Dandelion Wishes, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card

Today I thought I would finally get that birthday card that I needed last month.  Nothing like dragging my feet.  Though I have been busy with craft fairs and orders from my web store, plus having a nasty cold.  And then there's always the "I didn't need it right away" thing too!! LOL  I would love to just make the cards I need for each month and have them ready.  But I would probably lose them!  I know me WAY too well!!!! LOL

This was a very fun card to make and I love mixing the Highland Heather with the Basic Gray.  

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Gray card stock.  This card opens at the bottom.  I textured the front using the "Tufted" embossing folder.  This is such a fun folder to play with and it's got such nice deep lines.  I love using it for wedding cards!

I stamped the dandelion image from the "Dandelion Wishes" stamp set on Whisper White card stock.  The person that is getting this card loves the images in that set.  I used Basic Gray ink to stamp it.  I added some Wink of Stella to the ends of the seeds but it doesn't show in the photo.  What would also look nice would be a clear Faceted Gem to the center. I may just add that once I'm done posting.  It would give the dandelion a little more depth than just the Wink of Stella.  I trimmed the Whisper  White card stock to 4" x 2-3/4". 

I cut a piece of Highland Heather 4-1/8" x 2-7/8". Before I taped it to the Whisper White piece, I  die cut the scalloped oval.  I actually remembered to do that this time. I usually do remember it but only after I taped the layers together!!!

The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using Basic Gray ink on Whisper White card stock.  I die cut it with an oval die and taped it to the scalloped oval. 

I set the dandelion panel in place using Dimensionals and I taped the top part of the oval layers to the bottom corner of the focal image. I added a couple of Dimensionals, one to the bottom and one to the right, just for balance.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White to the inside and the card was done.

I want to make some wedding and anniversary cards using the "Tufted" embossing folder.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
