Birthday Rose

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. As challenge hostess for the month, I continue to issue the challenges.

Die Cuts Only - create a card that is created using dies only, no stamps. If you must, you can use a stamp for the sentiment, but bonus points if you use dies.

Over the past few months I have really been enjoying creating cards using Creative Expressions Edger dies ... I got a few late last year and recently I added a few more to my collection. For my card today I decided to use the Specimen Rose Edger die. This die is a lot larger than most of the others I have used today, that it is best suited for a 5 inch x 7 inch sized card.

I cut a panel of patterned paper using the Craft Consortium patterned paper. I layered this paper to a panel of white cardstock for extra strength and then used the rose to die cut the panel. I spattered a little gold paint to the left side of the die cut panel and let it dry. Next I die cut another rose from green cardstock. I added foam adhesive tape to the back of the pink rose panel and then added the green leaves and stems to my panel. 

I used an bossing folder from Whimsy Stamps to add texture to a piece of cardstock that would be the background of my card which I adhered to a 5 x 7 side folding card. I then adhered the pink panel to the card base.

I die cut a birthday sentiment using Yana's Layered Script Sentiments die set and added it to the lower left side of my card.

I foiled the "Happy" using a Spellbinders Glimmer sentiment set and then die cut the word into a rectangle. Yes this is a die cut only challenge, but the foil plates look more like dies then stamps and the word was die cut out.

To finish the card, I added a butterfly ... this isn't a stamp, but a foil plate again. This time I foiled the image using black foil.

For the inside of the card, I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set. I added a die cut sentiment from Simon Says Stamp to the pop up arm.

I added another of the foiled butterflies to the lower right hand corner of my card.
