Happy Birthday Coneflower – by Holly McMillen

(Current US Shipping Special – $3.95 – $5.95)

Good Monday morning. As usual, Holly starts our week off, this time with a cheery and fun birthday card featuring one of our florals and a beautiful background with built up layering and dimension, but so easily done. Take a look:

How totally fun and cheerful is this for a happy birthday greeting!

The floral is from our  Thank You for Caring Coneflower.

A simple sentiment from our Typewritten Year Round Greetings works perfectly here.

The fun dotted paper is from Bright Blooms by Craft Consortium.

The beautiful background cutout is cut with the Mixed Media #1 die set by Tim Holtz.

Note that Holly paper pieced the petal portion of the floral using the same fun dotted paper as the background, while she Copic colored the rest of the floral.

I love how she elevated the white die cut sheet above the dotted sheet, allowing her to tuck the floral stem and the sentiment into the lacy cutout.

Thank you so much, Holly, for this lovely birthday card.

The lucky birthday girl is sure to be thrilled to pieces!

What a fun die set to add some texture and interest to your projects!

With the Mixed Media Dies you are using the negative space left over, not the positive which is cut out, as there are no cutting blades along the perimeter of these dies.
