Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I've used papers from Phill Martin's Chic Floral 8 x 8 Paper Pad.

I cut a frame out of Coconut White Card using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A for the outside edge and Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B for the inside edge. I inked through the dies with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink using a Smoothie. I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Scribbled Corner Sentiments Everyday Stamp Set using Magenta Hue Archival.

 I stamped the scribbled frame and another sentiment, both from Phill Martin's Scribbled Frame Sentiments Stamp Set again using Magenta Hue Archival. I cut it out and a mat out of the plain side of a Chic Floral Paper using the  Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics Sets, inking through the sentiment panel with Victorian Velvet.

I cut a couple of leaves out of the plain side of a Chic Floral Paper using Sue Wilson's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set. I made a couple of flowers out of Felt using Sue's Classic Foldover Flowers Die Set (see my video on how to make these here).

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges with my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Be sure to pop by later to see if you have won the card from last Friday's post.

Thanks for stopping by.
