Create a Iridescent Birthday Card using StyletechCraft Opal Vinyl

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.

To make the Birthday Card I used…                                        (*amazon affiliate links)

  • 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″.

  • The embossing folder creates a wonderful raised background.

  • 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.

My MUCH OLDER and wiser sister recently turned 60.

Being the sweet little sister that I am… I thought I’d embarrass her with a pair of fun

party glasses.  (since she a bit shy, I’m modeling them instead)

  • Smoothfoam Sheet
  • Computer Generated Clip Art
  • Craft Knife

Here’s how I made the glasses:

  1. Print clip art numbers onto white printer paper and cut them out.
  2. Tape the number together before tracing them onto a Smoothfoam sheet.
  3. Cut numbers out with craft knife.
  4. Paint the numbers a lipstick pink.  (my preference)
  5. After the painted numbers have dried, coat the letters with Mod Podge and sprinkle with glamour dust.glittering the numbers 6130
