Happy Birthday

Hello everyone. I am sharing with a birthday card that I have made. It follows the latest challenge from The Shabby Tea Room. Birthdays come around so quickly so I thought it's a good idea to start stock piling them! For the challenge, you are asked to create a card or project inspired the COLORS AND THEME of the photo!

I love Spellbinders dies and I wanted to use a decorative die to create a shaped card. I die cut a decorative labels eight die on the fold of pale pink cardstock. Place the die just over the folded edge so that it creates a fold. I repeated this again with a single piece of cardstock. I applied glossy elements to the folded section and attached both pieces together.

I selected a smaller decorative labels eight die and die cut some pale pink card stock and then used the labels eight die to die cut some patterened pink paper. I used a labels die then stamped my sentiment using some left over background paper. It needed something extra so I used another die and die cut it with creme cardstock. Some pearls, bow and ribbon complete my card.


Paper: Prima Tea Thyme, Kaisercaft ballet and Stampin' Up! very vanilla

Stamp: JustRite fleur de lis labels twenty

Ink: Memento tuxedo black

Other: Spellbinders decorative labels eight, labels eight, fancy framed tags one and twisted metal tags and accents, Hug Snug lyric rose seam binding, Kaisercraft pearls, Becca's peg bow maker.

Thanks for stopping by!
