Happy Birthday

I made this card for the Cardz for Gals 'Black, white and one bright colour' challenge.  I'm also entering the Die-Cut Divas 'Anything Goes' and Seize the Birthday 'Vibrant Colours' challenges.  The card is from my snippets drawers so I'm heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 7" x 7" white matt
Dies: Apple Blossom 'Cherry Tree' (magazine freebie), Creative Expressions 'Mini Happy Birthday'
Colouring: Black Promarker
Snippets: Black, white and cerise matt card

I die cut two cherry tree dies from black card and then trimmed another piece of black card to make a square the width of the die cut.  I trimmed a piece of white card, layered it onto the black square and attached it to the card front.  I then used Stick and Spray glue to attach the two die cuts to the top and bottom of the card.  I ran a black Promarker around the inside edge of the flowers as I wanted to ensure the white card didn't show around the edges of the inlaid flowers.  I cut the blossoms from several snippets of cerise card and inlaid them.  To finish I die cut 'Happy Birthday' from black card and attached it across the centre.

  11. A beautiful card! And a great idea to add a little black behind your die cuts before insetting the cerise pieces, I'll have to remember that tip! Thanks for linking this card up at Seize the Birthday!
