Happy Birthday Silhouette

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I hope you’re planning to do something fun this weekend! I have another ScrapbookingStore DT inspiration project to share that I created with the March 2023 Scrapbook Kit with Upgrades! This is another one that I shared on social media but wasn’t able to blog it until our internet was restored. I tell you… you sure don’t realize how much you depend on internet (every single day) until you don’t have it! I was able to do simple tasks using my phone but writing blog posts on my phone was not in the stars, lol! I know people who do just about everything on their phone on a daily basis and I just can’t… I’m happy if I can charge it every other day. Bahahaha! Okay, on to my project… I really like the upgrades in the March kit and I used primarily die cuts from the upgrades to create this pretty silhouette birthday card. The fact that the die cuts can easily be used in a ‘stand-alone’ fashion for many projects is a definite plus!

I cut a standard A2 size side-folding card base from CutCardStock Basis 110# Natural cardstock. Using a corner die in the JustRite Card Front Basics Dies, I die cut four ornamental corners for the card front from a pretty pink patterned paper in the kit. Using a Cottage Cutz Double-Stitched Ovals die, I cut an oval for the card front from CutCardStock Bright Gold Foil. I then created the focal element by adhering a die cut silhouette, butterfly and flagged sentiment from the upgrades. Using a ruler, I bent the butterfly in half, creating dimension on the wings, and then added brown twine to the sentiment flag.

I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis 80# Natural cardstock and embellished it with strips of CutCardStock Basis Soft Pink and Bright Gold Foil cardstock. I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Beautiful You stamp set in Memento Espresso Truffle ink and layered the panel on Basis Soft Pink cardstock.

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
