Spellbinders Card - (Borderabilities) Curved Borders One Birthday Card

I made this card for my nieces Diwata and Finina and my friend Beatrice. This is actually a very simple basic three-fold card elegantly enhanced by the flower nicely bunched on top of a very beautiful Memory Box die, Cluster of Carnations, and the embossed background using the Cuttlebug embossing folder by Anna Griffin, Wildflower Gate. The very nice Spellbinders border from the Borderabilities Curved Borders One added to the simple elegance of the card along with the very rare Marianne Design Anja's label used for the Happy Birthday sentiment which I had difficulty creating in Silhouette Studio to fit the label perfectly. I created a pocket from the first fold of the card for the message insert which I created in Silhouette Studio tracing the outline of the same Memory Box Cluster of Carnations die used on the front of the card and on the matching box.

I created two color versions of the card, one is a very subtle blending of the ink used, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye. Using the same color of ink, I made another card with a much darker blending of the ink making it so much more pronounced. I used my new favorite Judikins Color Dusters. They are so easy to use and as I mentioned in my previous card post, the brush is so forgiving, no worries of smudges.

For my blog followers who are interested in the box template and who happen to own the Marianne Design Anja Labels set and would like the Happy Birthday sentiment, just indicate your request on your comment. I can also include the customized message insert.

Happy crafting!
