Hey everyone! It’s Jessica today. I saw this 1920’s style during the New Year and it was the first thing I thought of when I first looked at the Geometric Favor box. I don’t make many favor boxes but it is something I want to try. For some reason those always make me nervous to make! lol. I know they are super easy though! I was inspired by the flower card I made in my last i-crafter post, but this time instead of yellow, I’m using gold to make this more glitzy for my 1920’s inspired card.
The two die sets I’m using for this card are both apart of the March release; Geometric Favor box and Haley Outline Alphabet set. So this is perfect if you are not a stamper. I used one of the interchangeable dies from the Geometric Favor Box die set with a piece of black card stock, cut down to 4in x 5.25in. I cut the die into each corner keeping the black outline shape. Using my ATG I added adhesive to the back, then adhered over the top of a gold foil card stock. Which is trimmed down to the same size as the black card stock and mounted to a A2 Neenah Solar White card base.
Now for the decorating part to this art deco card! I kept the outline pieces to the die cuts I did in the four corners. I adhered those into those slots which now shows the lovely die cut outline! The sentiment is cut from a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock, keeping both the outline and solid inner letter parts. I used tweezers to help adhere the letters to make out “have a swell” on the front. The inside will spell out birthday! I’m still working on adding to my birthday card stash.
The center “A” I swapped out the inner white die cut with a gold one. The Haley alphabet dies have a great font that makes lining them up. From my stash I add some pearls. These are the type that already have adhesive and are a line of them that are attached together.
For the inside I used the Haley Outline Alphabet to spell out the word birthday. This time using the gold foil outline and a white center for each letter. I also added the same art deco detail in the bottom left of the corner. Switching it up a little from the front by using a gold out line to fit into the slot that is die cut into the black card stock.
Super easy, right!? And if I had more time I would have made a matching Geometric Favor box, which is a great addition to this Happy Birthday card. Definitely going to keep that in mind for when I this card to someone!
Thank you so much for joining me today.
Let’s create something together.
