Seize the Birthday #161 - Dots & Stripes

Hello everyone! 

Today is the first Seize the Birthday Thursday of March. The new Toppings option for the next fortnight is 

But as always you may enter any birthday themed card into our gallery!

I've made a CAS card with a bouquet of dotted and striped flowers :) !!! 

I started off by searching for some patterned papers in happy colors with dots and stripes from my stash. I then die cut the flowers and leaves using Layered Floral Elements Die set by Altenew from those patterned papers. I cut the base layers from some white cardstock and colored them using Copic markers.

I adhered the layers of the die cut elements and set them aside. To add more stripes I've made a small panel by adhering Rainbow Stripes washi tape by Altenew on some white cardstock.

I then assembled my card together. I adhered a panel of white linen cardstock by Ellen Hutson on a kraft cardbase and foam mounted the small striped panel on it. The sentiment from Message Me set by Clearly Besotted was stamped in black pigment ink on the white linen paper and clear heat embossed. I arranged my little bouquet on the striped panel and the card was finished! 

It would be great to see your creations in our gallery!

This is such a bright and pretty card TaeEun and the striped and spotted flowers and foliage as well as the background stripes look great together. x

Beautiful! Such a great idea to put the *topping* right into the flowers. I'm also in awe of your flower-arranging talent. ;)

Such a cheerful card. Whoever gets it in their mail will be smiling! Love those cute flowers, and the stripe paper is a sweet touCH!

This is such a departure to your usual cards, TaeEun, but I love the playfulness of those dotted and striped flowers.

Barbara said...

I love how you got the dots and stripes into your card without it being obvious! You are so creative and too this challenge to another level. I am learning from you.

Cathy said...

Gorgeous card, love the bouquet and how you've used the stripes and dots in the flowers, really pretty design. I'm going to have to search for those layered flower dies! Cathy x

Fabulous use of the papers for the dots and stripes. Very bright and cheerful card.

Totally awesome!! Love the use of pattern paper for the flowers themselves, instead of using them in the traditional backgrounds - that looks totally fun! Love it!!

JoAnn said...

Love how you used the dotted and striped paper for your pretty flower collage. The rainbow Washi tape is a great accent too. Very pretty card.

Nancy said...

This is such a unique and different style for you Tae Eun and you pulled it off perfectly! There was never a doubt you would! Well done as always! Such a fun card!
