I’ve got a gleaming Birthday card with a fun fold you’ll love. It’s so gorgeous and you’re going to love this DIY Birthday card idea.

This card has beautiful colors with touches of my favorite…COPPER!  My heart will be sad when we don’t carry this Brightly Gleaming designer series paper as of January 2, 2020.  I am kinda hoarding it and using it for everything like this gleaming Birthday card!  But, what about for Mother’s Day?  Thank you cards?  Oh I can see I have more cards coming using it!

I loved the Detailed Band Dies for this card too.  Was perfect to pull in more Copper!


Taking pictures of Copper isn’t easy so I am showing different angles for you to see it in its glory!  On my video I share a ton of tips so make sure you watch it!  You will also see what else I was going to put on this card when I decided it was just not the right thing!


Pretty Peacock with Copper is so pretty and before this DSP came along I had not thought of that.  I will be using my Copper with Pretty Peacock cardstock more often now!

On my video I shared a tip about testing your cardstock when wanting to use Stampin’ Blends.  I originally was going to stamp the butterfly from Painted Glass on the inside and color it with Stampin’ Blends but I tested it first on a scrap of Very Vanilla Thick cardstock.  As you can see it bleeds so I opted not to color it!
