Botanical Birthday

Hi everyone, sharing a little more information on the card that I made for my Stampin' Up! entry for the opportunity to stamp projects for the OnStage display boards for the April Event.


I started with a Watermelon Wonder A2 card and cut off 4.5cm from the front.  I then added a Whisper White mat 5.5cm x 14.3cm to which a piece of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper 5cm x 13.8cm was added. 

Using the second largest framelit I cut 2 Watermelon Wonder Deco Label pieces (one for the inside). The one for the card front I adhered with double sided tape, lining up the points on the centre top and bottom of the Deco Label with the edge of the card front.

Using the second smallest framelit I cut 2 Whisper White Deco Label pieces (one for the inside).  This was embossed using the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhere to the larger Watermelon Wonder Deco Label.

I then stamped "Happy Birthday" from the Rose Wonder stamp set using Archival Black Ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock 3cm x 8cm.  I adhered this to a Watermelon Wonder cardstock mat 3.5cm x 8.5cm and then adhered it to the card front centred across the Deco Label, making sure that the edge of the sentiment panel was lined up with the edge of the inside of the card (hope this makes sense but just look at the picture and you will see what I mean).

I cut my flower from Blushing Bride cardstock and the leaves from Mossy Meadow and Old Olive cardstock using the Botanical Builder Framelits.  I sponged Watermelon Wonder on the flower centre and then added a Watermelon Wonder stamen piece, an Iced Rhinestone was added to finish the flower. The Old Olive leaves were stamped with Old Olive ink using the Botanical Blooms stamp set.  The leaves and flowers were arranged on the side of the Deco Label piece, a Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper butterfly was add along with some Blushing Bride enamel glitter dots from the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit.


For the inside cover of the card I added a Whisper White cardstock mat 5.5cm x 14.3cm to which a piece of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper 5cm x 13.8cm was added.  For the inside back of the card I added a Whisper White cardstock mat 14.3cm x 10cm and a piece of Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper 13.8cm x 9.5cm.  The Deco Labels were adhered to finish the card.

Thank you for visiting.
