Birthday Cross

Don't throw away your negative or left-over pieces from your die cuts. This gold oval was a left-over piece from the Heirlooms Frames & Dies. I have held on to it for months, and finally decided to use it today. I think it is a perfect background for my Smoky Slate cross. Thoughts?

   Teeny Tiny Wishes

   Smoky Slate A-2, 2 x 3
   Basic Black 5-3/8 x 4-1/8
   Best Year Ever DSP 1 x 5-1/4 (2)
   Simply Marbleous DSP 2 x 5-1/4
   Gold Foil Paper Oval
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), 1/2 x 2-1/4 or Scrap

   Gorgeous Grape

   Die Cutting

   Cross of Hope Framelits
   Heirlooms Frames & Dies
   Stitched Shapes Framelits (Largest Oval)
   Classic Label Punch
   Basic Pearl Jewels

First, I die cut the Smoky Slate Cross, using the Cross of Hope Framelits.

I then adhered it to a left-over Gold Foil Paper oval from my stash. It was the center from the Heirlooms Frames & Dies that I used on another card. If you do not have this die set, you can use the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits. 

Next, I stamped and punched out the sentiment, using Gorgeous Grape ink, the Classic Label Punch, and a scrap of Basic White card-stock.

I then assembled the card:

   I adhered the the two Crushed Curry strips of DSP and the Gorgeous Grape Simply Marbleous DSP onto a Basic White panel.
   This panel was then adhered to a Basic Black matte, and then onto the Smoky Slate card front.
   Next, I adhered the Gold Foil oval with the Smoky Slate Cross onto the upper-center of the card.
   I added the sentiment below it and adhered a pearl on each end of the sentiment.
   Lastly, I adhered the other Basic White panel to the inside of the card.
