Birthday Card with MFT Cover Die

This is a birthday card created around the MFT Happy Birthday Block die. It's a cool design which can be used either as a background or the main image. This die is also a sentiment in itself!

I wanted some bold colours, so I stamped a background with balloons and watercolored them. Then I stamped an elephant in grey pigment ink with clear embossing powder and coloured it while I waited for the background to dry.

After sending the balloon panel through the die cutting machine, I glued all the letters onto a white piece of cardstock, using the negative die cut as a guide. Then this piece was adhered to a black panel, as I wanted to add a thin frame around the letters. I chose kraft cardstock for the card base.

In the end the elephant and a small sentiment was glued in place with foam tape.

The way this card was made is pretty straight forward, but it actually took me a few hours to get it done! First the watercolours and then glueing everything neatly in place. I will save the negative die cut and use it later for another card!
