Seize the Birthday - Patterned Paper

Hello everyone! 

It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! The Toppings option for next fortnight is 


What a good chance to use up some of the papers in your stash which are waiting for being used!
I used a patterned paper pack. The papers are color coordinated. So it was easy to make two cards using them.   

I started die cutting birthday sentiment using Bold General Greeting Word Plate die from a patterned paper panel, from some purple fun foam and from a cardstock on which I adhered Gold Foil adhesive paper

To make the first card I mounted a striped panel flat on a cardbase, adhered die cut sentiment on it aligning with the help of gold negative die cut panel. I foam mounted the gold negative panel, which was cut with a Double Stitched Rectangle die, on it and snipped off the overhanging corners.

The sentiment is from Toned Squares set from The Ton. I heat embossed it in white on a strip of patterned paper and added onto the card. The small flowers and leaves were punched and glued on the golden panel. I finished off the card by adding some purple rhinestones on the flowers.

The negative die cut panel of the birthday sentiment on the first card was used for the second card. The second card came together very quickly.

I mounted the negative die cut panel on a cardbase and added golden sentiment, which was raised on the purple fun foam die cut sentiment. I adhered the small sentiment strip on the die cut sentiment and rounded two corners of the card.

It was fun to make some quick cards using pretty patterned papers and die cut sentiment!!!
Hope you will join us and play along!

So pretty. Love the pattern paper and the way you angled the gold rectangle die cut. Great way to make two cards using the negative cut on one. Have a great week.

You have inspired me to get out some patterned paper and make a couple of cards, TaeEun. I never think to cut the sentiment in a way to be able to use the negative but the gold with the pattern showing through is as gorgeous as it is the other way around.

Wow, great cards! The color combination is quite unusual but I really like it. And I'm totally in love with the floral paper. Usually, I'm not a huge fan of bold prints but this one is really pretty.
