Hello crafty friends, I am back again! Today I am sharing this pretty birthday card I made for someone special.
I created all of the elements as SVG cut files and they are exclusively in the Pazzles Craft Room.
I started with cutting out the flower, leaf and wreath elements in white cardstock. I inked the edged of the flowers with my light pink ink. I then layered and staggered the pieces. I then turned to the leaves and inked them lightly with my pear ink. I wanted the elements to have just a touch of color.
I cut the wreath out two times and then layered them so the element would be just a bit stronger.
For the patterned paper I used some pretty paper from the DCWV Luxury Stack. For the pretty ornate frame element, I cut it out of pink cardstock and the bottom layer in white cardstock. I used some foam tape to give that layer a little extra dimension.
I then turned to my Pazzles Pen tool. I used my pink glitter gel pen and designed the diamond pattern on the top mat. Instead of “cutting” the pattern, I used my pen tool and “drew” the pattern. This made the stitch look I was after perfect. I wanted a very subtle pattern and having my Pazzles machine create it for me was the perfect alternative. I then used a font on my computer and my pen tool one more time to draw out my sentiment. While it wasn’t a single line font, I liked the look I achieved.
I did the same thing for the larger pink mat. I just created a smaller mat and used the stitch line. This made the stitching look consistent which is hard for me to do “freehand”.
Lastly I added a bow and some pearl accents and then assembled it all. I love the way it turned out.
Here is one last look at the completed card. It is a 5.5 x 5.5 sized card. I think the recipient is going to love it. I sure hope she does!
