One thing I love about Papermilldirect is not only the range of colours of card they stock, but some of the fun patterns too. For this card I used:
- Papermilldirect Star Patterned Pack
- Papermilldirect Pink Striped Card
- Papermilldirect Pastel Pink Plain Card
- Papermilldirect Persian Pink Pearl Card
- Papermilldirect White Card Blank
I prepared my card by creating a mat of the Pastel Pink and Persian Pink card onto the white card blank.
I then used a frame die to cut the same shape from the Pastel Pink and the Pink Star card. I wanted to switch the fame and the inner piece on these, so I needed the outside of one to go with the inside of the other. This left me with another spare which I can use on a future card.
I repeated this on the next size down frame die, and switched out the frames and colours I wanted to keep for this card.
In order to keep the frame attached to the inner piece when adhering to the card I use a small piece of tape on the back until I adhere the frames using glue or foam tape (dependent on its position on the card).
I made candles from the Pink Striped card and used a scrap of Curry Yellow card to draw and cut out some candle 'flames'.
I added my patterned frames to the card and added the candles to the top.
I used some of the Pastel Pink and Persian Pink to make a sentiment banner.
I added the sentiment banner and some gems and the card was done!
