On this card I used one of my alcohol ink backgrounds from this session. I cut the decorative paper with the Memory Box Grand Happy Birthday die then mounted it on a piece of white card stock which was trimmed to leave a small border. This layer was then adhered to a pink card. I added 3 deep pink sequins in the top right hand corner held in place with bling Zots.
this session. I printed the greeting in a coordinating color then I die cut some leaves from it with Spellbinder Foliage thin dies.

This teal card features a piece of decorative paper as a background to the white frame. The frame was cut with the largest die from the My Favorite Things - DieNamics Stitched Frames set.

I added a bit of stamped stippling below the frame in case it is used with out a greeting. A greeting could be added if one chose.

I chose to make a more masculine looking card from decorative paper made with acrylic paint in various shades green and brown applied with a sponge over material to create texture such as a mesh bag. I chose an ivory greeting layer into which I cut the word with the Stampin Up Little Letters framelits. I cut this layer to highlight a generous frame of the decorative paper. This was then adhered to a brown card.
This decorative paper is acrylic paint with paste paper technique. I cut it down to leave a border of the blue card. I punched all 4 corner with a decorative corner punch. I cut a flower with the Cricut at and the Straight from the Nest cartridge from white card stock. I cut it at 4 inches. I adhered the flower on the card front in such a way to leave some room on the right hand bottom for a greeting if a person chooses.
I started with a turquoise card onto which I stamped a Stampin Up Itty Bitty background with Island Indigo. I cut the decorative paper with the SU Top Note die. I tied a piece of white seam binding around the bottom half and knotted in the front. I then created a focal element with silk green leaves, then a purple card stock flower cut with the SU Flower Fair framelits. I curled the ends forward. I added a large white silk flower, a medium silk flower then a white iridescence sequin which are all held in place with a tiny turquoise brad. I've included greeting which can be adhered below the ribbon should the person choose to.
