Good Sunday morning all! Today's card is one that is made with a single die, but I really like that it is lively and bright! I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder for some background texture. Next I cut a wide strip of white card and backed it with sky blue for a thin mat. I raised it with foam and attached it to the centre of the background. Next I cut the Belgian Tag three times in white. I stamped my Happy Birthday sentiment three times in black and cut each of them out with the inside die from the tag. I mounted each with foam on top of the tags. I cut a strip of blue and white Grosgrain ribbon and wove it through the edges of each of the tags as there is a thin slit there that is just perfect for ribbon. I attached the three tags down the centre strip of the card, cutting the end of the ribbon into a fork and wrapping the top around the back of the card. I tied a double bow and attached it at the top of the card. I completed the card with a simple white on white mat. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size.
