Lovely Birthday with Concord & 9th

P1070606

Hello there

I recently purchased Concord & 9th Detailed Blooms Die, which I just loved. So I decided to create a shaped card that used the die as the feature.

After cutting the die from some white card stock, I used it to draw around the front panel allowing a small border and fussy cut it.

I then started to build up the colour on the front panel using SAI Japanese Water colour pens (similar to Zig pens) in 2 shades of pink and some Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Dust – Rich Gold. Once I was happy with the intensity of colour, it was left to dry.

The die cut was also washed using the same colours.

The sentiment was gold heat embossed using Concord & 9th – Hello Lovely and Happy Day stamp sets.

The front panel was then adhered to the card front and the top was again fussy cut.

Finally the die cut was added to the front and some small gems finished the card.

I was really happy with the results.  I hope you like it too.

Thanks so much for stopping  by

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.

  1. This is so neat! And I admire your fussy cutting skills. As a matter of fact I just had to get a new eyeglass prescription because while I can still read fine, my fussy cutting skills were declining. Ha! Thank you so much for joining us at Where Creativity Meets C9!

  2. This is just lovely. The off-set die cut lends such an interesting element to your design. And you can’t go wrong with pink and gold! Thanks so much for joining us over at Where Creativity Meets C9!
