Happy Birthday Card by Deanna M

I was watching some youtube videos yesterday and saw a project that someone did using a white card base and a white mat with just a little bit of color added as embellishments. I wanted to try making my own version of that card and this is what I came up with.

My card base is white card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. My card is a portrait card, I cut a white card stock mat 4" X 4" and ran it through my eBosser and embossed it with the Script Texture Cuttlebug embossing folder. I love my eBosser, it does such a wonderful job embossing and die cutting and I love that it is all electric, no cranking to help my white mat stand out from the white card base a bit I laid it on a piece of paper and using my Cool Gray 1 Copic Marker I traced around the outside edge of the mat using the brush tip. This applied a faint line of the light gray marker around the outside edge. I used my Scotch Quick Dry adhesive to adhere my mat to my card base.

Now for my pop of color. I wanted to add a flower to my card and found this one in the Silhouette store. I used the print and cut feature to color it and cut it out. The center of the flower was originally a heart which I didn't want, so I cut a small circle instead. Again, I adhered my layers together with Scotch Quick Dry adhesive. I added my flower to my card front with some Kool-Tak Clear foam adhesives. To finish my flower I used my Buttercup Liquid Pearls to add some tiny pearls around the outer edge of my green flower center. That is what I love about Liquid Pearls, I always have the right color and size of pearl I want because I can make whatever size I need.

Finally I added a White Opal pearl using Liquid Pearls again, in each corner of my mat to help anchor it. My sentiment is stamped in Rose Bud Memento ink. This was a super quick card to put together but I am really happy how it turned out.


  1. Lovely card. I never used liquid Pearls. It sounds cool.

  2. Just beautiful! I love the pop of any color on white and this is so springy and fun. Love it!



  3. Great job, Deanna... Love the cut file you used and the bright color it adds to the white background.
