A Birthday Card by Chris

All the papers for this card are from Graphic 45’s Little Darlings. Used my ATG to adhere the blue base. I then used the largest die from Spellbinders Blossom Four and edged it with Tattered Rose Distress Inks. To give the flower a bit of depth I ran it through my Big Shot in the Whimsy M Bossabilities embossing folder and glued it down. Then I made the Happy Birthday sentiment, first cutting the paper with my Cuttlebug Embossing Plus Fanciful Labels folder, then inking (again with Tattered Rose), and embossing the sentiment with WOW! Suzy West Pantry Collection—Blueberry. This label is raised up on Glue Dots Pop Up Dots. A bit of lace trims the bottom.

I fussy cut an image from two sheets of Graphic 45 Little Darlings. I used one as a base and the other cut out parts that would give the image some dimension, using ASI (Kool Tak) 3D Foam on a Roll. Her bow is embossed with WOW! Embossing Glitter—Angel Wings. (I just love this color and sparkle!). To finish the card off I took apart some old flowers and rebuilt them with a pearl in the center. Petals and pearl were glued with Glossy Accents. Two punched butterflies edged with Tattered Rose and a touch of Spica Gold on the bodies and the card is done.

    Thanks for sharing,

  4. Beautiful work! The WOW embossing really sets off the image, and the colors you used are great.

  5. Chris the card is so darling. The image you used is so darn sweet. And I love how you cut it out twice for detail effect. Matter of fact all the things you used for detail really gives your card such a pretty vintage flair to it. Just gorgeous! Hugs, Fran
