Happy Birthday Sunshine

Kia ora Koutou

I have been going through my considerable stash of dies that I have and I decided it was time to start using them in my cards. I have also been going through my cardstock stash and discovered some very pretty cardstock that I have forgotten about. Once again my card has been inspired by one that Becca Feeken has done but I have put my own twist in it by using slightly different dies and cardstock. I love the bright and summery colours I have used and that this card can be mailed easily as it is flat.

My project

I have created a top folding 6″ x 6″ base card out of heavy pearlescent cardstock. I then layered yellow and pearlescent cardstock to create the base for the decorative dies. I die cut layers out of pearlescent and yellow cardstock using the dies from the A2 Scalloped Borders One Dies from Spellbinders. I have slightly decreased the size of the top two layers to create some interest.

I die cut a large and medium label from the Amazing Paper Grace Francesca Labels – the larger label from yellow cardstock and the smaller from pearlescent card stock and these were added to the top of the card. I then die cut the band using the die from the Spellbinders Romantic Agenda set out of pearlescent card stock and then added some yellow cardstock behind it. I die cut two small ovals from the Spellbinders Floral Ovals die – one from pearlescent cardstock and one from yellow. I removed the little stars from the pearlescent oval and added the yellow oval behind so the yellow stars would show. I then added this oval behind the embossed oval on the band. This was then added to the card over the base of the labels as shown.

I reverse hot foiled the sentiment from the Spellbinders Be Bold Glimmer Sentiment in gold and die cut with the coordinating die. I die cut two extra plain dies and stacked them together with the foiled sentiment on top. This was added to the top of the card as shown.

I die cut flowers and leaves from the Spellbinders Be Bold Blooms from blue, yellow and green cardstock. I die cut the leaf accents out of gold cardstock and then added the flowers and leaves to the top left of the card and peeking out of the bottom right of the band.

I die cut two butterflies from the Amazing Paper Grace Butterfly Bliss Garden Shutters Dies out of pearlescent, yellow and gold cardstock, assembled them and adhered them to the card as shown.

To finish I added pearls to the centre of the band, around the sentiment and the top corners.
