The Build-a-Scene dies from Taylored Expressions are so versatile in how you can mix and match them. Every time I see a project created with the Rolling Clouds die set it always makes me smile. Stitched clouds are so pretty! While they are usually paired with other Build-a-Scene dies, I wanted to create a lovely background with lots of simply beautiful layers of clouds.
To create this background, I simply cut out several different styles of the clouds and adhered them to a 4" x 5.25" panel from Sugar Cube cardstock. All the beautiful curves of the clouds make a sweet and lovely white background. All that white is made interesting with the subtle texture of the layers and the visual movement of the curves.
Every celebration needs a banner (at least I think so!) They are so festive and fun. I didn't have a specific banner die on hand so I went through my dies to see if there was something else I could substitute. The Build-a-Tag 3 die set has this wonderful notched sentiment strip in it. Folded over, it makes a fun and festive banner, especially when paired up with a lovely color combo of felt. I've simply folded them and adhered them over the hemp string with a hot glue gun.
The bottom of the card design makes a great place to add a stamped sentiment in all the white space. This "Happy Birthday" one is from the Small Packages stamp set and I love the two unique fonts.
To finish off the design, I glued on some sweet sequin accents throughout the card. I love how they catch the light and add a lovely festive feel to the card.
