Delicate Doilies – The Happiest of Birthdays

For this card I took the My Favorite Things Mini Delicate Doilies and placed them randomly on the paper and embossed them. I had to do this a couple of time to cover the rectangle. At first I just added a strip of teal for the sentiment, but I didn’t like the way it looked, so I die cut one of the doilies, backed it with white, and added it to the right of the sentiment.

Products Used:

  • My Favorite Things Mini Delicate Doilies
  • Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday

This is the way the card looked before adding the small cutout doilie.

Masculine Woven Ribbons Happy Birthday

Woven Ribbons Birthday Wishes

I think this die from Frantic Stamper creates a background that looks like a beautiful quilt. I played around with this quite a bit. At first I didn’t like the hot pink and purple together until I finally changed the patterned paper sections. The flowers in that paper are so similar to Altenew’s Rose Flurries 3D dies that I decided to add a flower in the lower left corner.
