Floral Birthday Card

Hi all,

Last week was my birthday week, and with the holiday and everything, I took a few days off from the blog.  Today I’m back with what else but a birthday card of course!

I wanted to play with my MFT stamp set Sweet Roses and the coordinating dies and this is what I came up with.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  That pretty pattern paper comes from My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy 6×6 paper pad.  It coordinated perfectly with Memento Potter’s Clay ink.  I used Gina K. Designs Dark Chocolate card stock for the matting.

I love this stamp set because it has both the solid and the outline versions of the same stamp.  So I stamped the solid first and then the outline with the same color of ink.  I just love how easy it is to create these.  I had these brads in my stash.  Don’t they coordinate perfectly?  Love it when stuff in my stash works well with the newer goodies.  For the leaves I used Memento Bamboo Leaves ink following the same process as for the flowers.  This set doesn’t include stems.  What to do?  I cut thin strips of the card stock and solved that problem.

For the sentiment I turned to an older set, MSE’s Birthday Sentiments, with some Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  I added some ribbon for texture and rounded the bottom corners with my Corner Chomper.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
