How To Guide - Step 1

Using the 2 dies as a guide, cut a full "drop" from the Beautiful Birthday washi tape roll.

Peel off a corner of the adhesive backing, then carefully roll it out as you stick it down on to the A4 white card. Once you are happy, you can "buff" it, to adhere it to the card permanently. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Line up one of the dies on to the the washi tape, and hold in place with low tack tape.

Run it through your die cutting machine.

Place the second die in place, and die cut the rest of the washi. 

Pop all your die cut, washi elements, to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Blend the pink Izink Pigment ink, through your chosen stencil, around the edges of the white card (7 3/4 x 5 1/4").

As this is a slow drying ink, dry it off with a heat tool to avoid any smudges!  

How To Guide - Step 4

Once dry, adhere your stencilled background on to your pink, top folding, card blank.

Use a black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around it. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Using the tag die that measures approx 4 1/2 x 2 1/4", from the Thirsty Brush UnLtd Tagged Die Collection, cut out TWO tags. One from the white card and one from the black card (6 x 3 1/2"). 

How To Guide - Step 6

Use some of your die cut washi elements, to create a 3D display, in the bottom, right hand corner of the white card (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). You can use both wet glue, and foam pads, to create depth and dimension to your layout. 

Tip: Place all your die cut elements in place, BEFORE adhereing them down, in case you're a "faffer" like me, and take ages to decide where you want them to go!! 

How To Guide - Step 7

Use your black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around the card. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere this on to the black card (6 3/4 x 4 1/2"). 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere this centrally, on to your stencilled background. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Use a little glue to adhere the white die cut tag, on top of the black die cut tag, leaving a slight drop shadow, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Adhere the tag to the top, left of your card, with a little glue at the top only, allowing the tag to hang "loose". 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere one of the washi die cut heart elements, top centre of the tag. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Use your black pen to draw a decorative, wiggly frame, around the tag. 

How To Guide - Step 14

Adhere more of the washi floral elements, behind your layout, so they lay over the bottom, and side edges of the tag, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Adhere the washi die cut bird house, foliage, and bird, on to the tag, tucked just behind your layout, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 16

Adhere one of the washi die cut sentiments, across the bottom right of your 3D display. 

How To Guide - Step 17

To finish, adhere your sequins, on, around, and just peeping out, of your 3D artwork.
