I was pleased with Oli's birthday card and decided to tweak the design for another birthday card to put in my box of spare cards. I'm entering Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes', Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes' and Ally's Angels 'Anything Goes'.
Card blank: 6" x 6" white matt
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Beautiful Blooms' Art Pad
Stamp: Hobby Art 'General Greetings'
Dies: My Favourite Things ' Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner'
Ink: Versafine Crimson Red
Card: Dark red matt
Paper: Green spot
I trimmed the green spot paper, layered it onto dark red card and attached it to the centre of the card blank. I die cut the pre-coloured Art Pad image, ensuring the vase of flowers was in the middle of the die. As I wanted the image to cover the full length of the card, I die cut the flat end of the banner on the piece of waste card from the top of the vase. I drew around the die onto red card to form my matt layer and trimmed it to size. The flower image was attached to the bottom of the matt layer and I trimmed the die cut scrap to cover the top. I stamped the sentiment onto the waste card from the bottom of the die cut image (this ensured all the whites are the same), layered it onto red card and attached it across the join using foam tape.
