Stylish Birthday

April 19, 2019

A neighbour of mine recently celebrated a milestone birthday and today I am sharing the card I created for her.  I cut a piece of the All My Love Designer Series Paper on the diagonal.  (Since I started following Kylie Bertucci on her Facebook Page #Love it Chop it, I am getting so much more use from the Designer Series Paper.)  I cut a piece of Lovely Lipstick card using the die from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies and attached it behind the diagonal edge of the Designer Series Paper before attaching it to Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Beautiful You stamp set onto the lower right hand corner of the Whisper White card using Lovely Lipstick ink.  The whole panel is attached to scored and folded Lovely Lipstick card.  I stamped the image from the Beautiful You stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut it out using one of the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  I stamped the same image onto the reverse side of the All My Love Designer Series paper and cut out the dress and the hat. Before attaching the Designer Series Paper pieces to the stamped image I coloured where necessary using the Ivory Stampin’ Blend.  The image panel is attached to Lovely Lipstick card cut using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.  The whole panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I used the Well Written Framelits Dies to cut “happy” and “birthday” from Lovely Lipstick card.  I cut “birthday” once more and trimmed out the “th”.  The numbers are cut from the same card using some old Sizzix dies I had stashed away.  The words and numbers are attached to Whisper White card.

I love how this card turned out.  Stylish but relatively simple.  Paper piecing the stamped image takes it to a new level as well, don’t you think?

Bye for now,

Kris
