Seasonal Shapes Birthday Card

If you’ve followed my blog for a while you will know that I love Stampin’ Up! dies and use them on pretty much every card I make. So today I decided to challenge myself to make a card which was made purely from dies, no stamping at all. I’ve focused on the Stitched Seasons dies again as I just  love the frames you can make from them.

As a back ground to my card a did a bit of matting and layering which a piece of paper from the Garden Impressions 6×6 DSP stack, despite my love of florals I’m not a huge fan of these papers as they are a bit busy for my taste but I think they work okay here as a background.

The three patterned paper pieces measured 9.5cm x 4cm ( 3 11/16″ x 1 7/16″) and the matt in Melon Mambo measure 10cm x 4.5m ( 3 7/8 x 1 6/8″).

For my greeting I used the Happy Birthday Thinlit die which I adhered to my project using multipurpose adhesive sheets as this die is quite delicate and the adhesive turns it into a sticker, making it much easy to position. The flowers were made from two diecuts in Shaded Spruce and two in Petal Pink. With the pink ones I just chopped off the leaves and stuck them onto the Shaded spruce leaves. To finish the card I added some Petal Pink pearls from the Artisan Pearls to the centres of the flowers to cover over the small hole in their centres.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project, I now think I need to challenge myself to make a card not using any dies, which I think will be much harder.
