Share What You Love Birthday Card

Next week is my sister’s birthday. This is the card I made for her. I will admit that there is a LOT of fussy cutting, but totally worth it.

My card base and first layer is Mint Macaron. I embossed the first layer with the Lovely Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder. I stamped with Mint Macaron the leaves around the edges of where my focal point will be. I took two squares and snailed the first one down at an angle, popped up the second square with Dimensionals.

I adhered one of the new Pearlized Doilies with Tombow Liquid Glue. You don’t need a lot. In fact I just added a few drops in the center of the Doily. I die cut a couple of the floral dies from the Petals & More Thinlits in Vellum and tucked them under the second piece of Designer Paper (thus the reason I adhered that layer with Dimensionals). I stamped the Flowers in Memento Black, and colored them in with the solid stamp in Berry Burst, then cut them out. I also cut 3 of the flowers from the paper. I popped all the flowers up with Dimensionals. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous. I stamped it twice, once with Tranquil Tide and then again with Berry Burst, cut them out and popped them up with Dimensionals. Finished off with a double Linen Thread Bow and some of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls. Did you know that you can use your Bone Folder to curl the Linen Thread? I really love how this turned out. I hope my sister does too! Its so hard because she is in Ohio and I’m in California.
