An Awesome Birthday with Tracey

by Tracey M

Hi there, it’s Tracey back again today with another fun birthday card featuring the Half Striped Cover die.

I cut a piece of heavyweight white cardstock with the Half Striped Cover Die. I used the Studio Katia blending brushes and then I ink blended each of the diagonal strips that fell from the cut using Distress Oxide inks in rainbow order. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Twited Citron, Peacock Feather, Wilted Violet and Chipped Saphire. After I blended the ink I tapped some clean water on to the strips and picked some of the colour up with paper towel.

I glued the Half Striped Cover Die to a white top folding card base with Studio Katia liquid glue. The I inlaid each of my coloured strips into the die cut also with liquid glue.

The sentiment from Birthday Greetings (one of my absolute favourite sets) was stamped directly to the card base with black ink.

To finish the card I glued some sparkly crystals around the sentiment. I used Ocean Wave Crystals , Peridot Crystals and Cupid’s Kiss Crystals .

A cheery clean and simple design Thanks so much for stopping in today.

I like the way the sparkly crystals mimic the water droplets on your diagonal strips! Pretty spring card Tracey!

Great card!! Have you glued the Crystals small side down? I thought they went the other way – but they are a lot shinier your way.
