Flowers of Beauty, Unbounded Love, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick birthday card to share with you. Please read on to see how it's made.

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" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock for the larger layer and a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Basic White card stock for the top layer. I textured that layer using the "Exposed Brick" embossing folder. I glued this piece to the larger piece and then I added the two layers to the front of the card using Dimensionals.

Next I stamped the flowers from the "Flowers of Beauty" bundle using Berry Burst for the outline and Petunia Pop for the petal colors. I colored the centers using my Daffodil Delight marker. I stamped three of them.

I stamped two sets of leaves using Old Olive ink for both the outline and the colored centers. I die cut the flowers and the leaves using the matching dies in the bundle. 

The top flower was glued down first and then the one on the left. I added some glue to the back of the leaves and slipped them under the two flowers before the glue set. The third flower was set in place using Dimensionals. 

I colored the center of the flowers with some Wink of Stella, I felt they could use some sparkle.

The words are from the "Unbounded Love" bundle and were stamped using Old Olive ink on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock. I die cut them using the die from the bundle. Then I die cut a Petunia Pop piece so I could put the two together for a fun border with the words on a white background. I used tiny bits of scotch tape to hold the pieces together. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece was set in place on the front of the card and the card was done.

I was very happy with the way the card turned out. This was not what I had in mind but I like where it ended up. And that leaves me with an idea for tomorrows card because that idea is still in my head!

Thank you SO much for taking your time to stop in and see today's birthday card,
