Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

A mix of dies on this one -

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from John Lockwood's Scribble Rose Elements Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A and cut a mat out of Cobalt Card using Spellbinders Matting Basics B.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Floral Assortment Die Set out of Coconut White Card.

I cut the largest die only in Sue's Ornate Pierced Squares Noble Die Set out of Cobalt Card. I cut the largest 3 dies from the same set out of Coconut White Card and glued the 2 die cuts together.

I made a flower out of Cobalt Card using Spellbinders Flower Play Die Set following Sue's tutorial here and here. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Dies Clear Glue and some Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels. I cut a couple of leaves using Sue's Delicate Fronds Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  9. Morning Julia, A gorgeous card, fabulous die-cuts and beautiful colours. The Nobles are next on my list.
    Just to let you know my youngest Granddaughter (I told you last Saturday) gave birth to 'Sophia Grace' on Sunday, weighing 7 lb 1 oz, she is gorgeous, my Daughter sent me a piccie by text moments after her birth. They were due to come home last evening, so I'm hoping to go this morning, I can't wait for a 'cuddle'.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  22. Hello Julia,
    Really spectacular card today. I love the cobalt and white together, really gives the card a pop. The added diecut from the Spellbinders die inside of the Noble die really gives it a lace-like effect. Good job.

  32. I'll swear I commented earlier but under another name. Had to redo my profile and nothing is the same.

    That said, that is a lovely combination Julia. The Cobalt blue card is fabulous and with the the White, combines to stunning effect. The Nobel dies have to be on my birthday wish list.
