You can't have too many birthday cards!

I was cleaning out my "desktop" today and came across this birthday card I made a few months ago, but I haven't had a chance to share it yet: 
Isn't it just so bright and pretty??? I love the striking contrast between the Lucky Limeade and the white... it's so "crisp."
The card base is Whisper White card stock. To create the fancy layer, dry emboss the Lucky Limeade card stock using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. Then, use the brayer to add Whisper White Craft ink gently to the raised areas. You can let that dry overnight, OR use the new Heat Tool on the low setting to dry it in a minute :}  After adhering that layer, tie the 5/8" Organza Ribbon around the card close to the fold. 
Stamp the flowers (Betsy's Blossoms stamp set) in Lucky Limeade ink and "fussy" cut them out; adhere to the card using Dimensionals. And of course the center of each flower needs a little bling ;)  Stamp the "happy birthday" sentiment (Itty Bitty Banners stamp set) in Lucky Limeade ink onto Lucky Limeade card stock, then die cut it through the Big Shot using the Bitty Banners Framelits. I adhered the banner using two "stacked" Dimensionals on each end.

Thanks for dropping by today!! Have a good one :}

Pin It!
