Fun Feminine Birthday Card - vinyl project & link to a My Memories Giveaway

Are you getting the idea I’m addicted to vinyl?  Well… I AM!  Here is a pretty card I made recently.

Feminine-Birthday-Card-Vinyl_Barb-Derksen

 

Supplies:

Vinyl cut of the woman

Vinyl cut of the word “BIRTHDAY”

Various Stamps

Designer paper

Ribbon - Offray (WalMart)

 

Method:

This card just “fell together” for me.  As you can see most of the elements on this 4.25 x 5.5 inch card are just basic.  The specialness of this card lies in both the beautiful cut from a dingbat font of the woman and also the type of sparkly vinyl I used. 

I am unable to provide you the actual cut file because this is a dingbat from a demo font - but you could go get it yourself and make your own cuts.  The font is called “Sewing Patterns” and you can find it HERE. As far as I can see you can use them for your own personal projects. 

I traced, measured and made the cut file for this dingbat, then I made and “offset” to back her and draw attention to her on the card by raising her up with foam tape when putting the card together. 

The lettering was a simple font and I once again cut it in some gorgeous black sparkled vinyl I have. 

Please visit again in three days as I have another project - similar but even more “wow”!!!
