I have another birthday card today. This one is for my mother-in-law. Her birthday is coming up soon, and when I asked my husband what her card should look like or have on it, he just said, "flowers." So, this is what I came up with:
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." I used ivory cardstock for the card base, then cut some coral cardstock at 5 1/4"x4" and some mint green cardstock at 5 1/8"x3 7/8." I ran the mint green cardstock through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I cut a strip of floral cardstock at 4 1/4"x1 1/2," some more mint green cardstock at 4 1/4"x1 5/8," and some coral cardstock at 4 1/4"x1 3/4." I adhered those three stips together and adhered that to the left side of the card. I used Bloom to cut my floral frame. It is cut at 3." I placed some ivory cardstock behind the opening in the frame, then stamped it with the sentiment. I used pop-dots to adhere the leaves and flowers to the frame and then used some more pop-dots to adhere the frame to the card. I finished off the card with some large yellow gems for the centers of the flowers, because it just had to have a little bling! Simple, but quite pretty. Enjoy!
I made this for the challenge at The Friday Mashup, which is to follow the sketch and use some bling.
