There is always a reason

Hello Everyone,

It is Zsofi here with a simple birthday card which I created with the partial die cutting technique.

I started with stamping the girl from the Birthday kids stamp set on a 5.5 inch wide white cardstock. I stamped the word Celebrate next to it using 2 shades of pink inks for an ombre look. I also stamped another sentiment above it with black ink.

Then I drew the lines where I wanted to cut with a pencil and placed the coordinating die on the girl. I put the upper cutting plate edge along the pencil line, so it cut only the upper part of the image, until the pencil mark. I did the same on the bottom and then I used my trimmer to cut the straight edges.

I placed the cut piece on black cardstock and drew a mat using a ruler and the coordinating die. I fussy cut the mat and adhered it to the white panel. I used Copic markers to add colour and adhered it all onto a pretty plaid patterned paper from the Beach Babe paper pad.

As a finishing touch I added some glossy accents and white gel pen highlights. I finished it off with a bunch of gold glossy dots.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration and will check back soon for more!

See you,
