A Rose Wonder and Botanical Blossoms Birthday Card

Hello!  Glad to have you back.  Today I want to share a fun and super easy card with you.  I found a card made by LeAnne Pugliese at Wee Inklings.  I'm sorry but I can't find her exact card.  Mine is very similar to hers.  Where I have the flower, she had a layered stamped bird and I used different words than she did.  But the layout is the same.  It was the layout that really got my attention.  

To make this card I took a half sheet of Whisper White card stock that was cut at 4-1/4" x 11".  I folded it in half.  Then I took a piece of the "Love Blooms" decorative paper from the 2016 Occasions catalog.  I set it across the bottom left corner and taped it in place. I trimmed any excess with a scissors. Then I took a strip of another design in that same pack and I made sure I had a factory cut edge and I kind of cut the rest of the piece at an angle.  I taped it in place and I had to trim up the three edges.  And that was it.  Now it was ready to embellish and stamp.  First I stamped.  I wasn't going to waste my time with the embellishment if I messed up on the words.  One thing I often do in cases like this is, I will use removable tape on the decorative paper, just in case I mess up. Yup, I've been known to really mess up a card!!!  I don't share everything with you on here!!!  Those types you would end up rolling your eyes at me. So I spare you from getting your eyes lodged in the back of your head!  LOL

Once I got the words on I took out the "Botanical Builders" framelits and cut my pieces.  I used Whisper White, Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.  I used a Candy Dot in the center of the flower.  I set the flower in place using a Dimensional.  And that was it.  Easy Peasy and super quick!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
