ID: MC Feb16 - Wire Fence - ECD Hello, Neg Happy Birthday card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: February 21, 2016

There is a challenge to use the negative of a die cut...  which is what I used on the inside.

I also have been making quite a few red/pink/orangey flowers lately and wanted Yellow ones for a change...

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Hello") & ("Happy Birthday"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE & HERE). 

I'm also using part of a sentiment stamp & Design Element stamp  from Quietfire Design  

("We Cannot Tell... " 2 pce companion set); ("The Woods Would Be Very Silent..." 5pce set)


Scored and folded my cream toned card. Layered with dark blue edge to edge. 

Inked my embossing folder (Cuttlebug "Chicken Wire") with Distress "Tumbled Glass", embossed the design, removed from folder and hit high points with ""Hickory Smoke". Trimmed down, adhered a piece of blue/gold Sari ribbon on the corner, then layered on to card.

Die cut a bunch of the yellow flowers (Leanne Creative "Blossom") from Canson Ingres paper decorated with the 2 Dylusions Yellow sprays, tooled them and adhered together. Used a Spellbinders stamen die cut ("Bloom 3") which I had made eons ago from white cardstock, colored with yellow and drops of Viva "Dark Brown" pearl pen) on the tips. When assembled, added a glob of glue in the center and pressed in the Flower Soft . 

Die cut the foliage (Memory Box "Fresh Foliage") from heavy Soft Finish cardstock colored with Pan Pastels.

Die cut the "Hello from white cardstock, inked with a blue pad & embossed with "Pearl Lustre Sapphire" embossing powder.

As a final touch, eCut the little birdie from white cardstock, stamped with Distress "Broken China" and lightly colored with some Prisma colored pencils.

On the inside: Used a piece of my Color Burst decorated watercolor paper. Adhered a piece of Ken Oliver "Stick It" adhesive and ran through my machine. Trimmed down and adhered to the inside, piecing the little drop out pieces. Added lines of Viva "Holo Iridescent" glitter liner in the vertical downward strokes (see close up below).

Stamped the "my friend" using Versamark and embossed with Super Fine Detail white embossing powder.

As a final touch added the white lace ribbon using Sookwang tape.
