Happy Birthday Bouquet

When I am stamping floral images I usually have leftover that I keep in a little box under my desk.  My granddaughter was over and using some of them and I decided to pull some of them out and use them as well.  It has a lot of different flowers from Simon Says Stamp Look for the Miracles, Gina K. Designs Peony wishes, and WPlus9 Freehand Florals.  I used some Copic Markers (listed below) to add shading and some Doodlebug Sprinkles for the center of the larger flowers and to scatter around the focal image.

I die cut a rectangle using the Winnie and Walter Audrey Essentials Die.  I love the scalloped edge that it gives.  To add focal interest I ran it through the Big Shot with a new Cuttlebug Embossing Folder entitled Charles.  I think the dotted chevron is very pretty.

I arranged the flowers the way I liked them and pulled out some Press and Seal to hold them all together while I added Tombo Mono Multi Glue to the back.  This is such an effective way to get your flower arrangement in place.  3M ½” Foam Tape was added to the blue flower for a little dimension.

The sentiment is from Gina K. Designs Peony Wishes and was stamped on Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with Gina K. Designs Fine Detail White Embossing Powder.  The ends were cut into fishtails and 3M ½” Foam Tape was cut in half and applied to the back.

A side folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut just smaller than the scalloped rectangle and then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
