Birthday Wishes

Hello there and happy summer! Today I have another card to share using some Simon Says Stamp Exclusives. I have CASE'd one of my previous cards which you can see here. I liked having the panel of vellum cut out from the card base but this time I decided to make it as a layer.

I first took a piece of Bazzill Vellum and cut it using the SSS Hexagon Border die and added two panels of cardstock either side of it to make a panel to go on to the card base. This was added to the card base with foam tape. I took the SSS Happy Birthday Die and cut just the 'birthday' part from SSS Lavender CS twice and layered them together. I stamped the 'wishes' sentiment from the SSS Christmas stamp set in black ink and added the 'birthday' above it.
I have then finished off by adding clear Wink of Stella on the 'birthday' and scattered some Hero Arts Smooth Gems around the sentiment. A very CAS card but I love the white on white with the vellum and the added pop of lavender.

Thanks so much for visiting me today. The sun is shining here in London. I have to say, I know I shouldn't complain but I don't do heat very well. I love to see the sun but could do with a nice swimming pool in my back garden to keep me cool! That would be nice! :) Have a lovely day!


  1. Great card Michelle, and what a clever and fuss free way to use vellum - so clever! Jo x

  2. I know what you mean about the swimming pool Michelle... Bliss! Your card is chic and stunning... Love it. I may have to case it. Xx

  3. Hi Michelle, great card, I really like the white on white too! I'm also with you on the heat- love the Sun but also love air conditioning- I burn super easy! Hope you're feeling well again.
