A Birthday Card in Mauve

Hello, I do hope I find you well. It's been a while since I was able to get into my crafting space. After Christmas we were off to Dubai for work and then home for a short spell then off to the UK for about 11 days. I don't feel like I have stopped since and the jet-lag this time really got to me I was awake at silly hours and wanting to sleep when I needed to be awake. Still all good now having spent some crafty time in my crafty space.

I have a Birthday card to show you. It uses one of the new Sue Wilson dies from the New Zealand set - the background die which is really pretty. Here's the card and I'll explain more as I go.

I used American Crafts white card stock for my card base and some very old magenta Creative Memories light cardstock that's been in my stash forever.

I used the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms stamp which I stamped using a Versamark ink pad and white embossing powder that I heated.

Once done I used some Pan Pastels to colour the die and I added some prills into the centre using Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue to hold them there.

I used a paper shaping kit to mould the flower and then placed it onto a lacey backgroud cut out using the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Lace die. I added some Sue Wilson die cut maidenhair fern leaves as well.

I am really loving the green leaves. They are from The Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisies die - again white heat embossed and then coloured using Peeled Paint an Crushed Olive mini distress ink pads.

These two flowers I placed bottom right on my card.

The New Zealand background die is lovely to use. I cut out the centre on sticky backed double sided paper and then sprinkled ice snow on it, it looks lovely behind the centre panel of the die. The Happy Birthday sentiment is one I made on my computer and I had hanging around in my sentiments box.
And there you have it.

Here are the main ingredients that I used to make this card:

I hope you like the card
