Happy Birthday Mum

January 3, 2019

My Mum celebrated her birthday yesterday, and today I thought I would share the card I made for her with you.  However, before I do, are you excited?  Today is the day, the Occasions catalogue and  the Sale-A-Bration catalogue go live, so you can start ordering all the wonderful things you have been seeing here and elsewhere on the internet.

I always create a card for my Mum early because it is so busy over Christmas and I don’t want to run out of time to make her a special card.  I used the sketch challenge at Freshly Made which has already finished, unfortunately, however it was a great sketch.  I embossed Whisper White card using the Subtle Dynamic Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Blackberry Bliss card.  I attached two pieces of Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper to the embossed card.  I cut Whisper White card using one of the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and stamped “happy birthday” from the Best Birds stamp set using Blackberry Bliss ink.  I stamped the large leaf from the First Frost stamp set using Tranquil Tide ink and cut it out using the co-ordinating Frosted Boutique Framelits Die.  I stamped three small flowers from the same stamp set using Petal Parade ink and cut them out using the co-ordinating Frosted Boutique Framelits Die I inked the smaller flower using Blackberry Bliss and Tranquil Tide Stampin’ Write Markers, stamping twice onto Whisper White card, and cut them out using the co-ordinating Frosted Boutique Framelits Die.  I attached the leaf and small flower as well as two small Petal Parade flowers directly onto the left hand side of the stamped oval, I attached the third Petal Parade flower using a dimensional.  The whole panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I attached one of the small Blackberry Bliss/Tranquil Tide flowers.

I love this paper and am a little sad it is now retired, however, the stamp set First Frost and the co-ordinating Frosted Boutique Framelites Dies have carried over and are still available for purchase.  This stamp set has so many possibilities beyond Christmas!

Bye for now,
