Happy Birthday | By Angel Rivera

Hi all!  I’m here with a birthday card using the Close to the Heart stamp set and matching dies.  This is such a beautiful set, I can’t stop using it!

I created sort of a stencil by cutting some acetate using the two smaller butterfly dies.

I then chose several pink, red and orange inks to sponge the butterflies onto some white card stock.  I lightly inked the sponge then worked from the edges in.

I only worked around the edges, swiping in just enough to see the outline, but also keeping the inner-most part of the butterfly ink-free.

I used one of Birch Press Design Notecards for my card base.

I used a separate matching note card and cut out two strips for my sentiment.

I inked one word at a time and stamped them onto each strip.

I used the Genevieve Butterfly Layer A die to add a little extra embellishment near the sentiment.  And in case you’re wondering, the sentiments strips are covering ink boo-boo’s!  😉

Thank you for stopping by!
