Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Wishing You Well, Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper, Birthday Card

Now in real life the colors blend well together. On here the Mint Macron focal image looks SO out of place.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that I cut 3/4" x 5-1/4" strips of "Frosted Floral" Specialty Designer Series Paper (SDSP).  This paper has a very pretty shimmer to it, to the entire piece, not just special images.  

I taped the strips to the left, leaving about 1/8" space between them. The easiest way to keep those strips about 1/8" and equal is to use round toothpicks between the strips. 

I stamped the image from the "Wishing You Well" stamp set and Mint Macaron ink.  I die cut it with the oval die and I die cut a Tranquil Tide scalloped oval at the same time.  I taped those two layers together.  I set them in place over the strips using Dimensionals. 

I stamped the words from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using black Memento ink.  I punched it out using the "Classic Label" punch. I also punched out 2 using Tranquil Tide card stock to layer behind the word piece.  I taped those layers together and I set them in place on the oval using Dimensionals.

This is a very simple card to make and a fun design to play with.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
