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.
