Rolled Paper Birthday Card
general Nerd Academy Tips & Tutorials
We all know that 6×6 paper pads are perfect for card making, but the size of the pattern makes them perfect to create custom made embellishments for any project. I used a 6×6 pad to embellish a Tim Holtz Stamp by rolling paper and adding it to the stamped image.
I made this card using a fabulous Tim Holtz stamp, a Faber-Castell Big Brush Pen and a 6×6 paper pad! You can find all of these items in the Scrapbook Nerd Store.
- I started out by choosing my papers that I wanted to use.
- Stamp the image twice, onto two separate pieces of paper.
- Cut the frosting part of the cupcake off the second image. Colour with a medium of your choice. (I used a Faber Castel Big Brush Pen – that can be found at Scrapbook Nerd – that I scribbled onto my craft mat then picked up with a water pen for a fun watercolor look.)
- I cut them into 1×6 inch strips, then each strip was cut in half so I had 1×3 pieces. This gave me the thickness I was after once the pieces were rolled.
- Before rolling, curl the end of the strips with your fingers back and forth to soften the starting edge.
- Roll tightly.
- Once they’re rolled, I suggest using hot glue to seal them, because I found the other adhesive just wasn’t strong enough!
- Once they’re all rolled, just use the glue gun again to secure them onto the stamped cupcake.
- Add the Frosting piece.
- Finish off by adding another rolled piece for the candle.
Now you have an adorable 3D stamped image to add to your card.
