Borders gone wild - poppystamps style

I discovered die cutting a while ago mainly because I discovered Poppystamps and Memory box dies ( both designed by Dave Tauber) , so guess they are my favourite dies as really they form the majority of my collection of dies.

The card I have made for the challenges below uses 2 Poppystamps dies a happy birthday channel border die and one I have a total soft spot for as I love daises wragged daisy.

I decided on a pretty simple design which was relatively simple to make. I used a deep rich purple base card . I took a piece of white card slightly shorter in width than the card so as to leave a coloured band top and bottom on my finished card and cut the happy birthday channel border 6 times and then attached to the card.

I finished the card but cutting the wragged daisy from a piece of card I had been experimenting with oxide dies on so it has a fab variation of pinks purples and greens. Once attached to the card I used spectrum noir aqua glitter pen to add a bit of sparkle and I am so happy how it turned out, definite a design for the future when I'm in need of a quick card.

It could be adapted so easily for a guy bu just changing the colours and perhaps using leaves or grasses for the embellishment or for a child using some cute animal or even with a stamped and fussy cut image the possibilities are endless. Might have to look for some other channel set borders now but I think they are already on my wishlist.
