Create a Quick and Easy Iridescent Birthday Card with StyleTechCraft Opal Vinyl.
When making a card using StyleTechCrafts Opal Vinyl, a regular picture just won’t do.
You need to see the shimmery iridescent fun.
StyleTechCraft’s Opal Vinyl is one of the coolest vinyl they have.
The colors shift dramatically based on light and their surroundings and adds a little
razzle dazzle to this simple birthday card.

- Cut several 3/4″ strips of Opal Vinyl and stick it onto a 4 1/2″ X 6″ piece of black cardstock. For my card I used Pink, Blue and Green Opal Vinyl.
- Trim the excess vinyl strips from the sides of the cardstock.
- Cut the cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″.
- Place the cardstock into the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder* and run the paper and folder through the Big Shot Machine*.
- The embossing folder creates a wonderful raised background.
- Using my Silhouette Cameo Wireless Cutting Machine*…I designed the words “Happy Happy Birthday to You”.
- I strategically placed strips of Opal Vinyl onto my cutting mat so that the words line up with the vinyl.
- Cut the words using the Silhouette Cameo Wireless Cutting Machine*.
- Using a weeding tool carefully remove the negative spaces in and around the letters.
- Place a piece of Vinyl Transfer Tape* over the letters. Rub over the letters using a vinyl scraper tool to help the vinyl cling
- Apply words onto a piece of 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ white cardstock.
- Remove transfer tape.
- To give the card additional dimension…I added a piece of thin foam onto the back of the white cardstock.
- Adhere the layers onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card.
