SCRIBBLE FLOWERS HAPPY BIRTHDAY

I created a couple of cards with the same format using my Cameo Silhouette to cut outlines of My Favorite Things Scribble Flowers and stamped the flowers and leaves with Memento London Fog Ink.  I then used my Copic Markers to color them.  The colors used are listed below.  Next I ran some Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock through the Big Shot with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder and cut it down to be 2 ¾” x 5 ½.  I added some black Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock just wider than the dry embossed panel and glued them together using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.

00266For the sentiment I prepared some leftover Gina K. Designs 120# Black Cardstock with an anti-static pad and stamped the sentiment from My Favorite Things Big Birthday Sentiments in VersaMark Ink.  I then sprinkled on some Recollection Snow Embossing Powder and heat set it with my Marvy Embossing Tool.  I then cut it to be just larger than the sentiment with a fishtail on the left side.

I laid out the flowers and leaves, glued one directly to the panel and added dimension with 3M ½” foam tape for the other two flowers.  White pearls from my stash were added to the center of the flowers.  I added foam tape to the back of the sentiment banner and placed it at the bottom of the panel.  I added some Darice White Adhesive Fun Foam to the back of the panel, cutting it to be slightly smaller so it wouldn’t show and adhered it to a cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and the card was done.

For the second card I colored the flowers with yellow and blue Copic Markers and embossed the white panel with the Cuttlebug Oxford Embossing Folder.  I added some blue cardstock from my stash and adhered it to the panel using Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  I cut a small strip of the same blue cardstock for the sentiment, which is from Fiskars Birthday Bash.  All three flowers have 3M ½” Foam Tape on the back to create dimension.  I added Darice Adhesive Fun Foam to the back of the panel, but when I went to place it on the card, it needed something to tie in the yellow of the flowers.  I decided to add another panel of yellow, slightly wider than the blue, which I glued directly to a top folding cardbase made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, cut to 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5”.  This pulled both of the colors of the flowers into the design and I like it better.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers for some shine, but it was still missing something, so I pulled some Recollections Enamel Dots from my stash and added blue dots to the center of the yellow flowers and yellow to the center of the blue and the card was done.
