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
