Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!! Welcome to the September Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog Hop! This month, our theme is Birthday/Birth Day, and I've used the following sketch designed by our very own Sankari!
I decided to go a bit more elegant with my card this month...I usually go with a more cutesy vibe. I started with the gorgeous Discover Your Wings set from Taylored Expressions, and stamped the flowers in Versamark and embossed them with Black Embossing Powder onto a piece of patterned paper. All of the patterned paper on my card is the gorgeous Blush from My Minds Eye Lost and Found 2. Love.
For the circle element, I cut a circle of a different Blush pattern with Circle Nestabilities and layered it with black cardstock cut with Scallop Circle Nestabilities. I die cut a butterfly with the Butterflies Dies and added Latte Pearls in the center.
For the sentiment, I stamped the frame and "birthday Wishes", both from It's A Banner Day 1 onto more patterned paper and then cut it out with the Banner Day 1 Die. To create the layer, I placed the die unto a piece of Black Cardstock, traced around it with a pencil and then cut it out. I LOVE the layered look.
For the two corner panels, I used the From The Heart Frame Die and cut the patterned paper. I added the layer of black the same way I mentioned above, and then added them to the corners. Three more larger Latte Pearls finish this one off, and I popped up all the elements with Foam Tape.
Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
