Birthdays Are The Best Days

 Hello bloggers!  I started this very simple card by embossing a piece of white card with the Fanciful Flowers embossing folder.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to make a very wide white frame to go over it and added it with mounting foam.  Next I inked the Wild Rose Cluster Stampcut die with Black Archival ink and ran it through the machine to cut it.  I did this twice, using one whole die cut and then I nipped away a single rose from the cluster on the second one.  I used Distress Markers to colour the roses (Forest Moss, Fossilized Aber and Barn Door and Festive Berries).  I attached the cluster in the lower corner and the single rose in the opposite corner.  I cut the Birthdays Are The Best Days sentiment in black and glued it inside the frame.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are    7 1/2"  x  7 1/2"  in size.  All for now, Sue x
