So excited to finally share with you the new Heffy Doodle Release - and it's a beauty!! Two of my favorites are the Party Palooza Set and the Everyday Sentiment Duos and I have used them to create this sweet Birthday card.
If you'd like a handy hint too on how to use your portrait backdrop/cover dies on a landscape card....read on!! 

I first stamped the images from the Party Palooza set onto white smooth card in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with copics. I cut them out and applied some white gel pen for accents and some Nuvo shimmer pen to help them sparkle. I attached embrodery thread to the balloons for strings.

I stamped the happy Birthday sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments Duos onto a black card strip with versamark ink and white embossed it. 



To make the background piece for this card, I used the Altenew Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die. Now, this die is in portrait orientation and I wanted it go go across the card (in landscape) so that the curves immitated the curves in the icing of the cake in the Party Palooza Set. This is how I did it....
I first positioned half the card on the die as per below.
I then positioned the die down on my Big Shot with the card in place and put the top plate so that I didn't reach the 'cutting' edge of the die.  I rang it through my Big Shot but only just over half-way across the card.
This effectively debossed one half of the cardfront.
I then positioned the other half of the card on the debossing plate fitting the previously impressed pattern into the correct part of the die. 

I secured with tape to keep it in place and ran it though my Big Shot same as before - positioning the top plate and only running it through just over half-way & back again.
Viola! Quite quick and easy!
I then used the My Favorite Things Stitched Window Die to cut 3 windows in this piece and attached it to a white cardbase.  I positioned all my images in the windows and adhered them. I adhered my sentiment strip along the bottom and finished the card off with sequins.


Hope you enjoyed and it inspires you to have fun with the new release!
