A Colorful Happy Birthday to You

Hi friends.  It's Bonnie from Make Time to Craft here today filling in for Amy.  We've had some really dreary weather in my area for a few weeks and I needed some color in my life so I went bold today.
I started out with scraps of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple card stock about 1-1/2" x 5".  I applied Stick It adhesive to the backs of all the pieces and then die cut each with the Border #3 die.  I then adhered all my pieces on to a panel of white card stock and then mounted that on an A2 sized top fold black card base.

Stick It adhesive is a wonderful adhesive for intricate die cuts.  You simply apply it to the back of your cardstock, die cut, peel off the backing and adhere it to your project.  Perfect for effortless, all-over adhesion.  The best part is that it doesn't 'grab' immediately, so there is a little time to make sure your die cut is exactly where you want it.  I use it on all my projects.
For the sentiment, I used the Rectangular Pierce & Cut Tool Lge Silver Pierce die.  If you don't have the size you need, you can often create one by partially cutting, flipping the die and line up the holes and cut the other half.  This really adds to the value of these sets!  
I then added some dimensional butterflies using the Small Exotic Butterlies #1 set and a pretty bi-color double loop bow made with gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

  1. A very bright and cheery card bonnie. Love the design using the border with the stick-it. Great info on how to extend the pierce tool to make it more versatile.
