Hello Happy Birthday

Kia ora Koutou

I have another birthday card to share with you using more of the clematis flowers that I made last week for my YouTube channel. Once again I have used a die that I have had in my stash for many years. I love dies that have ornate decorative features and lots of lattice and this die from Sue Wilson – Striplets – Lattice Window is one that I will never give away. I love making layers to create dimension and depth and here I have die cut several times to get the dimension I wanted and was able to use all the die cuts with no waste. Another bonus. I have also started going through my cardstock stash and begun using my old stock up. Another bonus! Overall I was really happy with how this card turned out.

My Project

For my card I have created a side folding 5″ x 7″ card out of white cardstock. I then layered up white pearlescent cardstock to create the base for the decorative dies. I die cut three lattice windows out of the pearlescent card. I stacked three outer frames together and added it to the centre of the card. I die cut the lattice inner using the left over inner panels and adhered them to the centre and sides of the decorative lattice window.

I die cut three ‘hello’ dies – two from scrap pearlescent card and one from silver card. I stacked the sentiments together with the silver on top and then adhered it to the bottom right of the decorative windows.

I hot foiled the sentiment using silver holographic foil on pearlescent card and die cut it with the coordinating die. I matted the sentiment using silver metallic cardstock and added it below the ‘hello’ sentiment with some foam tape.

I then made the leaves and flowers (see video below my list of products I have used) and adhered them to the card as shown.
