It’s time for another FBP Blog Hop! Today’s theme is Birthday Girl, and I chose the Dahlia Days Bundle for my project.
Our theme today is Birthday Girl, and what could be more girly than pink and lace? I know a lot of girls, big and little, who would love to receive a card like this! Don’t you?
Dahlia Days Bundle
The Dahlia Days Bundle is such a beautiful set of stamps and dies. Not only are there dies to cut out your stamped images but look at that large lovely lacy die! That’s what I’ve used for the front of my card.
Impressive but easy
This is a pretty impressive card, but it’s much easier than it looks. I started with a Polished Pink card base. I didn’t think I liked Polished Pink, but when I pulled it out of my bin, I found I really LOVE it!
Next, I cut two pieces of white slightly smaller than my card front. One was used to cut out the lace. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut a Frame from the other piece. Don’t throw that inside rectangle away. That’s what I used for all the additional pieces!
First, I flipped the white frame over and placed Tear N Tape next to the inside border on all four sides of the frame. Second, I placed the lace die cut face down on top of the Tear N Tape and sealed it to the frame. Third, I trimmed off any pieces that were too close to the outer edge.
Next, I placed a piece of Polished Pink ribbon across the front and stuck it to the excess tape on the back. If you need to add more adhesive for the ribbon, that’s ok, but I didn’t need it.
Finally, I added the frame with lace and ribbon to the card front. I still didn’t need any more adhesive. The Tear N Tape behind the lace worked fine for me. But, if you need more adhesive, that’s ok, too.
I used the rectangle cut from our white frame for all my stamped pieces. First, I stamped the frame with foliage with Soft Succulent Ink and the Happy Birthday from Pansy Patch with Evening Evergreen inside the stamped frame. Next, I stamped the flowers with Polished Pink Ink in the extra space.
I cut all these pieces with the coordinating dies and glued the three small flowers to the stamped frame. I used a Dimensional to add the largest flower.
Finally, I added 2021-2022 In Color Jewels to give it a little sparkle.
