Birthday Card with Alphabet and Number Dies

I have a birthday card with alphabet and number dies to share with you today.  I don’t often use alpha dies on my card fronts but I thought they would be perfect for a “special girl’s” 21st birthday card that I needed to make. I used the Rubbernecker Upper Case Alphabet w/ stitch Die Cut, Lower Case Alphabet w/ stitch Die Cut and  Number Outlines w/ stitch Die Cut.  I created the sentiment on the Nested Rectangle Scallop w/ Holes and embellished the card with flowers made using the Mixable Flower Stack and foliage using the Small Leaf Group.   I couldn’t resist adding Tiny Flower Buds and Tiny Leaf Buds to the letters and numbers for another feminine element.

Come see how I made this birthday card with alphabet and number dies.

The Letters and Numbers

  • Attach strips of mounting tape to the white scalloped layer and attach it to the pink card base.
  • Cut the upper and lower case letters and the numbers and attach tiny pieces of mounting tape to the back of each.
  • Set the letters and numbers in place on the white scalloped layer for placement.
  • Remove mounting tape backing off one letter and/or number at a time and attach it to the white layer.

Forming The Flowers

  • Cut a few sets of the Mixable Flower Stack. I used four sets so I would have doubles of each layer to create a fuller flower.
  • Place the flower sections face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the round stylus.
  • Turn the flower sections face up and push down in the center of each to pull the petals up.
  • Apply glossy accents to the flower sections and attach them together, offsetting the layers to create a well rounded flower.
  • Cut a set of the Tiny Flower Buds, place them face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of each with a tiny tipped stylus.

The Foliage

  • Cut two or three sections of the Small Leaf Group.
  • Cut one section of the Leaf Buds

Attaching the Flowers and Foliage

  • Attach the larger flowers in the open space on the white scalloped layer using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the foliage and tuck the ends under the flowers and securing them in place with the point of your paper piercer or tweezers.
  • Attach the leaf buds and tiny flowers to the letters and numbers with glossy accents. I thought a double flower and leaf looked good on the H, 2 and B to emphasize them a little more.

Come see how I made this pretty birthday card with alphabet and number dies.

I hope you have been inspired to pull out your dies to create your own birthday card with alphabet and number dies.  Thank you for coming by today and  take good care, especially if you are in the path of Florence.
