Ultimate Baroque Collection - Have A Wonderful Birthday

Good Morning Everyone.

Another day closer to Christmas, so for those of you who have completed their cards I thought we would have a change and do a Birthday Card.

Today's card I created in Black & Cream. All the products I used can be found on Phill's Website -


This is what I used:-

Black Card Stock
Cream Card Stock
Sentimentally Yours Baroque Border Sentiment A5 Stamp Set
Sue Wilson Noble Dies - Ornate Pierced Rectangles
Sue Wilson Dies Laurel Leaves
Sue Wilson Dies Peony
Creative Expression Pearl Strips
Black Soot Distress Ink
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue

Using Black Card Stock I cut the shape of the card using the largest of the Pierced Rectangle Dies.

Then using the next 2 sizes down and Cream Card Stock I cut these out and attached to the main card (flat) using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.


Using Cream Card Stock and the smallest plain die I cut this out.

I then stamped across the centre using the Baroque Strip from the Border Sentiment Stamps and Black Soot Distress Ink.

Next I chose 'Have A Wonderful Birthday' from the Baroque Border Sentiments and stamped this again using Black Soot Distress Ink.
I attached to the card using pads to give dimension, then decorated the edges with Twinkles

Finishing Touches

I cut several flowers using The Complete Peony Dies and alternating with Black & Cream Card.

I then cut the Laurel Leaves using Cream Card, then while these were still in the die I used Black Soot Distress Ink to colour the leaves.

I then shaped these and attached to the card.
Finally I added Pearls around the edges of the Black Card and also the Cream layer, not forgetting the centre of each flower.

                                 Happy crafting

Ultimate Baroque Collection - To A Special Friend

Good Morning Everyone

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my previous post.

As promised I am going to post smaller cards, as many of you have requested, so here we go with today's card:- A very straightforward one.

All the products used to create this card can be found on Phill's Website -

I used:-
Plain White Card Stock
Sentimentally Yours Baroque Sentiment Stamps
Decadent Colour Cloud Blending Ink - Denim
Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels
Creative Expressions Pearl Strips
Noble Dies Ornate Pierced Design
Perfect Peony Complete Petals

I cut the card shape out using the largest of the Noble Dies.

Then using plain white card I cut the 2 largest dies out and edged using Denim Colour Cloud Blending Ink, then attached flat to card using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

Next I used the 2 middle sized dies and again cut out using plain white card, and once again edged in Denim Colour Cloud. I then attached to card using pads.


Using the smallest plain Die I cut this out using white card stock.

I then stamped the Sentiment using Denim Colour Cloud and again around the edges.

Then attached to the card using pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches

Using white card stock and the Peony Dies I cut several of these out, and while they were still in the die I used Denim Colour Cloud to blend the petals and leaves.

I then shaped the flowers and attached to card using Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

 I added Glitter Jewels to the edge of the main card and also to the flowers and leaves, before finally adding a small pearl to the centre of each flower.

                                Happy Crafting
