Happy Birthday Gorgeous With Sweetly Stitched Dies

Happy Birthday Gorgeous With Sweetly Stitched Dies

Hello Friends,

Do you like to challenge yourself to use your Paper Craft Supplies in unexpected ways?  I do.  Starting September 5, 2018, the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog goes live.  That's less than a week away!  Because I am a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I was able to order from the Holiday Catalog early.  I fell in love with the darling Sweetly Stitched Dies on page 25.  Combined with the Nothing Sweeter Stamp set I will be able to make all sorts of Holiday Cards and tags.  I'll even be able to easily stretch them into Valentine's day.  But my challenge to myself was to see if the Sweetly Stitched dies could be used year around, because they are absolutely adorable!  Answer: Yes, they absolutely can be used year around.  For today's Card, focused on the present and  trim dies to make this adorable Birthday Card.  The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set joins together with the Sweetly Stitched Dies to make this whimsical Birthday Card.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stampin' Up!

The stitched rick rack and the stitched present charmed the socks off me.  They took an already playful card over the top.  Just look at the way the stitched rick rack makes the little yellow flowers look like they are dancing across the card!

My Color Combo for today's card is Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green and Melon Mambo.

And...the inside is almost as cute as the front of the card.

How to Make a Card

I used the hinged system of my Stamparatus to stamp Happy Birthday 3 times in a neat row.
