A mix of dark pink makes a fun birthday that really pops!

I’m using the Spellbinders Be Bold Color Block Happy Birthday die on my card today, which is great for showcasing a mix of card together

I began by building the base for my card. I die cut the birthday die from white card and adhered it to a panel of printer paper, cut slightly smaller than 8.5 x 3.5”.

Next, I die cut the birthday die from a two pink sheets of card, along with a pearl white to set them off. To add some more dimension, I layered another white card die cut behind each letter, before adhering them to my base. By die cutting the birthday die from each colour, there’s plenty of letters to make more cards too.

I die cut the ‘happy word die a couple of times, with a pink layer offset behind the white pearl layer at the top. I adhered these with liquid glue to finish.
