Happy Birthday To You

Evening all. As it's the start of a new month it's a busy time her on the blog and today sees the start of a new challenge from HLS Birthday where our theme is always:-


After a couple of kids birthday cards for my DT inspiration, I 've gone for a more feminine card that I made for the wonderful Loll, Stamping with Loll, for her birthday back in June.

This card uses a stencil from Altenew called Greenwood Flowers, no idea why as they remind me of anemones. A few of the stencils from Altenew have matching EFs but as far as I know this doesn't so I decided to make my own . I traced the outline of the blooms and leaves and cut them out three times from scrap card. I then layered them up and adhered them to a piece of copy paper before running it through my Big Shot with a piece of white card. The flowers and leaves were then stencilled over the raised areas, finally cutting the panel with a stitched rectangle die and stamped the Uniko sentiment.
Rather than put it square on my base card, I angled it and to ensure the embossed areas didn't collapse in the post, used foam tape behind those areas. A few PPP sequins complete.

So why not join us this month with your birthday creations, but if you need more inspiration be sure to check out the rest of the DT here.
