Today, I have a birthday card to share that uses a lot of different techniques, die cuts, embossing folder, digital image and Copic coloring. I started this card back in November when some friend came for a stamping weekend. We were trying out some new embossing folders and die cuts. The embossing folder is from Stampin' UP! Scattered Sequins, which was on clearance. The die cut Happy Birthday banner is from Spellbinders, also on clearance.
It is a fun die, although a lot of separate pieces and folding them over to string on the twine. I think it is a neat effect though. I glued the bottom half so the letter spacing was adjustable.
I added the image months later, closer to my grand-niece's birthday in March. I was going through my digital images and found this one from A Random Fan - Summer Scent. I hadn't used a digital image in awhile so I printed several different images and started coloring while watching TV.

Today, I have a birthday card using My Favorite Things "It's a Mice Time to Celebrate". I made a couple versions varying the color of the mice, present and cardstock.
This is a cute set, love the dancing mice, which were colored with Copic markers. I added some stitching as a border and some sequins to make it a party scene.

The layered die is a really old one from Clear Dollar Stamps - Designer Label set of 3. I'm not sure where or when I bought it, possibly a craft show over 10 years ago. I think it really dressed up this card with the layers and eyelets.

Today, I have a birthday card I created for my niece who turned 25 this month. I used a stamp set from Simon Says Stamp! - "Even more Spring Flowers" for her card this year. The sentiment is PaperTrey Ink "Signature Greetings II", retired set.
In November some friends came and we stamped and colored all weekend. They wanted to learn how to color with copic markers so these flowers were used as practice images. We stamped several of each image on a sheet of X-press It cardstock and used the Brother Scan N Cut to cut them all out.
