I have an adorable granddaughter who is a September girl like me! She’s is in high school now and is too grown-up to want kiddie cards but still likes interactive cards.
Here’s how I made this card:
I used a now retired die set from Karen Burniston when she was still with Elizabeth Craft Designs called 916 – Spiral Circle Pull Card. It comes with a die that creates a spiral that extends when the card is opened. As most of Karen’s interactive dies sets, this one could be for any theme. This die set looked as if it was made for this month’s sketch to me:
The basket and all the flowers were made with this set from Joset for Elizabeth Craft Designs called: 1460 – Spring Basket
Let’s just say I cut a lot of flowers. I used pink, yellow and white cardstock and cut each flower with two layers of petals. The flower center circle was cut with an olive green cardstock. The bow from this set was cut with the same cardstock from Elizabeth Craft Designs called: Thinking About Grand Canyon that I used for the pull card. I cut the basket from white cardstock and colored it with PanPastels.
The leafy branches was with Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1033 – Leafy Branch I cut about 6 branches and cut into pieces that worked for the basket of flowers.
The frog was made with die set also expired from Karen Burniston called 909 – Hoppy the Frog:
I cut two little circles out of white cardstock using Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1172 – Dotted Scallop Circles I cut them using the 3rd to the smallest die in this set for under the frog and for the sentiment when you open the card. I stamped the sentiment “Enjoy your day” from a retired Karen Burniston little stamp set called Just a Note on one of the circles for the inside sentiment.
The outside sentiment “Happy Birthday” is from this die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs: 783 – Happy Birthday
Thank you for taking a look and I hope you’ll join us this week and make your version of this sketch.
