Hello, friends:}

I'm back with my cards that were featured on the Momenta blog earlier this week {click HERE to check it out}!!! I am so excited that I've joined the Momenta team! I am with an AMAZING group of gals! 

I just love the paper pad Family Outings by Momenta! I knew that I wanted to make a birthday card for a young child (or even an adult) by fussy cutting some of the patterned paper. I used this video tutorial to make my card. This tutorial is super easy to follow! Once I had the basic card design completed, I modified the instructions by adding a banner on the top half of the card. This is very tricky since you don't want the banner to be too tight and you don't want it to get caught in the pop-up section. I used some Glue Arts Micro Squares to adhere the twine and banner pieces. Even though these adhesive pieces are "micro" in size--I rolled them to make them even smaller to fit behind the twine. It worked perfectly!
I also used the Glue Arts U CUT IT 3D foam for the fussy cut elephant piece. I just love this little guy! I wanted to add extra dimension and this foam worked well!! I thought originally that this foam was the same as other foam--not very thick in size. WRONG! Glue Arts U CUT IT 3D foam is 3D! Super thick and perfect for making elements pop off your page.
I think this card turned out super cute! I cannot wait to send it to my nephew!
When you pull or slide the tab up, a secret message is revealed:)

For my second card, I made a version of the Tent Card using this tutorial. I created another birthday card because the Momenta Let's Party paper pad was perfect for this theme! I used the Glue Arts High Tac GlueGlider Pro to attach all my papers. I also used the U CUT IT 3D Foam to help the cupcake stand out better. 
My favorite part of this card is that instead of gluing the tent card together (so it wouldn't open)....I added magnets to the bottom piece! This allows you to write on the inside, as well as have the "tent" effect. It was SUPER easy to add the magnets--just run the GlueGlider Pro on the back and attach. PERFECT:}
