Ornate Edger Celebration Card

Hi all.  I have a 21st birthday card to share today for the daughter of some neighbours who live across the road from us and they have invited us to a celebration barbecue this evening so let's hope it doesn't rain.  I have used a die by Creative Expressions called Teasel Edger which is having it's first outing, and a piece of floral paper from a freebie pad which I got eons ago.

I started with a 7" x 5" card as this die is a long slender shape and it fits nicely on this size card.  I cut the die along the edge and then gave it some blended colour using Spun Sugar Distress ink, as I think they look like flower buds when coloured in this way, and I masked off the inside of the card to just beyond the die and ink blended that using the same colour, giving it a bit of a pattern using a stencil from a set which I got at The Range.  I cut the piece of patterned paper so it was a little longer and wider than I needed and then laid the die so it overlapped just to cut into the edge of it.  When I had die cut it I line it up on to the card and then marked where to cut it down to, just a little smaller than the card..luckily this worked well.  Finally I coloured a piece of card using the same pink ink and backed it with a piece of Stick It adhesive before die cutting the sentiment and numbers.  I decided to use my Wink of Stella Clear Gloss pen over the top to give them a lovely shimmer but it doesn't show up well on the photo.

Before I go I would like to introduce my new follower, and thank you Uschi, whose blog you will find here and I'm sure she would love you to pay her a visit.
