval like shapes on each triangle with the Peekaboo Peach Marker. 3. Put glue on the top side of one of the bottom squares. Attach the other square on top making sure that the sides with the tabs are opposite each other. 4. Cut a 1/8″ x 5-1/2″ strip of Garden Green card stock for the curly vines. Run a bone folder over it to start it curling. Find something round and narrow to wrap it around and curl it. I used one of my grandson’s metal cooking spoons with the round metal part about 1/8″ in diameter. Curl the strip around the round piece holding the end to keep it in place. Gently unwrap the strip so you keep the curl in. Cut it in half Glue both pieces to the tip so one part sticks up and the other angles across. 5. Cut a little stem from Garden Green card stock. You can cut a Garden Green leaf from the Flower Fair Framelits or just cut it with scissors. Glue the stem on top of the pyramid tip and over the curly vines. Glue the leaf to the stem.
TURKEY INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut a piece of Soft Suede
card stock at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Cut two of the Pyramid shape Framelits. Fold all score lines so both pieces are the same. 2. Choose one of the Triangle sides without tabs to be the Turkey front. Cut 3 Scallop Circles from Soft Suede card stock. Cut the circles in half. Sponge the scallops with Tangerine Tango ink. Layer and Glue the circles together. Glue to the Front Triangle.
