Birthday Wishes and Soft Colored Dreams by Chrissy Mac

CLOSE UP OF MUTED PEACH DOILY AND BIRTHDAY WISHES SENTIMENT
Greetings!  Chrissy Mac here with another custom card project using some awesome Cheery Lynn Designs die cuts.  One of my favorite cards to make are Birthday cards.  There is always a birthday to celebrate around the corner.  I'd like to say that I make all of my cards ahead of time so that I am ready to give that special someone a handmade card, but it just never seems to quite work out that way and so I end up making one that matches the gift wrap or gift bag on the present or that matches a theme I have decided upon.  This one was for a friend who wears a lot of spring colors and so this is very fitting to her personality and style.

I really like square formats and decided to make this card 6.5" x 6.5".  Besides the occasion or person providing my guiding inspiration, there is always an artistic element or sometimes a few of them that guide and inspire my creative process.  

BIRTHDAY WISHES AND SOFT COLORED DREAMS HANDMADE CARD
For this card...one word...DOILY!  Cheery Lynn has the most amazing assortment of doily style die templates and here I used the French Pastry Doily which is definitely one of my faves.  On the blue doily under the flowers I simply cut out the center and made a cut so that I could then fan fold it to give it some dimension and provide a nice background for the lovely dimensional Daisies made with the Cheery Lynn Designs Shasta Daisy die.

Have I told you how much I love paper flowers?  No?  Well then...I LOVE PAPER FLOWERS!  You just can't go wrong with handmade dimensional flowers.  Since I try to recycle or up-cycle on my crafty endeavors, for the center of the flowers I used some fake pearls from an old broken necklace.  Score!

Below is a list of the dies I used to build this project.  If you have any questions on how this was made, please leave me your questions.  Either way I would love to hear from you even if it is just to say hello.  Happy creating!
