Happy Birthday ~ Shadow Effect

Birthday cards are probably the most type of card we make and send, yes well Thank You cards are right up there as well – I do send a lot of those!  ………..

………Back to birthday cards……  I like to make a batch of about half a dozen so that I have a few in my stash in case I need one in a hurry.  In the 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog there is a single die, tucked away on page 213 (and pictures on page 76) which makes a lovely center piece for my card.  I used it as a single layer – which was fine, but felt it needed a little something more so I doubled it up to form a ‘shadow’ effect, and here I have a video to share the technique with you 🙂
