This is the second version in pink of the stitched oval and topper made using the dies from the Joy Crafts Wedding Collection 6002/1011 set and this one was for a friend's grandaughter.
The patterned papers for this card were printed from the Cuddly Buddly download A Patchwork of Papers Pink and the Nitwit Collection Thimbles and Threads. Shades of pink card were used to matt and layer behind the patterned papers, the embroidered frame and topper.
Pink grosgrain ribbon, self adhesive pearls and holographic butterfly stickers were added as embellishments. Before being added to the card the butterflies were attached to acetate, cut out and had their wings folded back to give a 3D effect. This was one of the first techniques I picked up from watching Dawn Bibby on her QVC crafting shows.
The Happy Birthday sentiment was die cut from pink and silver mirricard using a set of Britannia dies which were layered to create a shadow effect before being attached to the card.
