~ A Golden Happy Birthday ~

Yesterday was a huge milestone for my Mother.  She turned 80 years old!  So over the past few weeks, as we have prepared to celebrate her special day, I have been in the mood to create a bevy of birthday cards.  For today's project, I opted to go with a gold and white color scheme with just a dash of black (for the sentiment).  I used a few of Our Daily Bread Designs' new releases, including the Vintage Bird Labels stamp set and Trellis Die.  


I started with a white card stock base measuring 4.25 x 11 inches, scored and folded at 5.5 inches...

Layer by Layer...

Gold Poster board cut slightly larger than the next layer...
  1. White Card Stock - ODBD's Pierced Rectangles Die
  2. Gold Poster Board - ODBD's ***NEW*** Trellis Die; 3 adhered side by side with dimensional foam to white CS base
  3. White Card Stock - ODBD's Ornate Ovals Die (white scallop you see peeking out below the sentiment panel...)
  4. Gold Poster Board - ODBD's Pierced Ovals Die 
  5. White Card Stock - ODBD's Vintage Labels Die - stamped and embossed with gold Embossing Powder using ODBD's ***NEW*** Vintage Bird Labels Die (image and sentiment stamped in black)
  6. White Seam Binding Bow

Here are the new items you see used on today's project...
