We always need birthday cards, and that’s the theme this time around at Cut it Up Challenge Blog. Coincidentally, today (February 24th) would have been my father’s 98th birthday!
Happy Birthday, Daddy! 🙂
This card is for a long-time friend of mine.
I was inspired by this card, but I prefer to use my Silhouette or Cricut rather than physical dies because they’re so much more versatile. (Besides, it’s fun to design in the Silhouette Design Studio software, as I’m sure you’re sick of hearing me say!!) So I went about trying to make something similar.
The flower I used to make the card front is the very center of the Blooming Mum file from My Scrap Chick. I just duplicated and spaced it until I liked the look. The focal image flower is from the Silhouette library, simply called “flower.”
It’s so pretty, isn’t it? I made two offsets and popped it up on some foam tape, tucked a ribbon underneath, and then added little Ki rhinestones to the center of each cutout flower. The sentiment is on the inside. It’s from my fall-to Happy Birthday stamp set, So Many Birthdays, from Jaded Blossom. I just love that set, because it simply says Happy Birthday in different fonts, enough to match the mood of any birthday card I make.I hope you link up your birthday card creation to Cut it Up.
