I need greeting cards for Spanish speaking friends. Have you run into this problem? I figured out one solution by turning the word “celebrate” into the Spanish word “celebrar” for this birthday card. As they say, “necessity is the mother of invention.”

The word “celebrate” is in the Sale-A-Bration die set, Celebrate You. I cut two words from Thick Whisper White cardstock. I snipped off the “te” from the first one, and took the “r” from the second. I spliced them together, which barely showed, but you can see how I covered any detection with a star.

 

The features of my project were determined by two challenges. I chose a diagonal row in the Tic Tac Toe challenge, Celebrate-Emboss-Green.

Lemon Lime Twist is my green, embossed with the Oh My Stars embossing folder, and we’ve talked about “celebrar.”

The sketch design is from CAS(E)this sketch.

I didn’t have to use candles, but they would go perfectly with my “celebrar” sentiment. I remembered these cute, little candles that I could die cut from the Celebration die set. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends after cutting five of them. Can you see how three candles are attached together?

After gluing the candles and sentiment, I layered the star embossed, Lemon Lime Twist on Tempting Turquoise cardstock. This was layered on a Thick Whisper White card base.

Lastly, I punched four small stars, and popped them up on mini-dimensionals. One for cover-up, and three to make a wish!

I hope you enjoyed turning “celebrate” into “celebrar.” I’ll be thinking of more ways to create Spanish sentiments.

Thanks for visiting me today. Have a great weekend!
