Garden Treasures Birthday Wishes

I recently purchased Altenew’s Garden Treasures.  I love the flowers in this stamp set and they make beautiful cards.

For this card the layered flowers were stamped with Altenew Inks (colors listed below) and then die cut with the matching dies, which makes card making so much easier.

A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  This is my favorite cardstock for cardbases.  A rectangle was cut from Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock using a My Favorite Things Wonky Rectangle and adhered directly to the cardbase with Be Creative Tape.  If I am not using foam behind a focal image I use the Be Creative Tape because it will not show as sometimes you can see the lines of liquid glue with a thinner cardstock.

The die cut flowers were arrange the way I liked them and then picked up with Glad Press ‘n Seal, which makes keeping them as arranged so easy to adhere to the focal image rectangle.  Before gluing the flowers in place the sentiment from Ranger’s Letter It Birthday and Winnie & Walter the Big, The Bold and Party were stamped with Hero Hues India Ink Black.

The leaves and smaller flowers were adhered to the focal image rectangle with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  3M 1/2″ Foam Tape was added to the back of the pink and blue flowers and the card was done.
