Art Deco Birthday Greetings
by Kim Singdahlsen

All of the Deco products in the recent Summer Theater release are absolutely spectacular and there are many beautiful cards on this blog using them but I hadn't used any of them yet. I definitely wanted to so for inspiration I googled Art Deco Images and saw many basic black/white or black/gold images. I was thrilled to see that because I've been struggling with ideas for a birthday card for my SIL and it all came together because she decorates everything with black and white photography. 

I did the black and white background with the Geometric Deco Plate and a gorgeous sentiment from Art Deco Birthday Greetings. The flowers are the Village Rose and Background with a few leaves from Orchard Leaves.

I love the curves of the flowers against the geometric lines of the background. It's a beautiful contrast.  Then I used glitter paper for the background of the flowers to give them some birthday sparkle!

I don't post any cards that I don't like - and I have more than my fair share of those - but some cards I truly love and this is one of them.  The bright flowers against the black and white, the curves against the straight lines, the cheerful colors and the beautiful sentiment - it just all worked for me!

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.  It's a beautiful background. By the way, there's also a separate frame that goes inside the square so it can also be used with smaller sentiments.  And if you browse the blog, you'll see many, many other gorgeous uses for this die!Kim Floral Signature copy

So pretty. Love that die cut in black with the pretty yellow flowers. I just got the Geometric Deco Plate die and can't wait to use it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Kim, This is such a beautiful and elegant card, the art deco framework looks stunning with the roses, a truly art deco piece.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
