Quick Birthday Card

June and July are hectic Birthday months for me so I need to make some quick cards.  Today I wanted to share with you the cards I made for my nephew's Birthday

My nephew loves cars so I wanted to make him a car themed card, I had this car themed 3D punch out sheet in my stash so decided to use this as the inspiration for my card.  I carefully popped out the layers and then adhered them together with Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots, they really are perfect for this as I can adjust the height of my layers by using this awesome adhesive.

I set this aside to dry and started working on my card base.
I cut a piece of red A4 cardstock in half and then scored and folded that piece in half.
Then I went through my stash and found a cool piece of black embossed paper, trimmed it to size and adhered it down with Helmar Acid Free Glue.


To finish off my card I adhered my 3D car to my card base with Helmar Acid Free Glue and then raided my alpha stash for a nice big number 5 and some alphas to spell out Happy Birthday.   Tip stick down your alphas with Helmar Acid Free Glue to ensure longevity and if you have the time give your card a coat of Helmar Chrystal Kote Matte Varnish to protect it from anything little fingers get on it.

I am really happy with how my card turned out and best of all my nephew loved it.
