Beautiful Flowers 2 Birthday Wishes

This is the first card I made for the Online Card Class Color Theory.  For the first day we learned about Primary Colors and how to use them.  I had recently purchased Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Flowers 2 and used this stamp set to create my first card for the class.  I love the way that red and yellow compliment each other.

I stamped the images on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers (colors are listed below).  The matching dies for these images cut really close to the edge and leave a small white border, which I really like.  I arranged the flowers into a bunch and glued them together with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  To add dimension 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the flowers.

I like the visual interest that is added to a card using an embossing folder.  I die cut a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White using a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Cricut Cuttlebug Mosaic folder.  The panel was adhered directly to a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs Base Weight Onyx Black Cardstock.  The backing was removed from the foam tape of the bouquet of flowers and they were adhered to the directly to the card front.

The sentiment is from Studio Katia’s Blooming Bunch stamp set.  It was stamped with VersaMark Ink onto a scrap of black cardstock and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Detail White Embossing Powder.  The sentiment was cut into an angled banner and foam tape was added to the back and adhered to the card front and the card was done.
