Cathy’s Birthday

Mix It Up Challenge Blog: MIUCB#48

Dies R Us Challenge DRU Challenge#166

A cousin birthday card and two challenges today. The Mix It Up Challenge Blog #48 is an Anything Goes + No Stamping challenge and the Dies R Us Challenge #166 Anything Goes + using any brand of die sold in the store.

I decided to go with a Hero Arts Flower Garden Fancy Die and Sizzix Happy Birthday To You Die (Sizzix is sold in DRU). After cutting the flower garden die, I colored it in the a variety of markers and decided on the larger word die to cover up the dark green leaves in the center. Hard to see but I also lightly sponged SSS Square Dance Stencil on the layering cardstock. The word die was cut in green and blue because I couldn’t decide which color I liked better so I stacked them and ended up with the blue.

I kind of like how this one turned out.

Thanks for stopping in and Stay Safe everyone.

Happy Easter!

  1. Beautiful card! Love the floral background die you created. The Happy Birthday is fantastic. Love it!

    1. Thanks, Golda, I am always a little anxious about coloring with markers but was hoping for a soft look.

  2. Beautiful! The blue layer under the green for your greeting looks like a shadow and makes it stand out nicely on your colorful background cover die.
