Framed Birthday

November 22, 2022

Today I am sharing a card I made for a friend who celebrated her birthday at the beginning of October. I followed some instructions you can find on Lyn Dunn’s blog to create this card. She also has a video and a free downloadable tutorial. I cut my card base from Evening Evergreen card and embossed the small section at the front using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.

I cut the second card base from Smoky Slate card and added an Evening Evergreen panel to the front before attaching it inside the base. I embossed a piece of Basic White card using the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder and attached it to the Evening Evergreen panel. I attached a length of Gold Simply Elegant Trim to the card front using a dimensional.

I cut two floral images from the Fitting Florets 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper and attached them over the Gold Simply Elegant Trim using dimensionals. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set onto Basic White card using Evening Evergreen ink. I cut out the greeting using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies.

The greeting is attached to an Evening Evergreen rectangle cut using the same dies. I attached the greeting to the embossed panel on the card base using dimensionals along the lower edge only. To decorate the inside of the card, I attached another flower I cut from the Fitting Florets Designer Series Paper to the lower left hand corner of Basic White card. I love how this turned out. I have tried to create this type of card before but have not succeeded, so I am very grateful to Lynn for her instructions. I’d love to know what you think.

Bye for now,
