Happy Birthday!

Good morning!! I'm happy to be popping in with a card featuring Frantic Stamper Dies! I had a really fun time with this one!! I used some fun dies that I want to share with you!!
First off, isn't that triangle background fun!?
I started out by using a scrap piece of cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot with the Triangle Card Panel (FRA-Die-09267), and then used that piece of cardstock as a stencil. I got some ink and my ink blending tool and made sure to get all the triangle shaded with green ink. Then when I took the cardstock stencil off, I had this great green on green card front--love!!!

I cut out a turquoise Dragon Fly from the Dragon Fly Pair die (FRA-Die-09452). I simply attached it to the card front.  Then I cut out my Happy Birthday Script (FRA-Die-09355) with white cardstock, while leaving the dies in the negative space so I could add my desired colors of ink w/o worrying about bending the die or ripping it at all. After I had used my blending tool and inks to get my desired shading, I adhered them to the card front. I put the card front a turquoise card, and then for the final touch added a nice thick coat of glossy accents! Once dry, the sentiment is super shiny and has some great dimension!!
I hope you have a great one!! Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
