Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday and August 1st! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #124 – Shape Shift! We’d love to see your shaped project! We’re being sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter so come on over and play for your chance to win a prize! I used the amazing Vintage Tea Cups image and paper for my birthday card, as well as a pretty shaped card die set.


I printed the background paper and die cut the layer to go on top of a cardstock layer, and then adhered the panel to the front of the card base. I printed the tea cups several times, fussy cut two and layered them together, reserving the last two for the butterfly, rose and leaf (fussy-cut partial images layered on whole images for dimension). I used some wire for the butterfly antennae. I embellished the cups with sparkle overlay marker and white Gelly Roll pen to give them a slightly more vintage-y look. I printed digital alphabet letters on vellum for the sentiment and adhered the strip across the bottom.


I printed the inside sentiment on the computer and die cut the layer to go on top of a cardstock layer, just as I did on the front, and then adhered the panel to the inside of the shaped card base.


And one more look from an angle so you can see the dimension. This really is a beautiful card in real life. The colors are so vibrant – love The Paper Shelter images and papers!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
