Happy Birthday Wishes

Today I am sharing a Birthday Celebration card.  

It has everything but the kitchen sink!  

I started with the Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Banners die.  I cut 4 of them in 2 different sizes in 4 different Designer Papers.  I then laid down a piece of thick colored twine, diagonally, to see where I wanted to place my banner and to find out how much twine I would need.  I then cut 2 holes on each side with my Crop-O-Dile, this made it easy to attach my twine to my card base, I just tied 2 bows, 1 on either side.  Adhered my pretty banners using Scor Tape.  I know this will hold them securely in place.   

I took some time to go through all of my dies, choosing ones that had small little images I could use to decorate my banners. 

These all seemed to work really well:

Memory Box Butterfly Exhibit*
Memory Box Homespun Heart*
Button, Rhinestones and Pearls.

* Butterfly Exhibit is no longer available
but there are so many other choices for butterflies you can find HERE

* Homespun Hearts is no longer available
but there are so many other choices for hearts you can find HERE.

I also used the Impression Obsession Wishes to complete my sentiment.  This was cut from White card stock and then I colored it with a Copic Marker to match my Happy Birthday which was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink from the Lots Of Lines set by Gina K Designs.  Once dry I coated it all over with Clear Embossing Powder and then heated it.  It is much sturdier and has a nice sheen to it now.

My advice to you is to try and think of different ways to use your dies.
