A Birthday Card for another Great Niece!

We have a bit of a run on family birthdays in May and June, so today I am sharing 
the card I made for another one of my great nieces who celebrated her birthday yesterday.
I started by making the card base using the largest scalloped bunting 
die and cutting two pieces of white card. I glued them together at the top.
After die-cutting a piece of patterned paper with one of the straight bunting dies, 

I matted it onto the blue card and cut by hand.
Next, I die cut the number and letters with blue card and also craft foam 

sheets which I glued together to give a little bit of depth.

The products I have used are:-
Docrafts Xcut Large Nesting Dies - Bunting and Scalloped Bunting
Letters and Number Dies - Purchased from eBay
