Altenew Adore You Birthday Wishes

A woman I serve with in the young women’s organization at church has a birthday the first week of September.  Her favorite colors are blue and gray.  I had recently purchased Altenew’s Adore You stamp and dies and decided to use them for her birthday card.  I love the way that it turned out.

I stamped the flowers and leaves on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored them with Copic Markers B93, B95, B97, B99; G94, YG03.  I then ran them through the Big Shot with the matching dies.  I die cut a rectangle of the same white cardstock with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle and arranged the flowers the way I wanted them to determine where to stamp the sentiment from Penny Black Sprinkles & Smiles.  It was stamped with VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed with Ranger Detail Silver Embossing Powder, which pulled in a little sparkling gray.

Some of the flowers were adhered directly to the white rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and others were adhered using 3M ½” Foam Tape and some foam squares I have in my stash that has a slightly higher profile.  Silver Stickles were added to the stamen and then Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Silver Sequins were scattered around the flowers.

To accent the blue color of the flowers I decided to make the cardbase from Gina K. Designs 120# Navy Cardstock.  The white rectangle focal image was adhered directly to the front of the cardbase with Sookwang Be Creative Tape.  Clear Wink of Stella was added to the flowers and the card was done.
