Sarah’s Birthday Card

January 16, 2012

I made this card for my daughter who celebrated her birthday yesterday.  Happy Birthday Sarah.  We actually went out to dinner on Saturday night to celebrate.

I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  I attached a strip of Night of Navy card stock which has been punched using the very beautiful Lace Ribbon Border punch behind the embossed Whisper White card and then attached it to another piece of Whisper White card stock.   I stamped “happy birthday wishes” from the Petite Pairs stampset in the top right hand corner using Night of Navy ink.  I added mats of Night of Navy and Ridinghood Red card stock and then attached the whole piece to scored and folded Whisper White card.  I stamped the large flower image from the Flower Fest stamp set using Ridinghood Red ink onto Ridinghood Red cardstock 4 times.  I punched one image using the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle and cut smaller sections from each of the other three images.  I stamped the other flower image from the same stamp set  using Bravo Burgundy ink onto Bravo Burgundy card twice.  I punched one image using the Fancy Flower punch and cut out the centre of the flower from the other image.  I also stamped the leaf image three times onto Always Artichoke card stock using Always Artichoke ink.  I layered the sections of flowers on top of each other using dimensionals.  I arranged the leaves and flowers and attached them to the card front.  The bravo Burgundy flower is attached using dimensionals.  Lastly I added two large Basic Pearls to the centres of the flowers.

I think this has turned out really pretty and I am pleased to say that Sarah loved the card as well.

I’d really love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.
