Sweet Pea Stitched Felt Flowers Birthday Card

Now I know I saw this layout somewhere but I can't remember. I guess it's all in what you do with it that is important too!

I used Very Vanilla card stock as my base. I ran it through the "Elegant Bouquet" embossing folder. Then I added a piece of Melon Mambo card stock. It measured 2-7/8" x 3-7/8". I cut a scrap piece of paper from the "Cottage Wall" decorative papers pack and a piece of Whisper White. They were both cut 3-7/8" wide. The length is 2-3/4" before it was punched with the "Scallop Trim Border Punch".

I stamped the Happy Birthday from the "Well Scripted" set. Then I taped the white on top of the "Cottage Wall" scrap. I wrapped a piece of Melon Mambo Polka Dot ribbon around it and taped it to the back to secure it. I was thinking of adding a bow but I knew this one had to go through the mail and it would cost 20 cents more to mail it. I know 20 cents isn't much but when you send out cards all the time it adds up. But the card did need something more than just the strip of ribbon. SO I got out my "Sweet Pea" stitched felt flowers. I just LOVE those things. I'm on my second package already! I used one of the larger flowers. I had a lot of them and it's obvious that I didn't use them much so I thought I would work it into this card. It was easy enough to do since the space it was going in was pretty large. I added a felt leaves and put them on the card with glue dots. I wanted something sticky that would hold and those things seem to be the best for it. And surprisingly so that is all there was to making this card.

This card can be used for other occasions too. Like a Thank You cards, Thinking of You card, Mother's Day and Get well.

Now to get it addressed and ready to be mailed. Oh and get this, I will actually be on time with sending this card out! Shocker, huh? LOL

If you're looking for a quick and sweet birthday card, this is the way to go!

Thank you for visiting today,

love the card. It looks like a pretty quick card especially since you used the sweet pea felt flower. I love mine. I am making a serious dent in my first package and am thinking about getting another one SOON so that I don't run out in the middle of a project. Thanks for sharing your cute card.
