A Big Day Birthday Card

This is a quick one for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with “Anything Goes” as its theme. In the past few months, I have tried hunting down this Crate Paper die from the Maggie Holmes Confetti collection as SSS was out of stock for quite some time. But I’m glad I finally got it! It cuts out the loveliest flower and leaf patterns and they make great stand-alone embellishments too.

When you cut the flower petals and leaves in different patterned papers and colors, they look particularly pretty. The “Happy Big Day” was stamped in Versamark and embossed with a white embossing powder on a small die-cut vellum tag. I like that it moves around as you shake it. The background was cut using MFT Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Polka Dots die on a peachy-coral shimmery cardstock.

Overall, the card took about an hour to put together because I had to try different compositions and little elements that will fit in. Paper selection took a bit of time too although the flower and leaves were cut with scrap paper. But I think the extra effort was worth it.
