Birthday Card Challenge

4 Comments

 

I decided to participate in another challenge with SVG Cutting Files.  This challenge is for birthday cards, the main focus should be something purchased from SVG Cutting Files.

I found it a little more difficult to make a card without someone specific in mind.  I knew I wanted to make a Halloween birthday card at least, but in order to get the free files associated with the challenge I had to make two cards.

Since I am a scientist I thought I need to make a birthday card using the Science Rocks kit I had.

I made the card base to look like a benzene ring and used the science girl and test tube rack.

Inside it says “it has been scientifically proven that too many birthdays will kill you.”

I love using clear sticker paper for glass elements, like the test tubes and her goggle lenses.

For the Halloween birthday card I used the Chibi Werewolf file.  I had actually purchased the set for the mummy, but the werewolf was perfect for this idea.  Inside it says ‘Have a howling good birthday!’

I designed the card base to be like a haunted house.  I used sketch pens to draw the spider webs in the windows.  Parts of the tree are not glued down so the stick out for some dimension.

I also used dimensional foam tabs to pop out the ‘roar’ word balloon.

I, of course, used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out all the elements for the card.

Don’t forget to go to the challenge page and see all the other amazing projects.
