My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers Birthday Card

When I cut the woodgrain banner rectangle from the Echo Park Lori White The Story of Fall it had a cute flower corner that was left behind.  It was just a pretty, colorful paper that I just had to use it.

So, I went through my flower dies and pulled out the My Favorite Things Stitched Flowers die.  I then went through my scraps of solid colored cardstock and found some that matched the colors on the patterned paper.  I found some yellow cardstock and cut it 1/8” larger than the woodgrain paper and adhered to the two together using Kokuyo Dotliner Adhesive.  I then arranged the flower around the corner left behind in the patterned paper and adhered them to the panel using Ranger Multi Medium Matte and 3M ½” Foam Tape.

For a sentiment I pulled out the Mama Elephant Birthday Script Die and cut it once from the red cardstock and twice more from yellow cardstock and adhered them together using Elmer’s Glue Craft Adhesive Spray.  It was then glued to the open yellow rectangle of the card front.  The word “HAPPY” is from Hero Arts Birthday Messages and was stamped on a scrap of red cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossing using Gina K. Designs Detailed White Embossing Powder.  A fishtail was added to the right and then it was adhered just above the “birthday” die cut with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.

I felt like the white on the card was too stark and so I use Copic Marker E50 Egg Shell to color everything that was white on the card.

A rectangle of Darice Sticky Back Foam was cut 1/8” smaller than the focal image and adhered to the back.  A side folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# Ivory Cardstock and the focal image was adhered with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
