Bring on the Happy Card - FabScraps Teens Collection

Hello Everyone

I had to make a Birthday card for a friend of mine's boyfriend and so I used the Teens Collection from FabScraps, which was perfect for a masculine card.

Here's a closer look.

This stamped sentiment is a Penny Black stamp from a Birthday set I bought and is really one of the best purchases that I have ever made.  I use these stamps every other day.

Here's how I made this card.

Supplies List:
Patterned Paper: FabScraps #Teens C80 006 Togethering, FabScraps #Teens C80 007 Staycation, FabScraps #Teens C80 008 Hash Tag,
Journal Pack: FabScraps #Teens MC80 001A
Chipboard Remainder: Rectangle approx. 14cm x 6cm
Cardstock: White and black
Greeting Stamps – Bring on the Happy – Penny Black
Pigment Ink – Black
Die-cuts: stars and chevrons
White Gel Pen & Black koki pen
Washi Tape: Blue
Liquid Pearls: Chocolate
Black embossing powder

  1. Cut a piece of white cardstock, 15cm x 30,5 cm and fold in half.
  2. Cut a 13,5cm x 19,5 cm piece from the brick side of the Staycation patterned paper.
  3. Cut an 8cm x 18cm piece from the green side of the Togethering patterned paper.
  4. Stick the brick patterned paper piece onto the front of the card and outline the paper with a black koki pen.
  5. Stick the green patterned paper rectangle onto the brick paper, 2cm from the left edge of the brick paper. Outline this green piece with a black koki pen.
  6. Heat emboss the chipboard rectangle with the black embossing powder.
  7. Stick this down into the centre of the green patterned paper.
  8. Die-cut some stars from the stripey side of the Hash Tag patterned paper and some chevrons from the black cardstock.
  9. Use the star die-cut element from the Journal pack and outline this with a black koki pen.
  10. Stamp the sentiment onto the centre of this star die-cut element.
  11. Use double sided tape to stick down this star element in the centre of the embossed chipboard rectangle.
  12. Add the stars and chevrons and adhere to the card, as per the photo. Outline with a white gel pen.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you have a blessed Easter Sunday and are spending it with family and friends.
