Happy Birthday Ann

For this birthday card I wanted to add some visual interest to a simple image. I decided to use a flower panel die that came from China. The thing about China dies is that you don’t know who the manufacturer is, but I really like the die. First I die cut a rectangle using a stitched rectangle and then used the panel die.

I printed the image with a laser printer and colored it with Copic Markers and then die cut it with the Silhouette PIXScan Mat. It fit perfectly to the right of the die cut. Blue cardstock was added to the back of the die cut and then

3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and the panel was adhered to the front of a top folding cardbase.
