Carousel Birthday Cards


When I first saw this Carousel Silhouette die , I just knew 
I would want to make birthday cards with it . 

For this card , I layered a cream colored patterned paper over black textured self adhesive cardstock.

To pretty it up I added a pink ribbon die cut from the MLSB Cameo & Oval Die 
with a touch of lavender pearl bling. 
Some Diamond stickles on the carousel finishes this card off quickly.

I used the tickets cut from the Ticket booth die to "hold" my sentiment using MLSB mini alphas. 

I also tried out die cutting the carousel in black self adhesive cardstock
and gave the horses a different treament from the first card - 
I used Tim Holtz Distress stains  for the blue and green horses
 and topped them off with Diamond Stickles,
 and faced them the opposite way from the first card.

I just love how versatile this Carousel Silhouette die is - 
and I'm only just getting started using them on different types of projects.
