Elegant 3D Vignettes Inspiration | Birthday Card with Melissa

Hello!  Melissa Phillips here and I’m so happy to join you again using more of the beautiful 3D Vignettes Dies from Becca Feeken. I had a lot of fun creating this birthday card using these fabulous, layered dies.

Birthday cards are among my most favorite cards to create, and I just knew the tiny balloons in the Layered Happy Birthday Etched 3D Vignettes Dies would create something special.

I die cut my balloons and layered circle from watercolor cardstock.  I blended ink using a foam applicator over each balloon in pastel colors.  I then added a bit of water to create a soft, ethereal look.  Once the balloons were dry, I adhered them over my die cut circle using dimensional adhesive, embellishing with sequins.

I then layered my focal point over pattered paper cut using the beautiful Grand Dome 3D Vignettes Etched Dies.  I added my sentiment using stamps and a die cut banner from the Oh Happy Day Elegant 3D Vignettes collection.

    I really love the way you colored the balloons 🎈. I bought this set too and even though it looks complex it goes together like peaches 🍑 and cream. TFS. Love this daily blog and inspiration!!

    Melissa, this is so beautiful! I loved your soft hues and attention to show off some of the images individually! These new dies by Becca are just so delicious to look at!! Am still awaiting to order the Grand Caliber die when it comes in and I might get this Grand dome and Happy Birthday that goes so well together. Your card is very inspiring! Thanks for sharing!

    Hi, what kind of card stock do I need to buy so ink from stamps don’t run? I bought a package of card’s and my ink from stamps didn’t turn out well.
