Anemone Happy Birthday

Even though I love the font of the Mama Elephant Birthday Wishes stamp I rarely use it because it is so large.  But it worked perfectly with this card design.

I stamped the flowers and leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto some Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock, since I planned to color them with Copic Markers. The sprig was stamped with Altenew Forest Glad so the stems would be green. The Copic Markers colors used were: B95, B93, B91; G99, G94, G24; YG67, YG17, YG03, YG97, YG95, YG93. I used Carnation Pink Nuvo Crystal Drops for the berries on the green sprigs. For the stamen in the center of the flowers I used a white Uniball Gel Pen.

I die cut a rectangle of the same white cardstock using the largest Winnie and Walter Audrey Essentials Rectangle Die. Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8″ smaller and adhered to the back of the rectangle.

After the berries were dry I arranged the flowers, leaves, and sprigs the way I liked them and used Press ‘n Seal to keep them together. This allows you to move them around on the card to see where to place the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment  using Hero Hues India Ink Black. Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive was used to glue down the leaves and sprigs, holding it in place for a few moments to allow it to set. I carefully removed the flowers and added 3M 1/2″ foam tape to the back, removed the backing, and carefully turned of the Press ‘n Seal to adhere them where I desired.
