Delightful Birthday

May 30, 2017

I have a friend who celebrated her birthday yesterday and I thought I would share the card I made for her with you.  This one is once more full of new product but it is only a couple of days now till the new catalogue launches.

I cut two pieces of Fresh Fig designs from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack and attached them to the left hand side of Whisper White card.  I stamped the greeting from the Vertical Greeting stamp set onto the right hand side of the Whisper White card  using Fresh Fig ink.  I wrapped the edges of the designer series paper with Fresh Fig 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon and attached the Whisper White card to scored and folded Fresh Fig card.  I stamped the flower stem from the Daisy Delight stamp set twice onto Whisper White card using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I stamped the solid leaf twice onto scrap Whisper White card using Lemon Lime Twist ink which I stamped off once first.  I stamped the outline leaf over the top of the solid leaf using Lemon Lime Twist ink and cut them out.  The hand cut leaves are attached to the flower stems.  I cut out the images using a circle from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and attached it to a scalloped circle cut from Fresh Fig card.  The image panel is attached to the card front.  I stamped the daisy from the Daisy Delight stamp set onto Whisper White card using Fresh Fig ink.  I punched the flowers out using the co-ordinating Daisy Punch, cut the flowers in half and stacked them on top of each other to create the flowers.  (The Daisy Delight stamp set and the Daisy Punch are available to purchase as a bundle when the new catalogue goes live.)  I stamped the flower centre onto scrap Whisper White card using Fresh Fig ink and punched them out using the 1/2″ Circle Punch.  I attached the flower centres to the flowers and attached one flower to the left hand stem.  I attached the second flower to the right hand stem using dimensionalsLastly I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the centre of each flower.

To decorate the inside I stamped the flower stem onto the lower left hand corner of Whisper White card using Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I stamped and cut out the leaf image and attached it to the flower stem.  I stamped cut, layered  and attached another flower stamped using Fresh Fig ink.  I also stamped the flower centre using Fresh Fig ink, punched it out using the 1/2″ Circle Punch and attached it to the flower.

After creating this card, I needed to find some packaging for the gift.  I had a large plain white gift bag in my stash and created a panel to go across the front of the back to match the card.  I stamped the stem, leaves and flower and created a circle panel as I did for the front of the card.  I also used a new die, the Happy Birthday Thinlit to create a greeting from Fresh Fig card.  The circle and the greeting are attached to Whisper White card and then Fresh Fig card.  I love how this co-ordinates the card and the gift for a total Wow.

Anyway, I love this card and gift bag.  At first I thought it might have been a little too dark using just the one colour, but the addition of the Lemon Lime Twist is absolutely perfect and gives it just the right amount of zing.  I am also loving those faceted gems, so pretty.  I can’t wait for this new catalogue to go live.  What about you, are you getting excited.

Bye for now,

Kris
