Elegant Red and White Happy Birthday

Hello everyone!
 It's Christi and today I am going to show you a fairly simple card that looks elegant (and just maybe expensive!)  I hope you enjoy it!

Before I get started on the details I wanted to tell you that this card is 5" x 7", which is larger than my typical card, which are either A2 (5 1/5" x 4 1/4") or occasionally square, which, for me typically runs 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".  I had considered trimming the die down but I am very glad I didn't.  Sometimes life calls for a big card and this is one of those times.

What I Used to Make My Card:
White Card Base, 5" x 7"
White & Red Cardstock
Tattered Lace Rose Panel, #D307
Simon Says Stamp Ultra Fine Embossing Powder, white
Nuvo Crystal Drops in White

This is my very first Tattered Lace die and it is amazing! The details are so pretty and delicate, I took a close up picture so you could see the flowers that are etched on the "long" side of the die.  I wanted to keep this card simple so all the flowers would be the focal point.  And while I made this a birthday card, you could certainly change the color and/or sentiment to read however you want.

First I die cut the main panel out of white card and layered in onto some red cardstock.  Then I cut the Memory Box die out twice from red.  I centered the main panel and attached the two side panels.  Lastly, I used the same red card and white embossing powder to have the Quietfire Design sentiment become a focal point.  I was going to use two white brads to hold the sentiment, but I made a bunch of my own Nuvo Crystal dots and used them in place. Thank you so much for reading my post, have a wonderful day! Christi
