Happy Birthday Die Meets Touches of Texture - Partial Die Cutting

I had a birthday card to make so I thought I would revisit the partial die cutting technique for this one.

I used my Happy Birthday die, and partially die cut the word "Happy" on a piece of Coastal Cabana card stock measuring 3.5 x 5 inches.  Before doing so, I had stamped and heat embossed the gorgeous flowers which are from my Touches of Texture two part stamp set. The example below, is what my partial die-cut layer looked like.

I used a ruler to draw a straight line across the bottom of the partially die-cut area and used a sharp craft knife to cut away the excess.

The two photos below illustrate this:-

Then I used the die again to cut out the Happy Birthday in Whisper White card stock.  I snipped away the word "Birthday" and then heat embossed in white embossing powder the remaining word "Happy".  I heat embossed it several times for a nice shiny enamelled finish.

I also used my Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set to stamp and heat emboss the word "Birthday" on a piece of black card stock and formed a banner with this which I adhered to the reverse of the heat embossed word die, before offsetting it and adhering to my layer of card.

Finally I added a few sequins and stamped a sentiment on the inside with a stamp from my Cake Soiree stamp set.

This is what the reverse looks like
I am really pleased with how it turned out.  Hope my birthday recipient likes it !

Thanks for looking and I hope you will pop back again.

Have a lovely day.
