Lots of die cutting on this birthday card. I began by matting and layering yellow core'dinations and brown core'dinations cardstock onto cream card.
The top band is brown core'dination cardstock with a border cut using a die from the Spellbinders ric rac set. The letters for the sentiment were cut from yellow core'dinations cardstock using Tattered Lace elegant alphabet dies.
The lower band is again brown core'dinations cardstock to which I attached two borders from yellow core'dinations. These were created using the Tattered Lace victorian rectangle die. I then wrapped a double layer of yellow ribbon round the centre of the band before attaching it to the card. I then made a double bow and glued this to the centre of the ribbon strip.
The central digi image from Make It Crafty called 'small gifts' was coloured using Spectrum Noirs and edged with distress inks. I then matted it onto brown core'dinations cardstock.
