Happiest Birthday

January 22, 2019

This card was created quite some time ago for a friend of mine who celebrated her birthday at the end of December!  I was a little late getting this in the post, which is why I am only now sharing it with you.  I began by embossing Whisper White card using the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Oh my, how pretty is this in real life.  The pictures in the catalogue don’t do it justice.  The embossed card is attached to scored and folded Gorgeous Grape card.  I cut Gorgeous Grape card using the die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits Dies and attached it to the embossed card.  I stamped the greeting from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set onto Whisper White card using Highland Heather ink and cut it out using one of the Stitched Shapes Framelits DiesI stamped the small butterfly image from the Butterfly Gala stamp set using Gorgeous Grape ink.  I added the body and the antennae using the same ink.  The fill image was stamped using Highland Heather ink.  I attached the greeting to a Gorgeous Grape scalloped circle cut using one of the Layering Circles Framelits Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the large and small outline butterfly images (they come as one image) onto Whisper White card using Gorgeous Grape ink.  I stamped the fill images using Highland Heather ink and the body images using Gorgeous Grape ink.  The butterflies are punched out (at the same time) using the Butterfly Duet Punch – amazing!  I attached the small butterfly to the centre of the large butterfly using a Glue Dot.  The butterflies are attached to the card front using a mini dimensional.  Once they were attached to the card front, I stamped the antennae image using Gorgeous Grape ink.  I think you are going to love this Gingham Gala suite.  It has co-ordinating Designer Series Paper, ribbon and sequins in the Occasions Catalogue and to complete the suite, you can earn more Designer Series Paper and co-ordinating ribbon free from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped and punched out the same butterflies using the same ink.  I attached the small butterfly to the centre of the large butterfly and attached them to Whisper White card.  Once they were attached, I stamped the antennae.

I’d love to hear what you think?

Bye for now,
