Newton's Nook Designs March Release | Birthday Essentials

Hello all and welcome to the final day of Newton's Nook March Release! If you can't tell, the theme this week has been all about birthdays and celebrations.  Today, we continue that theme with the new set called Birthday Essentials. This is a great set of scripty sentiments, similar to the super popular Sentiments of the Season that was released for Christmas cards.

Foiled Background

Along with the fun birthday theme each day this week, I decided to challenge myself to use the new stencils being released in a different way each day. So far, I've dry embossed, inked and used texture paste with glitter. Today, I went with a Foiled Background technique I've shared in a past post about Stenciled Backgrounds. I invite you to check out that post for the full tutorial and even more inspiration on how to use stencils. They are such a fun tool to play with when creating cards because of their versatility and all the different techniques you can use with them!

For this Birthday Card, I added a touch of shine using Therm O Web Transfer Gel, Deco Foil and Newton's Nook Designs Confetti Stencil. The Deco Foil I used on this card is called Summer Rainbow.

Once the foiled background was complete, I trimmed it to size and adhered it to the card front. I then wrapped a bit of sheer ribbon around the card front. The sentiment is from the Birthday Essentials stamp set and is heat embossed with white embossing powder. After I adhered it to the card front, I finished off the design with a small bow!

This is a rather quick and easy card to put together once the Transfer Gel dries. One tip I can share is that I like to do up several panels at once and put them to the side for future projects!
