Birthday Rose

Today's card is so sparkly and full of glitter, that you might have to wear shades (especially if you're outside!).  This birthday card features three Die-Versions dies: Rose Whispers die (currently out of stock), "Happy" Sweet Wordlet, and "Birthday" Sweet Wordlet.  I love using Sweet Wordlets on my card fronts as they are the perfect size - not too big and not too small.  You can check out all of them here.

To create this card, I started out by die cutting the rose and my sentiment words from white cardstock and then colored all three pieces with Copic markers.  I also highlighted the leaves on the rose with Viva Inka Gold (Green Yellow).

A Lifestyles Craft die (Nesting Frames 7) was used to die cut some Sticker Paper.  First, I adhered the rose and the sentiment down, and then added some Rose Gold glitter by Sparkle N Sprinkle to the inside portion of the die cut for my petals.   The rest of the sticker paper was covered with Crystal glitter by PK Glitz.

I dry embossed the card front with a Tonic Studios embossing folder (Layered Leaves) and then rubbed more Viva Inka Gold on the raised surface and around the edges.

To finish the card, I added a strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape (double sided tape) to the top, covered it with more Rose Gold glitter and then tied a strip of ribbon on top.  The inside was left blank for a personal message.
