Kennedy Grace Creations Happy Birthday Card


Here are the Kennedy Grace Creations challenge for the month of January. I selected the diagonal line: Die Cut, Rhinestones and Ribbon! The easy way for my creativity time during this season of the year, because I am making a birthday card for a close friend. I have so many friends birthdays coming up that I think I may continue to use this as a
jumping off point.
January's Challenge Tic Tac Toe

Other supplies I used are: Kennedy Grace Creations Beautiful Sweet Rose for the Happy Birthday sentiment; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink; MISTI stamping tool; Copic Markers: RV02, RV13, RV04, C1, C3, C5, YG11, YG13; Fiskars 12" trimmer and small scissors; Offray silver satin 5/8" ribbon; Glossy Accents; Scotch tape runner; Platinum 6 die cutting machineSpellbinders Annabelle's Trousseau Layering frame from the Chantilly Paper Lace CollectionSpellbinder's Tool 'n One; Pattern paper is Quick Quotes Picadilly Pink Collection QQP-P1200; Want2Scrap pearl embellishments; white and pink cardstock and Neenah 110# cardstock for use with the copic markers.
The Spellbinder's were purchased over Christmas and I just HAD to use them!!! Bought at Simon Says Stamp.

I cut the beautiful die set out in white cardstock and a hot pink cardstock for the frame of Annabelle's Trousseau die set. Then I cut a special piece out of Neenah 100# cardstock for the inner smaller frame again but discarded the white lattice framework and kept the center piece which was stamped with the flower. After coloring it with my copics, I assembled the entire card onto a premade 4.5" x 6.5" card base putting the Quick Quotes patterned paper down first.  When I was assembling the papers, I left room for the ribbon to come through in the middle and be tucked under. So at this point, I inserted that gray/silver satin ribbon under the card base on each side. I used the end of a small pair of scissors to tuck it in and used Glossy Accents to adhere ribbon and close card base. Then I added pearl rhinestones as extra embellishments around the outside frame. I could have gone further but decided to finish it with the "Happy Birthday" sentiment from Kennedy Grace Creations Sweet Rose stamp set. It is such a pretty flourished script font that I thought it would be perfect with the fancy frame.
