IBS Celebrate Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday!

Today I am posting on the Inspired by Stamping Blog.  I have a fancy birthday card to share:

My card base was layered with Vintage Floral Paper.  Dies aren’t just for sentiments and images--I used the Fancy Label Dies 1 to cut the top layered pieces and put half of a doily under them. 

The Celebrate sentiment is from the Just Because stamp set and the pretty frame is from the Fancy Labels 2 stamp set.  After die cutting the sentiment with the middle die from the Fancy Label Dies 2 set, I sponged pink ink before removing the die.  That gives a nice, soft glow. 

The Birthday Wishes ticket was cut with the Vintage Tickets Silhouette cut file and then stamped with the Birthday Wishes ticket from the Vintage Tickets stamp set.  A bit of baker’s twine and a small flower finished it off.

Let's not forget the inside:

The strip across the top is what was cut off from the paper for the front of the card.

I hope today’s card inspired you to use your dies in different ways.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see what Kendra is sharing along with me today.  Don't forget to leave a comment.  Of course we enjoy your comments, but Joanna is also giving away Blog Candy this week to one lucky person.
