Flower Bouquet Cutout Happy Birthday

I recently purchased the In Out Daisy Bouquet die from Gina Marie Designs.  It makes a really pretty card.  I like the way you can cut around the flower, as well as just cut them the center of a panel.  For this card I used both the border and flower die.

I cut the bouquet from a rectangle of Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock which had been die cut with a My Favorite Things A2 Stitched Rectangle.  I then cut the bouquet an additional four time so that I could stack the flowers and add dimension to the card.

I found some pretty pink cardstock in my stash and cut a rectangle 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ so that it would cover the entire front of a top folding A2 cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  It was adhered using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive Long.  This created a beautiful background color for the flowers in the bouquet.  I inlaid the bouquet into the cutout with Ranger Multi Medium Matte and love the way it popped on the page.

For the sentiment I die cut the Lawn Fawn Birthday Border from the same pink cardstock, using only the words “happy birthday” and adhered it under the bouquet with the same liquid glue.  The secondary sentiment is from Winnie & Walter Sentimental Birthday and was stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black just below the die cut sentiment and the card was done.

A clean and simple card that was easy to create.
