Beautiful Bouquet, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card

While looking on Pinterest, I found a card that caught my eye.  I was intrigued by the corrugated piece.  I had not purchased the "Corrugated" embossing folder but I remembered I had a piece of corrugated card stock left over in my April Paper Pumpkin kit and I made it work.  You can see the original card here. I did change it some but the basics of it is there!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  On top of that is a 2-5/8" x almost 4" rectangle stitched die cut.  

I die cut the corrugated circle was cut using the 2-1/8" circle die.  I also cut another circle using Whisper White card stock.  I cut the corrugated circle in half and taped it to the bottom of the Whisper White circle.  

Then I went on a search for a set I had that contained small enough flowers to look good in the space I had to work with.  I used the "Beautiful Boutique" set. I stamped the flowers using Berry Burst ink. I die cut them along with the leaves from the same set which I had stamped using Old Olive ink.

The words are from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using black Memento ink.  I had set the corrugated circle on the rectangle so I could eye where the words would be stamped.  Once the words were stamped, I was ready to assemble.

I added a ribbon to the stitched rectangle.  I cut a 3-3/4" piece and taped the ends to the back of the rectangle.  I slipped the end of the ribbon (still on the spool) under the taped ribbon and tied a knot and then I cut the ribbon.  Less waste doing it that way.

I added Dimensionals to the stitched rectangle and set it in place on top of the card base.

I added a small Dimensional to each flower and set them in place on the circles.  I glued the leaves in place, tape just wouldn't work, I had trouble slipping them in.  I set the circle in place using Dimenisonals and the card was done!  I like this layout.  This was a fun card to make and I do like how it turned out.

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
