Moving Along with the Times - My Challenge

It's my turn to set the challenge at  Moving Along with the Times and I'm asking you to share your projects witIh the theme of Girls' Birthday any age up to 21.  It's my beautiful daughter's birthday this week and so it seemed like an appropriate theme.  She's 19 and so I needed it to be girly, but grown up too.  I've also made a matching tag.

I started by adding some texture lines by using my Stampin' Up! Simply Scored scoring tool to the base card of whisper white thick cut at 11" x 5.5" and scored on the landscape at 5.5".  I also die cut a square framing using the stitched shape framelits and layering squares both available from my Stampin' Up! online shop.  I cut the stitched shape first and then positioned a smaller layering square inside it to cut the aperture.  I've then fussy cut some of the beautiful pearlised flowers from a sheet of  Share What You Love specialty designer series paper and layered them onto the frame.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp the happy birthday which is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.  I positioned the stamp in the frame, before removing the frame and using the Stamparatus to make sure it stamped exactly where I wanted it before repositioning the frame which I adhered with mini dimensionals.  As you know gentle reader I love bling so I've added some rhinestones including a few left over retired black stones.  I stamped a frame with Old Olive ink from the same stamp set and added the 'gorgeous'.  I used the classic label punch to cut the frame shape and then just snipped off one end to add it to the card.

Top Tip
The tag was made in the same way. It is a large tag so to make the tag shape I just cut a triangle off one corner then laid it onto the other corner to cut along the edge of the triangle to make the sides the same.  It means you can make a tag any size.  Punches are fabulous, but this is perfect for larger tags.

Don't forget to come join us at MAWTT for the challenge we'd love to see your makes.
