Flower Embosslits Card

I thought I would play with the flower embosslit die. These dies are great because the not only cut the image out but them emboss it too.

I cut two flowers out of Pink Pirouette and one out of Pretty in Pink. I folded them in half but a bit crooked so I could get it to show more petals. Then I sponged the edges. I taped the folded flower together too.

Then I punched a 3/4" circle out of white card stock and I glued it in place over the hole of the flower. I did not like the look of the white and because I glued it instead of taping it I found it almost impossible to remove. SO I took the Barely Banana marker and colored in the white c
centers of the flower. It instantly took the "blah" out of the flowers!!!

For the leaves and stem part I used one of the images in the Stampin' Up! "Flower Fancy" set. I just taped off the flower and inked the image using Garden Green. I stamped the image on a piece of white card stock, colored the leaves in and then sponged the edges. Then I added a layer of Pretty in Pink behind it. I then taped the flowers in place.

I had cut a piece of white card stock to layer on top of my Pretty in Pink base of the card. I sponged the edges and set it on top of the Pretty in Pink. As I was looking at it I thought it too had a blah look to it so I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Dotted Swiss folder. It really did add a lot to the background.

I had the Happy Birthday printed on the computer a while back. I had printed out a full piece of card stock with them. I still have 10 or so left and I probably have 10 or so birthday's left till the end of the year too!!

I punched the words out with the 1-1/4" circle punch. The layer behind it is a 1-3/8" circle using Pirouette Pink and the scalloped layer was pushed using Pretty in Pink card stock. I taped the layers together and set it in place on the card.

I still wasn't liking the looks of the card so I took my white gel pen and added some dots to the flowers. I liked it. And As long as I had my pen out I went ahead and added some dots to the scallop. It just seemed to finish off the card!!! It is now ready to write in and send off to that special birthday gal!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
