It’s time for another birthday on the Lovebug Creations Creative Team. This time we’re celebrating
and we’re ready to help her get the party started!
The beautiful ribbon on this card is from Lovebug Creations. It’s called Augusta, from the Family Ties Collection. This collection features yards of gorgeous Rumple Ribbon in all of my favorite vintage-inspired colors.
I added a vintage yellow-colored mother-of-pearl button to the center of the super cute bow.
The flowers are fussy-cut, using two different sizes and they’ve been popped out using foam pop dots.
I have a little thing for vellum, so there’s a piece of vellum on here to give a little visual separation between the background and the die cut hexagon shapes.
I outlined each of the hexagon shapes with my white, Signo Uniball pen.
The tag has been stamped with a Happy Birthday Sentiment and dusted with a rust colored embossing powder. A couple sets of gold brown toned crystals gives the tag just a little bit of bling.
The edges of the card and flowers have been lightly rubbed with a brown Copic marker to give the card a bit of a vintage feel.
I’m so excited to tell you that I used a brand new die from Tim Holtz’ Alterations Frameworks line. This Sizzix die is so new, I just brought it home Monday from the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) convention in Anaheim, CA, where I won it and one of my BFF’s stood in line to pick it up for me (Thank you, Julie! I owe you!) The name is “Honeycomb” and it’s pretty versatile, allowing you to cut out different sheets of paper from the same collection and then mixing and matching the hexagon shapes.
Happy Birthday, Dorcas! I wish you a wonderfully creative day and I hope your family spoils you!
Thank you so much for stopping by and please leave a birthday wish for our special Creative Team friend, Dorcas!
