Di's Digi Stamps Sunflower Ted Birthday Card

This is the 2nd outing for this no-brand card die and like its 1st outing I'm using a Di's Digi Stamp image as the focal point – Sunflower Ted (now on sale for just £1.00!).

I used some American Crafts Confetti Lucy Lemon Twist floral print paper from my stash behind the black die-cut. I have had this paper a long, long time, at least back to 2013 when I made this Spring Blossom's Mother's Day card with it and most recently (recent being relative) in 2014 on a vintage look Easter card. It's a few sheets of 12 x 12 paper, which I no longer buy, preferring smaller prints/paper for cards. I couldn't help but notice as I was getting these links, how my card making style has changed. 

The sentiment was created with Café & Brewery font. I dressed it up with some matt enamel dots.

  1. Precious image, wonderful coloring and design! I sometimes cringe when I look back at my 1st attempts at cardmaking. I was a scrapbooker and very elementary in that process as well. I will say I've come a long way Baby! Thanks for sharing your project with us at The Inspiration Station Challenge. We look forward to seeing more of your lovely designs.
