Lots of Lavender, Beautiful Bouquet, 2018 Sale-a-Brations, Birthday Card

I was playing with the "Lots of Lavender" 2018 Sale-a-Bration set today.  The flowers have a stamp image that you ink up and it colors all of them at one time. I opted to color them in myself.  I was in the mood to color! You can see a sample of one that was done stamping the flower colors here, leaves, stem and bow instead of coloring them individually.  I like the original way too.  But like I said, I was in the mood to color.  

I used one of the embossing folder strips from the "Petal Pair" pack in the 2018 Occasions Catalog.  I trimmed it to 1-3/8" wide and 5-1/2" long. I embossed it on Whisper White card stock.

I stamped the flower image on a piece of Whisper White cut 2-3/8" x 4-1/4".  The Wisteria Wonder layer was cut 2-5/8" x 4-1/2". I taped the two layers together and set them in place on top of the embossed strip using Dimensionals.

The words are from the "Beautiful Boutique" set using black Memento ink on Whisper White card stock.  I die cut them with the oval die cutter and I die cut a scalloped circle for the layer. I didn't die cut from the layer behind the flower image, I had a scrap that was headed towards the recycling bin.  I added tape to the left side and Dimensional to the right side. You can't add Dimensionals all over the oval or it will sit funny on top of the focal panel.

This was a very easy and super elegant looking card to make.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
