Happy Birthday

Hi crafters!  Happy Birthday and a Hummingbird for today's offering.  I started with a piece of wisteria card and embossed it with the Brambled Rose embossing folder for texture.  Next I used the Double Stitched Circles and cut a multi layered frame using white as the base of the frame and a thinner ring of Iris card.  I added it to the centre of the card with  a white base on mounting foam.  Next I made two Triple Layered Fuchsias using Iris card for the top layers, wisteria for the middle and white as the base colour.  I added eaves that were made of three different shades of green from my stash.  I added the flowers to the top of the card so they were peeking out from underneath the frame's edge.  Next I made the Triple Layered Hummingbird using tan card on top, Nutmeg card as the middle and wisteria as the base.  I attached him to the other side of the frame.  I used the Happy Birthday shadowed sentiment cut in Iris card with a white shadow base and glued it inside the frame.  White, wisteria and iris card mats and layers ere used to complete the card.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. A mix of lovely colours to highlight your new dies. Receiving a card like this would make anyone's birthday in my opinion and it would certainly be staying on show long after my birthday had passed. What a fantastic week of stunning inspiration you've given us thank you xxx

Hi Sue
FAB-YOO-LUSS!!
I am in love with the triple layering dies - but I think I may have mentioned that once or twice! The hummingbird is so beautiful. I have told myself that if my wish does come true and I receive any of the layering dies I so desperately want on Mothering Sunday, I will have no choice but to kick off my cardmaking for 2019 in spectacular style!
Happy Friday everyone

Hi Sue, a beautiful card that anyone would be pleased to receive. The Triple Layered Fuchsias are gorgeous as is the Hummingbird. I really must see if I can get the Brambled Rose embossing folder, it would be very useful.

Just watched Julia on Hochanda. She always does a great job and I personally will miss her and the CE gang.
I used this card as inspiration for a special birthday card. The triple layer dies are inspired. I am loving them even more than I thought I would.
Everyone, I hope your weekend is wonderful,
