3D Birthday Cards


 Welcome back to my blog friends.
Today I'm sharing 3 birthday cards I created using another sheet of 3D stackables.  As I mentioned in a previous post, I've had these sheets for years and some of the companies I originally purchased them from are no longer in business ... but I know there are other companies out there that carry these sort of sheets.  

I didn't think to snap a photo of the sheet I used for today's cards but here are a couple of sheets I have to give you an idea when they look like.  Each panel pops out and as you can see, they are numbers so you know which panel comes next in the stacking order.
If you go in search of these sheets, be sure to make sure they are perforated pieces ... I have seen sheets like this that you have to cut out yourself ... you don't want to have to do that!  (ask me how I know! lol)

Here are the other two cards I created from the same sheet . . .

The panels used on the left side of this card front are scraps from other projects. 
Also, I have several different shaped frames that have been die cut for one reason or another and then not used so I have them hanging on a hook and figured that would be a good thing to grab for today's card designs.    

For this card I simply attached my rose then added dimensional take to the back of the flower as well as the oval before adhering to my card front.  A sweet sentiment and this card is ready to go.

 For my third card I've once again used an oval panel from the hook to showcase my 3D yellow roses.  The background paper is another panel from my Altenew 6x6 paper pad collection and the green vines are a new (to me) die I recently purchased from The Greetery.  It's called 'A Side of Greens' die.

I'm in need of many, many more birthday cards for my sale boxes before the November craft shows so you'll be seeing more birthday cards tomorrow using yet another 3D sheet. 

I'm trying to get my stash built up and in the meantime utilize some of the product I've had sitting around here for years.  Time to show it some love!

 Thanks so much for stopping by today and as always . . .




  1. Oh my stars, these are stunning! I don't think I ever came in contact with this product before but I probably wouldn't be so keen to make my own if I had! I just love these glorious roses!

  2. So the first word that popped into my mind was "Stunning" and I'm sticking with it. WOW! All three of them are absolutely stunning. I love the pushout sheets. Cutting sheets are a pain for me. My poor thumb suffers after having to spend all that time fussy cutting. I know that there are many crafters that enjoy the activity of fussy cutting. They find it very relaxing. I have a friend who loves it especially sitting by a window when it's raining :-) It does sound relaxing doesn't it? My relaxing time is stitching on cards :-) Enjoy the rest of your day. Hugs

  3. These are so gorgeous! Super stunning cards!

  4. I agree that the pop out ones are much nicer, I have both kinds, don't care to much for the fussy cutting, of some of them because they are quite intricate. These are just gorgeous with the look of gold foiling, I predict they are going to be a big hit at the show :)

  5. Dear Darlene
    They are stay safe

  6. Wow WOW, such gorgeous cards, Darlene! The shimmer is amazing! Thank you for showing the sheets and sharing your tips from experience. I wasn't exactly sure what stackables were, but now I know. Beautiful!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
