Make unique handmade die cut cards with decorative masks and dies.
I used the Flower Market Die to cut out the top layer white cardstock piece. Easy yet intricate. You can save a lot of the cutouts for other projects if you want… flowers, petals, leaves, stars, and more.
I used a few Blending Brushes to apply a trio of soft colors across the white top cardstock piece. The brushes work beautifully to apply and blend the colors smoothly.
It was easy to attach the intricate die cut layer to the card base using one of my precision applicators. I just squeezed some of my Multipurpose Liquid Glue into it and then store the applicator in one of my glue holders that I use to keep the glue ready for use. This applicator keeps the glue near the tip and makes it easy to apply the adhesive in small enough lines and dots along the back to affix it to the card front. No more glue oozing out the edges where you don't want it to be. I love these applicators!
The Happy Birthday came from a sneak peek at an upcoming stamp set, Special Moments. It's a set of 21 sentiment stamps that you'll be able to pick up FOR FREE during Sale-A-Bration beginning in January. Stay tuned!
I used my Blending Brushes again to apply the same colors across the greeting piece to blend in with the die cut layer.
Finally, I added a little sparkle with some In-Color Jewels.
