An Irresistibly Floral Birthday Card

Being it's a holiday weekend I am figuring that not too many people will be online today.  But I still decided to post anyway!  

Today's card is from Terri's last fun Stamp-a-Stack.  What is so fun about this card is that the flowered background paper is really all white with the flowers embossed.  We took a sponge and the Mint Macaron ink and colored in the paper and it revealed the pretty flowers!! How fun is that?? What's also great about that is, you can have coordinating decorative paper for any of your colored card stocks (well, as long as you have the matching ink, that is!).  

The words are from the "Flourishing Phrases".  I think it's a "must have" set!  It's got lots of fun wording. As I'm looking at the set, I am not seeing these words in it.  I looked through the catalog and through the stamp sets that I own and I am not seeing this set.  Though I am sure I passed it up (several times) in the catalog.  So, if you know what set the words are from, please let me know so I can include them in this post for those who wish to copy this card.

First we punched the card stock with the "Scallop Tag Topper" punch and then we stamped the words.  We used the 3/8" Mint Macaron linen ribbon. (Fold it in half and insert the folded end from the front to the back!! - that was mostly written for my friend Peggy!!!).  The tag was set in place using Dimensionals.

I just saw that I have over 900 birthday cards on my blog.  Click here for a direct link to just the birthday cards only!.

This is a fun and easy card to make. I LOVE that decorative paper and how I can use any color ink I have to create fun cards with it!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
