Flowers and Bird Dimensional Birthday Card - featuring Elmer's products




I'm always forgetting a birthday or finding out about one last minute. This time it was my best friend's birthday. OOPS. (**Forehead smack!**) So I needed to whip a card up and quick.


I started out with a blank card from a box 'o' cards that I have handy for just such occasions. They're kind of well... plain... so before diving in to the paper embellishments, I used Elmer's Painters Pens to add a little zing to the background.


Next, I used Elmer's Craft Bond Glue Spots to fasten 12 paper squares to the card. I like them because you don't have to wait for anything to dry, and they add just a teensy bit of dimension. Not too much, but just enough to make the squares pop a little.


For the main elements on the card, I used Elmer's Craft Bond Foam Mounting Tape.


The foam mounting tape has a really nice amount of thickness, so the bird and flowers stand out and give the card some extra interest and dimension.


I finally added a couple of gems to the flowers and was done. Now I won't feel like a bad friend when I have this hand-made card to give to my buddy.

Love the colors you used with all the elements. With the layering it is clear you thought this out carefully. Smiley

The paint lines really make it pop and look even more dimensional!

I love the layered look.  I like what you did with the paint pens and the "zing" in the background.
