Floral Birthday Card

Hi everyone,

I've been able to make a few cards over the Easter break so thought I'd share them with you.

This card is a special Birthday card I made for my sister using one of the new sets in our catalogue. The set is 'Fifth Avenue Floral' and I loved stamping with it as it's perfect for a card with 'clean lines' and not too much fussiness!

I stamped two of the flowers in different colours over the base card then stamped the greeting (which was very appropriate for this particular card) onto white card and punched it out using a mega scalloped circle punch.
To give it a bit of depth, I sponged around the scallops with the Baha Breeze ink.

I then cut a strip of Baha Breeze cardstock and punched one edge with the Scallop Border punch and attached a strip of co-ordinating paper from the Urban Oasis DSP set to this.

Before mounting these strips to the base card, I wrapped a piece of Old Olive wide grosgrain ribbon around them and added a ribbon bow. To finish off the card I added 3 pale aqua adhesive pearls to the centre of the bow.

(For the card insert, I printed a greeting in matching green on my computer and stamped some of the flowers in the bottom corner to co-ordinate with the front of the card.)

My sister was hoping I'd give her one of my handmade cards and she was very pleased with this one. I have more ideas for using this set so will show my cards here when I've done them so you can have a look.
