I used 2 of the 3 adorable winged creatures in the set to flutter by with delightful wishes for a happy birthday.
I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on white card stock and colored them with Copic markers. I die cut the images with a circle die and layered them to a larger circle of green card stock. This is a great set of circle dies.
(If you don’t have a die cutting machine and are looking for a smaller, less expensive machine to get started, I highly recommend this Cuttlebug Machine. I’ve had mine for a long time and it’s the one I use over and over to die cut or emboss when I’m making cards or smaller paper projects. It doesn’t take up much room on my desk so it’s easy to keep handy. It comes in this pretty Blue or Rose color. If you decide to purchase a Cuttlebug Machine, I suggest you also purchase an Adapter C Plate. You will need that when using some of the dies to cut your shapes.)
But back to the card… I layered polka dot patterned paper to turquoise card stock and attached it to a white card. I stamped “Happy Birthday” with turquoise ink on white card stock and punched it with a label punch. (The stamp is from the Itty Bitty Greetings set from Stampin’ Up. The label punch, also from Stampin’ Up, is discontinued but here’s a similar one.) I attached the sentiment to the card and added a turquoise enamel dot. The stamped and colored image is attached to the card with foam tape.
I just love this Delightful Flutterbys set – by changing the sentiment, this card would be great for a thank you, thinking of you, or just a hello card!
Have a delightful day! 🙂
