Bohemian Birthday

This turned out to be a simple masculine birthday card.  I used my MISTI to line up the diamond stamps on the left.  I kept the stamps on the cover, but moved the paper each time so that everything came out straight up and down.

To line up the birthday greeting on the acrylic block, I first lined it up (smooth side up) on my grid paper.  Then I pressed the block, which has grid lines etched on one side, onto the stamp so that I could keep it straight along the diamond strip.  To finish off the card, I mounted the panel with dimensionals on a light green card (looks white here) and added the sequins.

I've added a few new tools in the Tower lately that have really been a help.  My faves are the MISTI, the magnetic platform for the Big Shot, and the mint-colored B plates which I no longer have to hunt for on my table.

The Misti is a wonderful tool, isn't it! Great job of lining the diamonds up!
