SumMoreFun ~ Challenge #19 ~ Try Something New

Good Morning Dreamerz,

Today is the start of Challenge #19 on the SumMoreFun Designs BlogThe Theme/Mood Board for this challenge is: "Try Something New".  Here's my inspiration for you using:
Happy Birthday to make a Flap Card which I have always admired and never had tried myself.  This was relatively easy to make.  I say relatively because it took me 2 tries to get the die positioned just right until I was happy.

Card Recipe:
 Using a top folding A2 sized of Neenah 110lb card stock I took a balloon edge die and die cut there I wanted the bottom of the balloon to be on the card. I then stamped the Happy Birthday using versamark and applied clear embossing powder and heat set the stamped image. Next I took a strip of post it tape and applied it to the top of the card to act as a mask. Using Distress ink in Wilted Violet I applied a heavy layer to the edges and top feathering the color lighter towards the center.  A bow from trendy twine and a strip of silver glitter washi tape were added for a lil extra dimension and sparkle.
