Stylized Birthday

     I found this Spellbinders die set on the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago. I thought it would be fun to work with. I have to say it was just as much fun as I thought it would be.  My fave part were the berries on the card and especially on the envelope.

Card and Envelope
     I die cut all pieces on white. All of the color was added using ink on daubers. For the berries on the card, I inked with Jelly Bean Green, then placed the metal die over the berries and daubed Wild Lilac thru the die. As a final touch 3 sparkly dots were added to each berry with a Sakura Copper Gelly Roll.
     For the berries on the envelope, I used the negative of the berries' die cut to ink with Jelly Bean Green, then inked Wild Lilac thru the die and added the dots of Sakura Copper Gelly Roll. Lastly, I inked around the outside of the dies using Powder Blue. 
     The leaves are inked with Jelly Bean Green and the identical offset leaves are inked with Fresh Asparagus.
     I created a layered tic-tac-toe background using card stock and patterned paper.
