Special Birthday

It was recently my kid’s birthday, and one thing they have a true gift for is plants, so I had to incorporate foliage into their card somehow! I’ve seen a number of Diamond Point or Triple Point cards around lately, and decided to give it a go. I’m not a math-y person, and all the angles were a bit intimidating to me! I chose a pretty plant print paper, a simple black and white print, and a pretty green for my main colors – with black matting for a nice contrast. I carefully cut out all the pieces, holding my breath the whole time, and assembled the card base. Success!! I absolutely love how it looks 🙂 I went through my dies to find a sentiment that complimented the card design, and cut it out of silver mirror, and black card stock. I inlaid the lettering in the silver banners with some black off cuts, so it popped. For a finishing touch, I took some 1mm rhinestones, got my glasses on, and carefully placed them on the black birthday word. My kid loved the card, and I was thrilled with the classiness of the finished product!!
