Twofer Birthday Cards

Well today I'm sharing two cards made in the same instance....
I used this fabulous CUTplorations die to create a stencil.... and in the process if you place a white card panel underneath you get two images.

Card 1 is the  stencilled result - using my blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks....the smaller brushes are a great help.  I attached the panel to a white card and die cut a frame using two stitched dies... then stamped the sentiment on a stitched rectangle and embossed with Leaf green embossing powder.  To finish I added a few white Nuvo crystal drops.

The second card is the die cut panel with the blended DO colours and then attached to a white card panel, framed with a green layer onto a light green card.  The sentiment was stamped in black and clear embossed and attached with foam tape.

I am playing along with THE STENCIL March challenge at STAMPlorations.... hoping my die cut is ok as the stencil element   ....    AND   ....  also with their Never Ending Anything Goes challenge
Thanks for stopping by my blog   ---  have a Happy Day
