Two-Tone Flora, Artistically Inked, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello there! Today I have another card using the "Two-Tone Flora" bundle. It was still sitting out.  Can you believe that?  LOL I never put anything away right away! I wait until I have about a 10" x 10" space to work at and then I start putting stuff back! With that said, let me tell you how I made my card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

I cut a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Basic White card stock for the front. I die cut it using the large floral die from the "Two-Tone Flora" bundle. This time I made sure I moved the die so it was equal on both sides and it looked a lot better than yesterday's.  Live and learn, right?  And then pass on what you learned!! I glued this in place using Tombow mono glue. I used a sponge and sponged it on the back. I set it on a piece of waxed paper because I'm too lazy to clean my silicone mat after. It's just easier to toss the waxed paper and the small piece of sponge.

After setting the die cut background in place, I stamped four flowers from the "Two-Tone Flora" bundle using Poppy Parade ink for the color base and Merry Merlot for the details.  I die cut them with the matching die. 

Next I stamped the leaves using Soft Succulent ink and I die cut them using the matching die. 

The pieces were glued in place.

The words are from the "Artistically Inked" set and were stamped using black Memento ink. I die cut them using the second smallest die in the "Rectangle Stitched" die set. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place. And the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I really like the looks of the Poppy Parade ink with the Merry Merlot on top. I did set the flowers up in my Stamparatus so I could stamp them all quickly and easily.  The little tools in life that simplify things and make things quicker too!

I do thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,
