Female Birthday Card

Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for a good friend and neighbour,
who celebrated her birthday this week.

After cutting the trellis die on a separate piece of card, I glued a small piece
of patterned paper directly onto the card base to show behind the trellis.
After scoring the card and stamping the sentiment, I then used pieces of 3D foam strip
to raise the card above the patterned paper, and to allow the foliage and flowers to be added.

The products I have used are:-
Trellis -  unbranded die from eBay
Spellbinders Die D-Lites - Sprigs
Tonic Studios Punch - Small Daisy
Sentiment Stamp - free with Craft Magazine
