A Swirly Bird Birthday Card

I found this fun card by Nadine at "Stempelmami".  I thought it was such a pretty card that I had to make one for myself! 

To make this card I used a folded half sheet of Whisper White.  I cut my Whisper White focal piece 3-1/2" x 4-1/2".  I cut the Sweet Sugarplum layer 3-2/4" x 4-3/4".  I set the focal piece on top of the folded piece and stamped the little flowers using Sweet Sugarplum ink and the rose looking flower was stamped in Daffodil Delight (do that one first). I stamped over the edge as you can see on the right side of the layers.  It's kind of like that "Triple Stamping" technique, but more like double!!

I cut the flowers using Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Flirty Flamingo card stock.  The leaves were stamped using Pear Pizzazz ink stamped off once so the veins stamped normally would show better.  Then they were cut with the "Swirly Scribbles" framelits.  I did sponge the edges of the leaves so you couldn't see the white and you can't see that they weren't even on each side!!

The words are from the May 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I was looking in my stamp sets for words that were long like that.  These two words are separate so I put them together on the clear block and stamped them both at the same time.

It was a very fun card to make.  It's so colorful and cheery looking.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
