Beauty Abounds Birthday Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a super quick and easy card that's stepped up just a little to share with you for a birthday that you may need a quick card for! I used the Beauty Abounds Dies to create the focal image on the card but more on that shortly. Here's a look at today's card.

Create the Window:

To create the opening in the front of the card I used the Blossoming Happiness Dies to cut the opening in the Basic White Cardstock layer. I used the Take Your Pick Tool with the Die Brush Attachment to remove all the little pieces of cardstock after die cutting. I then changed the tips and used pointed one to left up the pieces that where cut but were not intended to cut all the way.

I then cut a piece of the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper to fit behind the openings. I cut this just slightly bigger than the die cut panel. I attached the DSP to the back of the Basic White Cardstock panel with some Stampin' Seal+. I then wrapped some of the Black Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essential Combo Pack around the Basic White layer and tied it into a bow on the front. I added more Stampin' Seal+ and attached it to the Fresh Freesia Cardstock layer.

To finish off the card I added the card front to the card base made from Gorgeous Grape Cardstock with more Stampin' Seal+. I then added a few of the Gorgeous Grape glossy dots from the Glossy Dots Assortments to finish off the card completely. Thanks for dropping by today, I hope you have a wonderful day.
