I'm also sharing my DT card with the Anything Goes challenge at Seize the Birthday and the Birthday challenge at Addicted to Stamps.
To create my card, I used a really amazing layering stencil from Taylored Expressions that results in three separate mini-slimline cards and was super easy to use!
The stenciling starts on a 5.75" x 9.75" panel of cardstock, and after you apply each layer, you cut the panel at 3.25" and 6.25" to end up with three card fronts with different floral designs. I just think it's a brilliant design, especially if you need to make multiples. I ended up trimming this stenciled panel down in size so I could mat it on black before adhering to the card front which ended up being 6"x 3.5".
I chose this design so I could add the birthday greeting in the center. The Happy Birthday was already stamped and die cut, so that left die cutting the number 2, exclamation point and letter U from black cardstock three times to layer them up for dimension. Once everything was adhered to the card, I used a shimmer pen to add sparkle, then covered the 2U! with Glossy Accents.
Here's a look at the other panels, which I'm saving for future use.
Thanks for taking time to stop by, I appreciate it! Please be sure to use the link above to see all the beautiful cards by the other DT members and hopefully join us this month.
