Birthday Rose

Anne here with some inspiration for you today.  Today's card is so sparkly and full of glitter, that you might have to wear shades (especially if you're outside!).  This birthday card features three Die-Versions dies: Rose Whispers die (currently out of stock), "Happy" Sweet Wordlet, and "Birthday" Sweet Wordlet.  I love using Sweet Wordlets on my card fronts as they are the perfect size - not too big and not too small.  You can check out all of them here.

To create this card, I started out by die cutting the rose and my sentiment words from white cardstock and then colored all three pieces with Copic markers.  I also highlighted the leaves on the rose with Viva Inka Gold (Green Yellow).

A basic shape die was used to die cut some Sticker Paper for the background of the rose.  I adhered the flower and my sentiment first, and then added some Rose Gold glitter by Sparkle N Sprinkle to the inside portion of the die cut for my petals.   The rest of the sticker paper was covered with Crystal glitter by PK Glitz.

I dry embossed the card front with a Tonic Studios embossing folder (Layered Leaves) and then rubbed more Viva Inka Gold on the raised surface and around the edges.

To finish the card, I added a strip of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape (double sided tape) to the top, covered it with more Rose Gold glitter and then tied a strip of ribbon on top.  The inside was left blank for a personal message.


  1. So sparkly Anne! You certainly used a bit of glitter here! The rose die is gorgeous and versatile! So pretty.

  2. Beautiful Birthday card Anne! Love all the sparkles!
