Memory Box Chrysanthemum Happy Birthday card…

_MG_8108 copy

Happy Monday everyone! My Chrysanthemum Happy Birthday card features the new Chrysanthemum Outline die, Chrysanthemum Background die and Happy Birthday script dies.  I used the Dogwood Blossom Outline die and Dogwood Blossom die for the stems and leaves.

Happy Birthday is die cut from Licorice card-stock,  the flowers are cut from Bubblegum dots card-stock, the stems and leaves are cut from Key Lime Dots and the accent paper border is Key Lime Gingham.

How to get perfect placement for the happy and birthday words…
* after die cutting, keep the negative piece from the cut  (the part you would usually throw away)
* place it over your card where you want your word to be
* put adhesive on your word die cut
* place your word back in the negative piece, press it in place
* then slowly, carefully remove the negative piece so all that is left in place, is the word

In this photo you can see I die cut the florals in the white card base then cut them out of the colored card-stock too and inserted them in the cuts in the white card base.

A fun technique for using Memory Box dies…cutting, layering them with different colors for a little different look.  I did this on my Jasper Leaves card,  HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today! Happy stamping and die cutting!

  2. Another WOW card! You just have to stop posting such drop dead gorgeous cards with new dies! My “wish list” is starting to look like my daughter’s Xmas list the year we mistakenly gave her the Xmas catalog & told her to mark the things she wanted Santa to bring her! Wish I had kept it! There was not a single page in the toy section that didn’t have a check!

I love hearing from you! Thank YOU!
