Partial Die Cutting - Happy Birthday Pretty Kitty !

I took inspiration from yet another brilliant Jennifer McGuire tutorial and dug out my Happy Birthday Thinlits Die for this unusual take on a Greetings Card.

I worked today, as I did for yesterday's project, with the beautiful new Subtles colour, Highland Heather.

I partially die cut the Happy Birthday sentiment, applied the DSP, then die cut the sentiment three more times, layering each one to give the sentiment rigidity which means the card stands up nice and straight without the words warping.

There is a detail which you may not pick up from the photo. Along the edge of the DSP I used my new Stitched Labels Framelits Dies to add a discreet but decorative line of faux stitching.

I am so pleased to be able to share that some Stampin' Blends are now available to order, although we have yet to wait for the new colours, which are still unavailable.  I used a selection of them for today's project to colour in my pretty little kitty cat.

I rather like the way the card stands on the Happy Birthday die cut sentiment.  I am going to have another little play with a different layout later and share how that goes too.

Well that's it from me today - hope you likey.

Thanks for looking. I hope to see you again.

Bye for now.

  1. I love the layout of this card project Linda, do you have any dimensions for this please? Also for the DSP on both areas of card stock as well or would it be easier to go to Jennifer McGuire and watch her video tutorial. If so, please could you let me know the name of the video tutorial and date so that I can find this easily thank you. :O)
