A Little Birthday Wish for Denise

As we have been traveling around the country I have tried to find a paper crafting store in each of the locations we have visited, but there just aren’t many around anymore, except for the big box stores like Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. However, in Springfield, MO I found a great store and was able to pick up a couple of new stamps, one was this love wreath from Memory Box.

My wonderful crafty friend Denise has a birthday September 4 and I wanted to create a special birthday card for her. I know that she loves green and yellow and so those are the Copic colors I used on this card.

When I am working on a white card I often like to cut another panel with a pretty edge. For this card I used Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Rectangle. The wreath was laid on the scalloped rectangle to determine where to stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things Twice the Wishes. I love the look of the soft texture that is added using the Stampin’ Up Subtle Embossing Folder, so I ran the scalloped rectangle through my Big Shot to add some additional visual interest. The scalloped rectangle was then adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase. I fussy cut the image and added foam tape to back and then adhered it to the center of the card. The final embellishment was to add Gold Stickles to the center of the large flowers and the card was done.
