Raised Word Technique ~ Happy Birthday

Happy Monday!
Glad to be sharing tonight after having a rough two days...I was fighting what I thought was a losing battle with the camera. Although I have been taking pictures with our Nikon camera with little difficutly, the camera decided not to be my friend. I was about to toss it in the trash and call it a day. After venting, chatting with a few crafty friends, and searching the internet for photography tips...I decided it would be okay. Then Theresa (thank you again Theresa) sent me a message letting me know I won at MFT and I started doing the happy dance (actually seat dancing since I was on my way home from the grocery store). I don't know what is wrong with my camera/lens, but tomorrow is another day to try and figure it out.

This was one of the cards I made just before my camera issues. I needed to make a masculine card, but I also wanted to try the raised word technique. After choosing the pattern paper, I placed the happy die where I wanted it and ran it through the Cuttlebug. I cut "happy" 4 more times, then stacked and glued it together.

The word "happy" has a camouflaged look. The video I watched said to add the small pieces that were cut out (A and P), but I like the pop of color so it doesn't completely blend in. I cut birthday in the same color as the frame.

The MFT birthday candles were stamped with diagonal lines going in the opposite direction of the background paper.  I turned the hearts upside down, so they would look like a small flame.

Looking forward to a busy appointment tomorrow, my daughter's surgery re-check is Wednesday, and lots of crafty projects in the works.

Stay Creative,
