Tuesday Trigger: Happy Birthday to You!

Cath at Moxie Fab World has a very special Tuesday Trigger in honor of her mother's milestone birthday this week. While her mom enjoys Hawaii, we are challenged to make a birthday card inspired by this photo.

I love the whimsical, folk art look of the Trigger and pulled out a few dies and felt to try capture the feel  on my card.

The bird was challenging, as I cut it first with a Tim Holtz Caged Bird die and then had to blindly line up the bird with the wing on the die to get the cutout look I wanted. 

The leaves are cut with the TH Regal Crest die and the flowers are My Favorite Things Pretty Posies Die-namics - all the felt is MFT and a dream to cut.

Once again, I am also linking up to Simon Says - Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. This is a pretty card, and a great take on the trigger photo.

  2. Hey Jacquie! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  3. Hi Jacquie! Love how you decided to use felt on your card ... it really fits in perfectly with the folk art theme of the challenge! Well done : )


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
