Card Inspiration with Neva!

Neva here to share a quick birthday card made from snippets of the Far and Away collection.  When you are down to bits and pieces of a collections sometimes it is best to make a few cards!

This is a simple card to create using a few die cuts and of course... some PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I started with what scraps I had on hand.
  • A Far and Away 102 piece was trimmed to 4 1/4" x 6 1/2" to fit the front of an A6 card base.  It is edged in Powder Puff Chalking Ink in Deep Sea.
  • Twelve small hexagons are die cut from various other papers and in the collection.  All are edged in Deep Sea.
  • Three layers of the Happy Birthday to You are die cut.
  • The top layer is inked with Deep Sea.
  • To create a chipboard effect with the sentiment the layers are stacked together and adhered.  This photo shows the layers underneath the top inked layer.
  • The hexagons are adhered, some directly the to card front, others with dimensional foam adhesive.
