Today is the Card Hoppin February Hop and I have two cards for you. We are all members of the Facebook Group Handmade Happiness and have come together for a fun year of hops featuring different themes and techniques. This is hop number two and my favorite color is blue or blue/green and I chose to use acetate instead of the other choice which was vellum.
For my first card, I just wanted the shaker portion to be inside the cake. I die cut many different colors of the Happy Birthday die and adhered all of the die cut pieces together. I used one layer of foam tape and also die cut a piece of acetate for the cake portion. To do this I didnt cut through the acetate the whole way instead I did more of an raised embossing so I used scissors to cut the portion I needed out. Once I added the confetti and glued the acetate on top, I then glued another die cut on top to finish off the card and give it a clean look.
