w&w 4th Birthday Bash | Four Challenge with Shay


Hello fellow party goers!  It's Shay here.  I am so excited to bring you my challenge.  To commemorate our 4th birthday I am following up on my One Challenge from our first year and Two Challenge from our second year and Three Challenge from last year.  This year it is the Four Challenge!


Make a new project using the number 4 or four, four colors, four patterns, four layers, four embellishments, four photos, four words or four stamp sets (and so on)...really anyway to incorporate four into your project!  You can focus on a single option or combine the options (for instance a four layer card using four colors + four embellishments).



I began with a background I had created some time ago using mixed medium and distress ink along with Scenery: Classic Diagonal Creative Screenings.  When I have a little time to play I create backgrounds and I find having some background panels sitting awaiting me whenever I need them really a great jumping off point and time saver.


I pulled out 4 colors (first use of the number 4) from the background and cut In a Word: Happy Cutaway from each of the cardstock colors so I have 4 happy's (4 again).  I adhered the four happy's to the background panel.  I also cut out the handwritten "happy" from In a Word: Happy Coordinating Cutaways from the 4 same colors and adhered 2 of them to fill in some of the space on the background.  Next I cut out the birthday tile from In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways 3 times out of white cardstock with the last not cutting the "birthday" all the way through.  I glued the fully cutout tiles on top of the one that did not cut out fully.  I adhered the birthday tile to the panel.  Then I filled in the open area of the "birthday" with Nuvo Crystal Drops for some shine and interest.

Last I added 3 greenish enamel dots to the top panel and 3 purple enamel dots to the bottom of the panel and added a white puffy star to the white panel so that there are 4 embellishments on top including the white star and 4 embellishments on the bottom of the card including the white star (4 again!)
