Spring Birthday

Hello, Fellow Crafters!

Today I made a spring birthday card using blues and yellows.

Starting with white cardstock, I used another white piece on top of that which was run through an EF. Next is a pattern cut with my Cricut machine from the Paper Lace cartridge. The sentiment is stamped and mounted with dimensional stickies; the flowers were snipped from a bunch bought at Michael's, and add a very pronounced 3-D effect; each flower center has a large rhinestone set in the middle for eye-catching sparkle. A yellow grosgrain bow is placed below the flowers. From the same Cricut cartridge I cut a two-layered butterfly (for more added dimension) and glittered the top layer for another punch of bling. It is also attached with a pop dot.

Here is the card:

Tools used to make the card:

  • Stampabilities Happy Birthday Stamp 01-CR1011
  • Cricut Paper Lace Cartridge
  • Silk Flowers from Craft Store
  • Darice Checkered EF
  • Glitter
  • Yellow-Orange Rhinestones

Romans 10:9-11

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
