Happy Birthday Sarah

January 15, 2019

My eldest daughter Sarah is celebrating her birthday today, so I thought you might like to see the card I made for her.  I created this card whilst I was “playing” with the Needle and Thread stamp set and co-ordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies for the first time.  I stamped the stitched filigree image onto the top of Whisper White card using Smoky Slate ink.  I stamped the large flower once onto Whisper White card using Merry Merlot ink which I had stamped off first, and cut it out using the co-ordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die.  I stamped the small flower onto Whisper White card using Merry Merlot ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating die.  I stamped the stitched leaf image onto Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Needlepont Elements Framelits  Die.  I cut Mossy Meadow card three times using the leaf die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies.  I attached the large flower onto the stitched leaf image and attached the open leaves to the back of these pieces.  I attached the whole piece to Whisper White card.  The panel is attached to Smoky Slate card and then the stamped Whisper White card.  I attached the small flower to the centre of the large flower using a dimensional.  I added a medium Clear Glimmer Dot to the centre of the flower.  I stamped “happiest of birthday to you” from the Needle and Thread stamp set using Mossy Meadow ink before attaching the whole panel to scored and folded Smoky Slate card.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the leaf image from the Needle and Thread stamp set onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Mossy Meadow ink.  I stamped the three small flower image onto Whisper White card using Merry Merlot ink and cut them out using the co-ordinating Needlepoint Elements Framelits Die (you stamp the three flowers together and cut them out with the one die to give three individual flowers).  I attached one of the flowers over the ends of the stamped leaves.

This is a really lovely stamp set which I know I am going to love using.  It has many, many possibilities, I just need to have more time to “play”.

Bye for now,

Kris
