Flower Garden Embossing Folder Birthday Card

Talk about a SUPER easy, fun and quick card!!!

I ordered the new "Flower Garden" Embossing folder that will be available on May 1st in the new spring mini catalog.  The image is actually another inch or so longer but I had to cut some off for the orientation of my card.

I embossed it and then found a piece of decorative paper that I liked, which happened to be from the "Paisley Petals" pack.  

The base of my card is a half sheet of Old Olive folded in half.  On top of that is a piece of Cherry Cobbler cut 4-1/8" x 5-3/8".  On top of that is the white embossed layer which was cut 4" x 5-1/4".  

The rectangle layer was cut 2-1/4" x 3-1/2" to fit the piece of decorative paper that I had cut from a previous project.  That piece measured 2-1/8" x 3-3/".  I tied a piece of Old Olive grosgrain ribbon around it and taped it in place on top of the card.  

Next I punched out the scalloped circle using Old Olive card stock.  Then on top of that I punched out a 1-3/8" circle of Cherry Cobbler and the 1-1/4" "Happy Birthday" was from my stash of words I had cut out a while back.  I actually think I am caught up on birthday cards for the month!!! Whoo hoo!!!

So if you need a quick, easy and fun card, this is the way to go!!  

Thank you for indulging me today!!! LOL
