Silhouette Sunday - Floral Bouquet

For today's Silhouette Sunday I am featuring a birthday card that I made for my grandmother's birthday.

The card is 4"x9" and made from white card stock.  I cut a piece of dark pink card stock at 3 7/8"x8 7/8" and a piece of white card stock at 3 3/4"x8 3/4."  I embossed the white piece with a Cuttlebug embossing folder called "Sweet as Honey."

The floral bouquet is the cut file I used on my Silhouette Cameo.  It is called "triple flower flourish" and is by Jennifer Wambach (#42107).  I cut it at 3 1/4."  I also added some tropical punch Stickles to the pink dots at the center of the flowers.

The sentiment was also created on my Silhouette Cameo.  I typed out "happy birthday" using the Curlz MT font on my computer.  I then sized a banner to fit around it.  I printed out the font on my printer, then ran it through the Cameo to cu the banner.  I adhered it to the card with a pop-dot in the center for some dimension.  I also curled up the ends of the banner.

This was a pretty intricate cut with the veins of the leaves and the fern-like pieces, but I think it turned out beautifully.  I know my grandmother will love it!  Enjoy!
