A Flower Shop Birthday

Today my card is cased (sort of) from Amy at "Amy's Paper Crafts." I say "sort of" because I made a few subtle changes.  I didn't have the same scallop dies or the same wording or the same decorative paper.  But the layout is the same. It looks a lot like Amy's card but in a different color scheme.  I did change the flowers too.  She had made only one flower using this image and the other two were done using two of the other flowers in the set.  It was a fun card to make though!!!

I started out with a half sheet of white folded in half.  Then a piece of the in color decorative paper cut at 4" x 5-1/4".  The white strip is cut at 5-1/4" x 1-7/8".  The black strip was a bit trickier.  I used the Edgelits Adorning Accents die.  I cut one side and then I set the white piece on top and lined up the die to match the already cut side.  I set in place on my cardstock using a couple of sticky notes.  I taped the black piece to the white and then added the ribbon.  I cut my ribbon and taped the ends to the backside.  Then I tied a bow to the front.  I prefer to do that on my cards because it's not only easier but I can always get my bow in the exact spot where I want it!  

I stamped the words on, they are from the "Simply Sketched" set and then I taped the decorative paper to the front of the card.  I did mark the center of the white piece so I knew where to put the yellow flower and then I just eyed it for the other two flowers.  I used the Boho Flower punch to get the pieces for the centers of the flowers and lastly I added a large pearl to the center of each flower.  Oh and the flowers were set in place using Dimensionals.  As simple as that.  It sounds like a lot of stuff but it went together very quickly. Hmm, could that be because the flowers are punched out and not cut by hand???  Ya gotta LOVE that!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
