Bunches of Birthday Wishes

Hello friends, I hope you have had a good day - it is Monday evening here Down Under and I have had a little time to play in The Studio.  My card today has a little vintage flavour - which is one of my favourites - what about you - what is your favourite style?

I have cut/embossed the patterned paper for the card front using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken.  I have o be honest and say this is one of my favourite dies and have to stop myself using it on every card!  It has been adhered to a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Adhesive Runner.

The digital image, by Laura Kirste Campbell has been coloured using Chameleon Pens, trimmed and had narrow gingham ribbon wound twice around it.  A brad has been added to the centre of the ribbons to secure them.  The image has been layered onto slightly larger rust card stock and popped up onto a pre-cut white frame using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner and layered into a pre-cut white frame using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: 3D Foam Squares.


The sentiment has been trimmed, sponged and popped up underneath the ribbon using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Want2Scrap Moss Green Pearls have been added to finish the card.
