Fall – Happy Birthday |GeoBurst Die

I have several folks in my family with Fall Birthdays.  I love creating with fall colors but wanted to make something that didn’t have fall items (like leaves, etc.).  I wanted to create something very different using the fall color scheme.  So I went to my favorite die on the planet – the GeoBurst Die(DI-0217).  Yes, it is by far on the top of my list of go to dies.  So unique and so many uses for it. 

Fall GeoBurst Birthday 1

I stamped the Happy Birthday, that comes from the Arr Catey (AT-0202) stamp in Hazelnut Ink (IP-0012) onto a piece of Banana Cream (CS-0087) and then layered that onto a piece of Cocoa Powder (CS-0008) cardstock.

Using the GeoBurst Die (DI-0217), I cut out a piece of Cocoa Powder (CS-0008) cardstock.  then using the 1 1/2″ circle punch (TO-0031 and TO-0015) I punched out 14 circles from Summer Days (CS-0033) cardstock.  I adhered the circles to the back of the cut GeoBurst Cocoa Powder piece using Craft Glue (AD-0111) [the circles were adhered to the center each GeoBurst].  I cut off the excess circles with our Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064) [best shears ever, non-stick and self sharpening – and they cut through ribbon like magic].

This panel was then adhered to a Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) card base.  The Happy Birthday banner was adhered on top of that.  I added some Gold Silk (IP-0096) and Sparkle Silk (IP-0126).  And finished it off with some Rainbow Drops (AC-0178) and Fashion Gold (AD-0292).

I made another card using the same idea but changed the circles to Tangerine Fusion (CS-0036) and made the card base Summer Days (CS-0033).
