Happy Birthday

Good Sunday morning all!  I have a sweet birthday card to share with you today.  I started with the background and used Beyond Blue Pixie Sparkles all over a piece of white card.  Once dry, I cut it into the slimline shape and cut the Slimline Stitched Rectangle Aperture Trio in white and added it with foam over the background.  Using the Birthday Shadow Box die set, I cut three presents out of pastel card and added white bows to them and attached them in the bottom aperture.  I cut three party hats out of the same pastel card colours and attached them in the upper aperture.   I added Iced Snow to the tops of the party hats.   I used the Stacked Happy Birthday sentiment cut in white with an offset back shadow and added it to the centre of the card.  I cut three pastel balloons and attached them to the upper part of the frame and drew the strings with a fine tip black pen.  The card was completted with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 4 1/4"  x  8 3/4"  in size.  All for now. Sue x

Ann Topp said...

Good Morning Sue. I am sure I don't have to tell you that at the moment these slimline card collections are my favourite. I personally can't get enough of them ... And my scrap box is certainly looking a little emptier since I started making these. I like them any way up, landscape or portrait. And this mornings offering is no exeption. Beautiful for any age barrier ... and a change of colours... It can be a man card. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today


Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds

Happy 4th of July to you and all our American wilsonettes, enjoy your celebrations. Slimline cards are now my favourite thanks to all your wonderful dies and I love this Birthday one with the pixie sparkle background and all the little things from the birthday shadowbox set. I made my first Christmas card yesterday and guess what, it was a slimline card!!

Love and hugs to everyone
