Card CASE: Happy Birthday Thinlet and Paper Pumpkin News

Today I am featuring the Happy Birthday Thinlet on two cards that I made for a Pink and Yellow swap.  I CASEd this card design from M. Deathrage on Pinterest.  Since I am mailing this overseas, to The Netherlands, I needed this card to be flat, so no dimensionals on this one.  I made two cards with Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo cardstock and watercolor pencils, no stamps at all.  So simple and easy to make.

Card Measurements:
Daffodil Delight Card Base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Melon Mambo Layer 5 1/4 x  4
 Whisper White  5 1/8 x  3 7/8
Card Measurements:
Melon Mambo Card Base 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Daffodil Delight  Layer 5 1/4 x  4
 Whisper White  5 1/8 x  3 7/8

Technique Tip: I die cut the Happy Birthday, laid it on a sheet of copy paper and covered it with Versa Mark, applied Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder (sadly retired) and heated up with my Heat Tool.  Turned out beautiful.  You could do the same with glue and Dazzling Diamonds.
