Today I have for you the birthday card I made for my Mum this year (her birthday is in May so I am safe to show it. I cut a frame using Sue Wilson’s Double pierced ovals and some coconut white card, then I cut a piece of wisteria card using the next size down of the ovals. I then cut out 2 of the inner die from the Stitched Lattice Frames, 1 in coconut white and 1 in wisteria. I glued these together so they were offset from each other and then onto the wisteria oval.
Using some foam pads I mounted the coconut white frame over the wisteria oval and then the whole thing was stuck onto a piece of embossed cardstock coloured with colour cloud ink. The New Zealand Hamilton die provided the center cut in wisteria and mounted onto coconut white. I used the metalic gilding polish to “ink up” one of the petite lavish sentiment stamps.
Petaloo flowers and Creative Expressions pearl corners finished off the card.
Sometimes simple works really well and thats what happened with this card. I simply cut Sue Wilson’s Australian Collection Background die from a piece of paper from her paper pad. Next I cut the New Zealand Collection Hamilton die from some white card.
I used the Petite Lavish Sentiments – Clear Stamp Set in the middle with some distress ink and mounted the whole thing onto a white card blank, job done!
