Birthday Greetings

 Hello crafters!  I started with the background and embossed a piece of white card with the Forget-Me-Not Flower Frame.  I used the Double Pierced Rectangles and made a white frame to go around it.  I cut the Birthday Big Bold Word in black and glued it to the inside area of the embossed background.  Using four shades of Glitter Kiss, I added each of them to a piece of card and allowed them to dry.  I cut the Birthday die out of each of them, then kept the fall away pieces and paper pieced them back into the Birthday die.  I used Vintage Violet, Ice Blue, Rose Copper and Bordeaux Glitter Kiss.  I stamped the word Greetings and cut it out with the tag die, then added it across the centre of the Birthday die cut.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finshed dimensions are 7 1/4"  x  9"   in size.  All for now,  Sue x

Hello Sue great card, striking colours, useful for lots of birthday celebrations xx

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, a lovely card and I can see this technique would be very useful with your bold Christmas dies. Depending on the number of colours used you have the makings for at least four cards and each one would look different.

This is a great card for a guy but a change of colors and you have a more feminine card or even a card for a child. It’s so versatile!
