Happy Birthday XOXO


Hi, Today’s card is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge going on over at The Paper Players and for the Heart Challenge just starting at Double D.

For the Tic Tac Toe board, I chose the diagonal row of Birthday, Flower, Die-cut. I love using this die and have made valentines in the past, but thought the heart paper I had on my desk might make for a great Birthday card also, which I am in the need of very soon. I left some of the flowers opened so you can see the background paper behind and then pieced back some other ones using other colors. I love piecing things back together, to me it’s very relaxing.

Card Details: Heart die is SSS, the XOXO is from MFT, the Happy Birthday is also MFT.

Have a fabulous rest of your week! Nanc’

  6. So pretty Nanc’ – I love paper-piecing too! This is a great way to make your die stretch beyond Valentine’s too. Thanks for playing along with my TicTacToe Challenge over at The Paper Players this week! (P.S. these colours are perfect for Color Throwdown this week too!)

  7. It does make for a very pretty Birthday card! My FIL’s birthday is on the 14th, if I didn’t already make his card I would borrow your design! So pretty! So nice to see you over at The DD. Hope you haven’t been too cold in Florida and keep an eye out for those falling iguanas lol Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D, Hearts Challenge. Donna, DT Member.

  8. LOVE this! Doing partial inlay on that die cut is genius. I love how some of the background patterned paper peeks through. FABULOUS card, my friend!!!
