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!
With this card, I am also joining the following challenges –
Thank you so much for stopping by! 🙂
