Birthday Hugs
by Michelle Bala


Hello crafters! Michelle here, sharing a birthday card I created using some of the newest dies from the 2020 Garden Party Release.  The Tall Birthday Candles are amazing and so much fun to play with! Think of the possibilities...mixing colors and pattern papers! For my candles, I used the Delicate Pastel Glitter Paper Pad and inked up some cardstock with distress oxide inks. I used shades squeezed lemonade, picked raspberry, cracked pistachio and dried marigold.  


These are the supplies used. All links will be at the bottom of the post.


I inked up my background card base with squeezed lemonade distress oxide ink than added some white paint splatters.  I die cut the Clementine Border two times and adhered them to the card base.  Next, I die cut Birthday Cursive Script Die three times and adhered them together, layered. Die cutting the birthday sentiment once is sufficient, but I used a cardstock that was not too sturdy so I chose to layer it a few times.  I embossed the 'hugs' sentiment from the stamp set Sunflower Wreath Clear Stamp. 

The final step was assembling the card. Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoy your weekend!!!
