Bijou Floral Alphabet Birthday

The new Bijou Floral Alphabet stamps and Open Letterbox Alphabet from Clarity Crafts combine beautifully.  Here I made a birthday card.

Die cut a topper from Clarity stencil card using the 6” x 5” nested rectangle die and a mat from black card using the corresponding nested rectangles picot die.
Add the H and the B from the Bijou Floral Alphabet stamps in Black Soot Distress archival ink.
Add the triple box es from the Outline Letterbox Alphabet set after the H in Black Soot Distress Archival ink and mask them up. Add the single box in the same manner. Remove the mask.
Add the triple box, followed by two lots of the double box after the H in the same way.
Add ‘appy’ and ‘irthday’ to the boxes using the Outline Letterbox Alphabet stamps.
Colour the lettering using Faber-Castell Polychromos (#153, #154, #156, #112, #266, #134, #135).
Working directly onto the front of a 7” x 7” white card blank, add elements of the Flower Burst stencil in Victorian Velvet and Seedless Preserves Oxides.
To finish, mat up the topper and add it to the front of the card.

That is lovely. Clean, clear and classy.
(I'm so glad to have the smaller set on it's way as it will make some names easier to fit in!)
