Oh, you guessed it. I left the "Happy Birthday, Everyone" out!! It was clean and dry and waiting to go back into it's container. I had a scrap piece of black and white dotted paper from the "Neutral's" pack so I thought I would make a monochromatic card. I have not made one of those in a long time. I don't often do black and white, I tend to go red and white! But this was the paper that was sitting out so I went with it. I'm trying to clean up my workroom and pieces of scrap papers are popping up. It's nice to use them.
SO what I did here was I cut my dotted paper 1-3/4" x 4". I taped it to a piece of Whisper White that was cut 4" x 5-1/4". I set the decorative paper on the card stock so I could see where the words should go. That was the tricky part. After stamping the words I taped the paper in place. Then I taped a piece of ribbon onto the back and wrapped it around the card front and I taped it to the other side on the back. I taped that piece on a folded half sheet of Basic Black card stock.
It needed something more, so I looked in my stash of die cut flowers and I was going to use one of the larger ones that I keep using on cards but today I thought I would step out of that box and try a smaller flower. I found one and I added a center to it, which consisted of two star like pieces glued together. I pressed them in the center in the palm of my hand so they could curl up a bit and then I glued them to the center of the flower. I added a Dimensional to the back of the flower and set it in place on the card. I wanted a leaf but they were all a bit too big, so I took one of the ferny looking leaves and cut it off somewhere in the middle. Now it was the perfect length for this little flower! I used glue to set it in place. And that was it. A simple and elegant looking birthday card.
Thank you SO much for visiting today,
