Garden Blooms Birthday with Copic Colored Ribbon

This is not a card I liked enough that I would post it, except it shows that when you do not have ribbon to match a particular color you can use your alcohol markers to change the ribbon color.


This card uses a Silhouette Cameo Outline, which was stamped with the Penny Black Garden Blooms stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers.

I pulled some peachy pink cardstock from my leftover cardstock that matched one of the flowers and cut a lacy oval with the Spellbinders Lacey Ovals die.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the focal image and then adhered to the lacy oval.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was cut with a Spellbinders oval die and trimmed to be just smaller than the lacy oval.

The stamp set has the sentiment Garden Blooms on the jar label, but I wanted it to say “happy birthday” so a small rectangle was die cut with the smallest My Favorite Things Rectangle Postage Stamp and the My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings Sentiment stamp set was stamped in the center with Hero Hues Black ink and then glued over the original label with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

A rectangle was cut from a pink gingham patterned paper from the Authentique Delightful 6 x 6 Paper Pack with Simon Says Stamp Bundle of Stitched Frames and adhered to the front of a top folding cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock.  Next the lacy oval was adhered to the patterned paper with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

Originally 5/8″ white organza ribbon was used to tie a bow around the bottom of the card, but it just got lost in the pale color of the patterned paper.  All of the pink ribbon I hand on hand was pink, rather than peach, so I used Copic Marker R22 to color the ribbon to match the color of the lacy oval.  For added interest Recollections Faux Pearls White were added to the front of the oval and the card was done.
