Birthday Makes


I have two birthday cards to share with you today which use an art deco style stencil.  I decided to emboss it in copper on blue cardstock.

I love the way that the copper pops against the rich blue!  I die cut a square panel out of the centre and popped the remaining frame up on foam tape.  I die cut the number from a copper coloured cardstock and combined it with a sentiment from Altenew.

I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge which is to use a stencil this week and at CASology where the cue card is copper.

I then made a card with the central panel which had been die cut from the card above:

I shall link this card up at Simon's Monday Challenge where we are using stencils and at Seize the Birthday where the twist is to use a number.

You can find this stencil in my Folksy store.

I hope you are enjoying a sunny weekend.....thanks for stopping by :)
