Happy Day

Hello there, Jenn here to share a shabby little happy day card with you!

This card can be used as friendship card, Birthday card, Easter card or just a note to say hello!
The amazing Tutti Designs Dies are great to create cards because they cut so well and the detail is just wonderful!
For this card I used the four largest circles from:
I also used:
Additional Supplies:
Designer papers (I used DCWV - The Primrose Stack)
Solid cardstock in coordinating colors (I used soft pink, kraft, and light teal)
Strong adhesive tape gun
Hot glue and glue gun
Chipboard embellishments (butterfly and sentiment)
Small adhesive pearls
White acrylic paint
Pink iridescent embossing powder and heat tool
TH Distress Ink Vintage Photo and applicator

Here is a look at the papers and die cuts before assembly

Start by creating a base using a solid colored cardstock. (I used kraft)
Cut a sheet of 8 1/2" X 11" to 10" x 7"
Score in the middle at 5", fold and burnish This is your card base.
Next cut the following from dies
1 - Large circle (4 1/4") - solid color (pink here)
1 - Second largest circle (3 1/2") -solid color (teal here)
Cut the final two circles( 3 1/4" and 2 1/2") from the designer paper cut out sheets like below
Most 12 X 12 designer paper stacks have pages like these with lots of images to cut out. You can also use patterned paper as an alternative.
Cut from one 12 X 12 sheet of designer paper - 2 - 4 3/4" X 6 3/4"
These are for the front and inside of the card.
Once all pieces are cut and ready, ink all of the edges using Distress ink in Vintage Photo or another brown hue
Cut a strip of ribbon to accent the front of the card and adhere it with tape runner or paper safe glue.
Start building the circles by adhering them with tape runner and layering from the largest on the bottom to the smallest on the top.

Use a glue stick lightly on the vine die cuts and adhere them to the card next.

Using the same accent ribbon color tie a nice bow. Gather the bow, flowers, small adhesive pearls, and chipboard embellishments and adhere them as shown. For my flowers and bows, I like to use the hot glue gun to assure that they have a strong hold. My chipboard embellishments were self-adhesive.
I added a light amount of embossing ink on the edges of the butterfly, sprinkled with pink iridescent embossing powder and set it for an extra twinkle. A few splatters of white acrylic were also added.
I added a couple of stick pin pearls from my created stash of them as an accent.
