This is the challenge offered to us on the Allsorts Challenge blog where there are some great inspiration ideas from the Design Team. I do love die cutting and most of my cards feature the technique one way and another - there were twelve different used dies on this one which I can show now as my friend will have seen her card by now. I cut the apricot layer (1 die); outer pierced frame (2); the plaque for the greeting (3); the leafy spray (1); the flowers (3) and the numbers (2). The area behind the frame was a piece of card coloured using Pixie Powders and then put through an embossing folder. The flowers were stamped onto some of the Pixie Powder card before being die cut.
The sentiment and the apricot flowers were actually punched so they don't count! Details are given below of the items used
Oops!! senior moment - just realised the picture was taken before I added the age numbers in bottom RH corner within the frame.
