#887 – STB: Die cuts Only

PE: Outstanding at the Virginia’s Show and Share challenge!!

Virginia's Show and Share - Winner

Hello and welcome! We have a great new challenge starting today over at Seize the Birthday! The topping is something that I love, but don’t do much of. Suggested by our lovely team mate Cathy – “Diecuts Only‘. Of course, she has also added that you can use stamps when it comes to your sentiment. But if that still doesn’t please you, go ahead and create a birthday project using anything you want – the “Anything Goes” option is always there! 😀

So for my card, I did mostly use diecuts, but I chose to use a little bit of stamping for the sentiment. And here’s what I made –

I used dies from Neat & Tangled Flower Medallion Builder and Spellbinders Nordic Blooms dies, cut them out from normal cardstock, and colored them using Zig brush pen markers. I then adhered them on a white cardstock panel, which I then mounted on a grey cardbase.

For the sentiment, I used Altenew Simple Alpha to die cut several pieces of white and a single set of black cardstock, which I stacked together. When I went to adhere it on the card, I found that it was kinda getting lost over the other die cuts, so instead of adhering it directly, I first adhered it to vellum, which I fussy cut to form a sort of a shadow die cut piece. Then I adhered that to the card. The stamped sentiment comes from Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Carolina’s Florals. Once it was all done, I felt a lack of shimmer and shine..so..yes.. gemstones from Lucy’s cards were perfect for this!

And that completes my card! Hop over to the Seize the Birthday challenge blog for some more Birthday+Diecut inspiration from my wonderful team mates, and our new Surprise Party Guest, Angie Cimbalo!

With this card, I am also joining the following challenges –
