You Mean The World Birthday



The last card I posted was a Valentine. But, I wanted to use the same sketch and concept and made this one a Birthday card. I just love the Heartstrings Paper Pack. So, just showing how changing a piece of paper, dies cut and one stamp, you can change the total look of the same card.

I used a different piece of the Heartstrings Paper. Using the Chevron Border Punch, I punched the bottom left corner and lined it with Red Shimmer Trim. I then cut a doily with hearts from the Close to my Heart exclusive Cricut Cartridge, "Artiste"

I cut a smaller circle out of Cranberry Cardstock and ran it through the tiny dots embossing folder and sanded it to expose the fabulous white core of the CTMH cardstock.

I then cut a smaller circle using a spellbinders die and sponged the inside edge with lagoon ink before removing the paper from the die. 

I then stamped the Birthday Sentiment from the "You Mean The World To Me" Stamp set with Cranberry Ink and heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder to give it more dimension.

The swag spray was stamped with Lagoon ink and heat embossed also. The roses were stamped with cranberry and all was fussy cut. 

I assembled all pieces following the Cardabilities Sketch and added three Red Enamel Hearts to the upper right corner.
