NCC Bday Honeycomb 02756
Today we are taking another look at the North Coast Creations January release! This is such a fabulous release, with beautiful florals and lovely greetings for all occasions. For my card, I used the Floral Sentiments 2 and two ODBD images that complement it and the paper I used.

On a piece of the designer paper, I stamped the Happy Birthday greeting with the chalk ink in a section of the dp that seemed perfect for it. After die cutting on a curve, I also die cut a border section using the reverse side of the same piece of dp. I stamped the sweet branch image w/ the teal ink, added a hint of color and fussy cut it.On a piece of ivory card stock, I stamped the ODBD honeycomb bg with a combination of the two distress inks and the Memento ink. I added color with Copics in just a few of the honeycombs and sponged the edges with the straw ink. Since the card front was white, I also sponged the edges of it to better coordinate. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

For my foodie card using type print, I chose this sweet cupcake & candle die. I die cut the cupcake a few times out of white card stock, glued two together and attached them over a fussy cut cupcake. To know where to cut the solid version, I use the die to just emboss (not cut) another cupcake, then cut around the outside edge. The third die cut version I colored w/ yellow and pink Copic markers then attached it on top for a little more dimension. Then I added some stickles on the icing for a little sparkle.

The type print is all over the paper I used. I thought this collection of Basic Grey would be perfect as every piece has type print all over it. I die cut the pink layers around the cupcake and fussy cut the black print layer. The bottom of two of the larger layers were die cut with a border die and I used some Ranger black enamel to make the black dots. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
