Heartfelt Happiness Autumnal Birthday Card

Heartfelt Happiness Autumnal Birthday Card

Today’s project is a Heartfelt Happiness Autumnal Birthday Card. I have used various die sets including the Birds and Branches Bundle by Stampin’ Up! UK.

This card was more of a therapeutic crafting session for me. I took my time and filmed without the need of speaking. I then converted the video into a time lapse over on YouTube which you can see at the bottom of this page.

Various techniques were used in today’s card. Stamping, die-cutting, dry embossing and ink blending.

Look how pretty that little bird is. A very much Autumnal themed birthday card.

Look how beautiful those flowers and leaves are. Really pretty. Can you see the textured embossed section. Subtle but lovely at the same time.

Here is a close up of the other side of the card. Colours used are Crumb Cake, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Sea Foam and Bumblebee.
