Birdie Birthday

Hello. Happy Little Stampers anything goes birthday challenge has returned after a little break, and the first challenge for this year is now live.

Here is my card:

I started by taking a white panel and used the Altenew ‘Scalloped Frame 3D embossing folder’. The folder is the full circle, but I only wanted half of it on my card. It came as part of an online class with them – another class I haven’t fully completed.

I then took some Spellbinders dies and die cut, layered, re-arranged, die cut more, re-arranged again – you know it can get sometimes – until I was happy with the layout.

I used a combination of 3D foam and glue to adhere and layer the elements, and added a debossed sentiment from Spellbinders. I find I am loving these debossed sentiments. Sometimes my die-cutting machine has a little too much pressure and the words actually cut through the piece of card – no worries – either cut another, or layer a piece behind. Sorted…..

A Some of these dies came from the Spellbinders Advent calendar – and I will certainly be signing up for the next one…….

I hope you can come and join us with your ‘anything goes birthday’ creations. xx

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Crafty Gals Corner – add a heart (gold hearts in semi-circle die cut)

Seize The Birthday – anything goes birthday (option of red and white and one other colour not taken)

CYHTP – embossing folder – option of things with wings taken

Creative Fingers – anything goes

Crafters Café – cute

  2. My first thought was charming! It is a pretty card and that little bird is adorable. I also like the debossed sentiment. It all looks great.
