Happy Birthday


Hello my crafty friends!  Today's offering is a super simple one but I love the results!  I started with a piece of coconut white card and embossed it with the Rose bed 3D folder for texture.  Next I used the Cosmos Flower Stamp set and stamped a bunch of them in different sizes and used the corresponding Cosmos Flower dies to cut them out.  I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink on the tips of the flowers and worked it towards the centres, leaving it a bit stronger there.  I assembled the flowers and attached them in opposite corners.  I stamped the leaves from the stamp set and cut them out with the matching dies from the Cosmos Flower set.  I used Forest Moss Distress Oxide ink on them and glued them around the flowers in the corners.  Next I cut the Noble Happy Birthday die out of Wisteria and black card.  I used Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink again on the top ad bottom edges of the Happy Birthday, then used the black die cut as a shadow behind the letters.  I glued it in the centre of the card.  The card was completed with white, wisteria and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  8 1/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue. It's white over with a deep sparkling frost so it's time for my hibernation to begin, when you show cased both the Expression and the Cosmos dies at launch my whole list of needs changed and these were straight at the top, this sample is nothing more than delightful, clean and gorgeous but want to go the full on, then why not but Sue this is my kind of card. Thank you for your daily inspiration without it, I'd be totally lost. Wherever you are have a lovely day xxx

Hello Sue and all
When I saw this card on release I had to have the cosmos die set and stamps as well as that beautiful Noble sentiment. I have still to make something like this as Christmas has taken over at the moment but you have given me something to work towards,

It cheered me up no end............ having come to the conclusion that not all of my friends will receive a Xmas card made by my own fair hands.
