Ranunculus Happy Birthday

WPlus9 has such beautiful bouquet stamps and I hope they make more. This card was made with Beautiful Bouquet Ranunculus, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto an outline for the stamp cut with my Silhouette Cameo.  (Instructions for creating a cutout image can be found on the September 29, 2016, post entitled “Happy Birthday Princess with Silhouette Cameo.”)  Copic Markers used were: Y13, Y15, Y17; V12, V15, V17; RV02, RV04; G85, G43, G24; G99, G94; YG93, YG95, YG97; G85, G94; BG10.

I dies cut a rectangle from Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with the Memory Box Stitched Rectangles.  I placed the focal image on the rectangle to determine placement for the sentiment, which is from Sugar Pea Designs Celebrate All Things, stamped with Hero Hues Black.  I really like the look of dimension on my cards and so I generously added 3M 1/2″ Foam Tape to the back of the flower image and applied it to the white rectangle.

I took some purple cardstock from my stash to create a top foldling cardbase.  For added interest I ran the front of the card through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  Darice Adhesive Fun Foam was added to the back of the panel and then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

I always add details to the inside of my cards, but I don’t usually photograph them.  This time I liked the way the sentiment “celebrate” was carried over to the inside “you” from Simon Says Stamp You Matter stamp set and thought I would share.  I stamped the flower bouquet with Memento London Fog ink, and then stamped “you” with Altenew Deep Iris ink.  Next “Happy Birthday” was stamped with Hero Hues Black.

I liked the look of the card, but felt it was too much purple and so I cut down the front of the card to be 5 1/4″ x 4″ and glued it to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock.  Next I cut down the inside of the card to the same size and applied it with Tombo Stamp Runner adhesive to the inside of the card.  Making this change really let the focal image panel pop off the card and I liked it much better.
