HELLO BIRTHDAY GIRL

This card uses flowers and leaves from Simon Says Stamp Look for the Miracles stamp set.  Since there aren’t matching dies for this set I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut some outline images and then stamped them with Altenew Inks listed below.  I used the Sizzix Big Shot to die cut a rectangle from Winnie & Walter Audrey Essentials Pierced Scalloped Rectangles from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock.  I arranged the leaves and flowers the way I liked them and then used Tombo Mono Multi Glue for the leaves and small flower, gluing them directly to the rectangle.  The lighter pink flowers were adhered using 3M ½” Foam Tape, and the blue flower has a double thickness foam tape for added dimension.

00268The Hero Arts Hello sentiment was cut once from Gold Mirror Cardstock and three more times with leftover white cardstock.  To glue them together I used some Elmer’s Spray Adhesive.  Before adhering it to the panel I laid it out to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment “birthday girl” from Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons.  Since I had gone to so much work, I but the panel in my MISTI and stamped it with Hero Hues Black ink.  I glued the “hello” die with some Ranger Multi Medium Mat and then glued the panel directly to a side folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.

I liked the card, but it needed a little something more, so I pulled out my new Nuvo Crystal Drops Pale Gold and added small dots to the center of the flowers and the card was done.
