Sometimes, you have a card base sitting on your desk and scraps of designer paper and wondering what can I do with this. Well, that’s how I felt before I created this card. I had a card base in Bermuda Bay that I had embossed with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder and didn’t know what to do with it. Then I noticed I had a couple of pieces of the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper sitting around on the desk and all of a sudden a light bulb went off in my head. The colors were perfect so I put them together and created this pretty birthday card. The lighter color petal pink border around the larger designer series paper is actually the reverse side of the printed paper.
I stamped the perennial flower on to a piece of Perennial Essence Vellum paper in versamark and added the new Shimmer White Embossing Powder to give it some bling and punched them out with the Perennial Flower Punch. The top layer of the flower is popped up with a dimensional. I actually had the perennial flower punched on my desk too so everything worked well together. For the longest time, I didn’t know what to do with all those pieces but I think it came together very nicely.
The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set and I chose to stamp it with Tuxedo Memento Black Ink.
For the inside, I just added a layer of petal pink cardstock and with tuxedo memento black ink, I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Cheer stamp set and added a perennial flower in the bottom right corner with Bermuda Bay and Petal Pink Ink.
