I cut out the pieces per the list above. I cut the center out of the brass foil leaving a 1/2 inch border. I took the center piece and cut a 5/8 inch strip off of one side. I use washi tape to hold my dies in place. I die cut using The World Map Dies the pieces shown and a squiggle (not shown) out of the brass pieces.
I stamped the Basic White card stock with the feather stamp, the “Happy Birthday” from the the Here’s a Card Stamp Set and the splatter from the Painted Poppies Stamp Set using Old Olive Ink. (This picture shows the splatter stamped directly on the paper. I decided that it was a bit dark so I made another with stamping off the splatter on a scrap piece of paper then stamping on my card.)
For this assembly, I cut 2 circles out of Vellum to put behind the globes. I adhered the globes to the vellum using Fine Tip Glue. I adhered the globe assembly to the sentiment piece using Glue Dots only under the globe’s solid area.
For the card front, I adhered the the World of Good Designer Series Paper to the Brass Foil mat. I cut the foil strip to even out the ends. I adhered the Brass Foil to the card front about 5/8 of an inch from the bottom using Fine Tip Glue.
For the final assembly, I adhered the sentiment assembly to the card front using dimensionals. I then adhered the the card front to the card base. Decorated the inside of the card and the envelope as desired.
