Geometric Birthday Card


I have a geometric birthday card today that uses some SU! retired designer paper in Blackberry Bliss, along with some gold cardstock and a Darice daisy die. I die-cut the flower in gold, green and black to add some interest. The tiny tags were done with a retired SU! punch and stamped with a birthday message in Blackberry Bliss ink. The ribbon is from SU! (also retired) and has a tweed pattern that includes some woven gold fiber through it. The frame was made with 2 Lil Inker stitched rectangles, cutting a smaller one inside of the larger one, and the larger one was placed on the card front.

I'm entering this over at the Shopping our Stash SOS #361 which is "geometric patterns." I'm letting the designer paper do all that geometric work for me with this one :)

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Thursday! I hope all my US friends had a happy, healthy, and fun July 4th celebration!

Love how the patterned paper matches with the gold flowers and the details you added as the black centres, the ribbon with the gold fibres and the tiny tags are just precious! A winning design, well done!

Beautiful card Carol! I love those colors, the flowers just pop off that background. The tiny tags are adorable, I have this punch but rarely use it. I need to use it more often as I do love it. lol I am really loving that daisy die! Hugs, Brenda
