SIL Birthday card

 Good Morning all, i hope you are having a good week and plenty of sunshine to enjoy too.  

So today i am sharing the card i made for my sister in laws birthday. 



5x7" cardblank.  I first die cut a piece of patterned paper with stitched die, then using a smaller rectangle die cut a panel in the middle which i then mounted on foam and set back into the aperture.  Matted onto black cardstock, the black then also shows through the middle rectangle from the sides, just adding a bit of interest to a simple design. 

Various die cut flowers from black card stock, twine bow to finish. I stamped the sentiment and die cut with the same stitched rectangle dies and mounted on the edge, this is something i do quite alot, inspired many years ago by a top i was wearing and the brand name was a tag on the side seam.  


Close up, i just added a touch of pink starlight paint to the flower centres.  All flowers were kindly sent to me by a buddy so im not sure on the make of the dies but think they are all memory box. 


Items used:
Patterned Paper - My Minds Eye 'Jubilee'
Double stitched rectangle dies - My Favourite things
Sentiment stamp - stampin up 'curly cute'

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend and that the weather is perfect.  Emma
