Hi there! I’m up on the Hero Arts Blog with a super festive “fiesta” birthday project for you using the new Birthday Cake Border Fancy Die! These fancy border dies are some of my favorites with which to create; you can go super simple and just use them as silhouettes for a great background, or you can go super detailed (as I’ve done today) with your markers or watercolors to make a fun, colorful scene! Let’s get started with the details.
I started by die cutting the Birthday Cake Border Fancy Die from some white Copic-friendly cardstock. I then used my Copic markers in the shades listed below to add lots of fun, festive color to the individual elements to create a fiesta party scene!
Once I’d finished adding the color to the entirety of the background, I adhered it to an A2 panel of white cardstock. I thought about doing some ink blending on the card base, but I loved the stark contrast of the vivid colors so much that I just kept the background plain to allow the colors to really stand out.
I die cut a black “celebrate” from Birthday Stamp & Cut XL using Pitch Black cardstock and also added a stamped “make a wish” from the coordinating stamp set, stamped in black ink on the card base itself.
I adhered the “celebrate” with Precision Glue (would also be cute as a dimensional die cut or with foam tape to pop it up!), making this a super flat, easily mailed birthday card.
Well, that’s all for my project today! I had such fun coloring this Birthday Border Fancy Die… I hope you’ll try coloring your fancy silhouette dies! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
