Belli Challenge #90 - Creative Cuts & More

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another Belli Challenge!  This week the challenge is to make a Birthday themed card using some forgotten treasure from your stash.  We are sponsored by Creative Cuts & More, who provided us with a couple of their Birthday Kits to use for our samples. 

My samples were made using several elements from the Birthday Girl Kit.  My first card was made using the yellow purse die cut, covered with some of the patterned paper from the kit.  The two die cuts (heart and flower) and the brad on the flap are all from the kit.  The sentiment is a rub-on, also from the kit.

For the inside, I added some of the sticker strips that are included and stamped my sentiment using stamps from Repeat Impressions.

For my second card, I started with a clear acrylic gate fold crescent card and cut two pieces of patterned paper and adhered them on each flap of the acrylic card, then trimmed around the curved edges in the center.  The lilac belly band came in the kit as did the cupcake patterned paper I adhered to the top of it.

For the inside portion, I started with ivory card stock, layered with a smaller sheet of white card stock and added strips from more of the patterned paper in the kit.  At the top, I added a die cut flower and brad before I adhered it to the acrylic card base.  I cut a slightly smaller piece of white card stock that I adhered to the back of the card base to cover the brad prongs and adhesive. I also lined the inside sections of the flaps with white card stock to cover my adhesive.  The stamps are from Lockhart Stamp Company.

Terry, the owner of Creative Cuts and More wants to give away one of the Boy Birthday Kits as a prize to a lucky winner, so be sure to play along with us this week!  Leave a link to your Birthday themed project using Mr. Linky on today's Belli Challenge post.  If you post your project in an online gallery, use CBC90 for your keyword. 

Please head over to the Belli Challenge blog and see what the other Belli girls have done with the kit!

Thanks for stopping by!   Enjoy the rest of your week!

Too much cuteness going on here, girlie! Love the inside of your purse card - aren't those stickers fun? You did such a great job on the clear card. Love how you covered up the sentiment inside by adding designer paper to the clear folds.
