Hello everyone. This is Amanda from Twiddler’s Nook again. Today I get to join you for camping week with a fun foiled birthday card! We just went camping last weekend and it was so much fun!
I have always had an attraction to camping-themed things like decor and stamps so it was really fun to create today’s project. I hope you enjoy it too!

This card was super fun and came together in a flash. I turned my laminator on to heat up and stamped my images. I colored them with Copic markers and cut out the next-to-largest wonky stitched rectangle from white cardstock. I used blending brushes with dye inks to create a ground and sky. Super simple, nothing detailed because most get covered up.
Then, I added red Deco Foil transfer to a full sheet of dauntless toner sheet from Laura Kelly. I saved the negative because it will look really cool later with a full toner sheet too! I trimmed this panel down to 4.25×5.5 inches and also kept the scraps because I use them for other projects like tags.
Next, I trimmed out “happy birthday” from the Happy Everything adhesive transfer sheet and arranged my images loosely where I wanted them. Just to figure out sentiment placement in the sky. I removed the images and added the adhesive transfers one at a time – happy is centered so I added it first by removing the backing sheet and sticking it to the panel. I placed it in a Craft & Carrier sheet and ran it through my laminator because it was still on.
I peeled off the top acetate leaving behind the sticky adhesive. I placed foil over the top and ran it through the laminator again. Once that was done, I placed the birthday down and did the same steps all over again. Super simple and a really fun way to add your sentiment.
With everything foiled and ready to go, I started compiling my scene. The garbage can, lid, and some grass were added with liquid glue, then everything else was added with foam squares. At that point, I added foam tape to the back of the wonky rectangle and started to add it to my foiled panel. It was so plain that I decided to ink blend red ink over the whole thing for a bolder look. I love it this way!
Here’s a look tilted in the light. You can see the fun foiling on the sentiment and the toner panel. It adds a lot of visual texture and fun to your designs.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project and found some inspiration to create something wonderful to share with someone.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
