{Winnie & Walter} 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop Celebrating Love and Friendship

 

Welcome to Winnie & Walter's 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop! I'm delighted to be celebrating Love & Friendship with Winnie & Walter on this special occasion so I made two cards, one celebrating friendship and the other celebrating love. Be sure to visit the entire hop list below and leave comments along the way for your chance to win!


To create my friendship card, I combined Sentimental: Gift and The Big, the Bold and Friends Cutaways to create a custom sentiment. Then I used dies from Essentials: Audrey Cutaways for the scalloped mat, borders, butterflies and hearts.


I used both borders from Audrey Cutaways to underline the word friend from The Big, the Bold and Friends. Then I backed it with coloured cardstock to coordinate with the hearts. The large die cut word was popped up with fun foam for dimension and I modified the original die by cutting off the letter s for singularity. The silver glitter butterflies are layered over slate cardstock.


For my love card, I combined Sentimental: Love and the Love Cutaway to create the custom sentiment. I used Katharine Cutaways for the mat and Audrey Cutaways for the tag and heart.


The large word die was layered with silver glitter and popped up with fun foam. I also heat embossed Eva's Favorite Flowers on vellum to embellish the word love and finished with a white silk bow on the flower.


The printed vellum and patterned paper from both cards are from a retired Cosmo Cricket paper pad called Vellumptuous.
