Birthday Wishes

September 23, 2016

My friend Gwen celebrated her birthday recently and I was inspired by many of the cards I have seen on Pinterest to create her card.  I started by cutting Night of Navy card using both of the dies in the Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.  I cut the card the same size as the card front so that I could get a nice edge around the dies.  I wrapped the card with Burlap Ribbon and attached it to scored and folded Thick A4 Whisper White card.gwens-birthday-2

I cut the flowers from Very Vanilla card using the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies and sponged them with Daffodil Delight ink.  The flower centres are cut from Daffodil Delight card and the leaves from Pear Pizzazz using the Botanical Builders Framelits Dies.  I stamped the greeting from the Build a Birthday set onto Whisper White card using Night of Navy ink and once more sponged the edges using Daffodil Delight ink. gwens-card-2 The flowers, leaves and greeting are attached to the card front using a combination of Dimensionals and Glue Dots.  I added Basic Pearls to the centres of the flowers, although the extra large pearl is now retired.

Inside the card I wrapped Whisper White card with the Burlap Ribbon.  I cut two more flowers from Very Vanilla card and once more sponged them using Daffodil Delight ink.  The leaves are cut from Pear Pizzazz card.

This is a very bulky card but since it was hand delivered that is ok.  I don’t think it would survive the mail!

Bye for now,
