Birthday Fun

Hi everyone! Today I have a little card to share that I made last weekend when I was playing around with new toys.  My Pennant Nestabilities finally arrived, and I couldn't wait to break out the Vintage Banners set from Waltzingmouse.

I stamped the big striped pennant twice in Cherry Cobbler, then once in Bermuda Bay.  Next I cut one of the red stamped images with the Pennants die, then a cherry cobbler mat with the Lacey Pennants.  I didn't like the way the Pennants and Lacey Pennants Nestabilities layered together, so I hand cut the Pennant along the emboss line to nest inside the lacey pennant.

I cut out the scrolly section of the bermuda bay Vintage Banner and layered it over the cherry one, adding some rhinestones.  For the side tabs, I simply cut the stamped vintage banners with the smaller Pennants die and added them to the sides for a little interest.

To dress things up, I stamped the butterfly from Chicks Rule, cut out with the Flutterby Die, then colored with Copic markers and added some diamond glaze, glitter and rhinestones.  The sentiment is from the Wordy Birds set, and is stamped and layered onto Charming Oval die cuts.

And since it was such a festive card, I decided to do a festive ribbon treatment to go along.  I layered some loops of bermuda bay polka dot ribbon, then glued down a round sparkling slider from Pizzazz Aplenty and topped with a bow.  The base of the card is a little narrower than usual and the finished card (embossed with the 5x7 dots Cuttlebug folder) is 3.5 x 5.5".
