Happy Birthday 2 U - Woodware USA Challenge 33

Pin ItWith the upcoming 4th of July holiday here in the US, Woodware USA has challenged us to create a card using patriotic colors and/or theme, for their latest challenge (WWUSAC33). Instead of making a card specifically for the 4th, I used Large Small Greetings to create a card that could be used for the birthday of a friend/family member or the USA.

I started by putting together the background and base of the card. I stitched around the dictionary page, and if you look closely in the detail bar below, I stitched a frame around the definition for 'party'. After stamping the word 'birthday' onto wood veneer tape, I adhered the stamped 'happy' to the back of the strip. To finish out the sentiment, I used a die-cut '2' and stamped and matted the 'U' from Large Small Greetings.

Make sure to check out the challenge post HERE to find out how you can play along and be entered to win the monthly prize!
Just the details… (1) Cut the angled notch out of each end of the veneer tape, (2) Layered the "2" & "U" to finish the sentiment, (3) Stitched a frame around the definition for 'party'.

Challenges used for this card:
Woodware USA - #33 Patriotic Color and/or Theme
