Tim Holtz Cutout Blossoms Birthday Card

Sara Emily Barker Mixed Media Birthday Card Tim Holtz Cutout Blossoms 1

Hello! I had to drop everything and make a card to celebrate Simon Says Stamp's 9th Birthday! Happy Birthday!

I used Distress Oxide inks to color the two background panels (Chipped Sapphire, Stormy Sky, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone) and stamped the top one with a Fragments stamps. A Crochet die cut underlines the birthday greeting--a Stampin' Up 'birthday' and Tim Holtz Sideorder 'wish' die cut. There are silk flowers from my stash topped with Funky Floral #3 die cut blossoms and a rare sequin. (I was inspired by all the sequins on the SSS DT makes.) And because it's a special birthday, I even got out my sewing machine and stitched around both panels.

The Cutout Blossoms die cut allows that pretty blue oxide background to peek through. The foliage is from the same Funky Florals set. It's rare to see such a short post from me, but it's filled with big birthday wishes for Simon Says Stamp! Hugs! Sara Emily

  3. This is an absolutely stunning card Sara, I love the colours, the beautiful die cuts and the wonderful design. Gorgeous! Hugs, Anne xx

  4. Lovely delicate colour palette for such a pretty card. I've seen those cutout blossoms in a couple of sales lately and I'm now cross with myself that I didn't take the plunge. I've pretty much fallen for that Crochet die too - it put in an appearance on my SSS birthday cards too!
