Beautiful Friendship, Magnolia Memories Dies, Birthday Card

I'm still trying to come up with cards to make from now until I can order and get my new order.  That will feel like an eternity!!! LOL  It's sad because I have stamp sets that I have hardly used.  I guess it's time to take a hard look at them and surf the net for some inspiration or something to copy!!  Like today's card.

Today I used the "Magnolia Memories" dies to make the flower.  I die cut them from Whisper White card stock and sponged on some Daffodil Delight ink on the center of the two smaller pieces.  I glued all four pieces together and set it aside to allow the glue to set up.

I die cut the flower center  using some gold glitter card stock. I cut two of those and glued them together. I set them aside to dry too.

I cut a half-sheet of Daffodil Delight for the card base. I folded it in half.  this card opens at the bottom.  

I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White and I speckled it with the Smoky Slate marker. I flicked the pen tip on the inside edge of the cover.  It's a fun technique, I just wonder if it will ruin the tip of the marker.  It seems fine so far.

I used the "Rectangle Stitched" dies and die cut out the one that measures about 3-1/4" x 1-7/8".  I stamped the words from the "Beautiful Friendship" set using Mossy Meadow ink. I speckled this piece too.

I took a piece of Daffodil Delight ribbon and wrapped it around the front of the Whisper White speckled piece and I taped the ends on the back with scotch tape.  I set that piece in place on the card base using Dimenisonals.  

Then I taped the stitched rectangle piece in place using Dimensionals.

I added some ribbon loops where the flower will be placed. I also added two strips of ribbon at the bottom part and I trimmed them at an angle.

I glued the flower in place.  I added a large rhinestone to the center of the flower and a bunch of small ones scattered around the Whisper White piece.  

I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside and the card was done.  Now that I look at it, I think it could use some greenery. A few Mossy Meadow leaves would be a nice touch.  

I thank you SO much for visiting today,

This is a very pretty card, Wanda. I'm looking for easy, but elegant ideas for a group of women. I've gotten a lot of inspiration from your card from yesterday and today. Thanks so much. Ordering day will be here very soon. Enjoy your day!
