A Birthday Card-Set with Impression Obsession Cut-out Dies

Hello and welcome back to my Blog. I've got a Birthday Card-Set to share for my DT post over at the DRU Inspirational Blog.  I'm using some fun Impression Obsession mini cut-out dies!

Card 1
 Card 2
Card 3
Impression Obsession - Dies - Circle Birthday Cutout Set
Other Products Used; 
Creative Expressions Foundations Gold Mirrored Card, Foiled DP Card-stock Stack, White Card-stock, Photo Paper, Gold Flat-back Gems, Foam Adhesive
Mat Designer Paper over a panel of White Card-stock - (doing this makes paper sturdy and helps to hold-up the die-cuts better).
Add foam adhesive to this layer and adhere to the white card base for dimension.
Next, add foam tape to the back of your white double-layered Happy Cutout. But before doing this, be sure to die-cut the "Birthday" word through the first Happy Panel and back-it with a small piece of gold mirrored card-stock before adhering both white Happy cuts. This will show the gold through the Birthday word.  After adhering the 2 White Happy Panels together, add foam tape to the backs as this creates depth. Then place over the DP.
 Isnt it fun how the lovely DP can be seen through the large Happy word cut-out?

I also added a golden Frame over the Happy word to separate and showcase the I/O cut-outs best.

At this point, die-cut several of the I/O Birthday cutouts to triple layer,  (I've die-cut these from the same DP to continue the look and adhered across), and begin to asssemble over the Happy openings.

Finished the look by ashering random gold gems on each card.  The end look is a clean and simple but with eye-catching interest.
That's it! I hope you will give these fun cutting dies a try!  :)

Note; This project leaves you with lots of fabulous extra cuts like these below that'll be so great to have for using on future projects!
