Happy Birthday with Lydia


Good morning (or afternoon) all! It's Lydia here with you today and I have a very soft and airy card to share with you today.


I started with a card base slightly smaller than normal (4 x 5 1/4") so that Cover Model:The Leaf Effect Cutaway would cover the card without the outside edge. To do this I stuck the white card die-cut Cover Model over my card card and then cut the edges off so it was nice and flush.


I stamped and white heat embossed some flowers from In Bloom: Addie's Garden and then die cut these using the coordinating die set, In Bloom: Addie's Garden Cutaways. Once I had these all die cut I gently blended in some ink, from the top on the flowers and around the edges for the leaves. I do love the soft effect that ink blending gives and it's such a quick and easy way to colour in images.


The sentiment is from Winter Woodland and I stamped this onto a strip of white card. I attached this to my Cover Model covered card base and then arranged my flowers to frame the sentiment.

That's it from me today, I really hope you like my card! 

Hugs, Lydia x
