Supplies

  • 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" light olive cardstock
  • 4 1/4" x 2" brown cardstock
  • 4 1/4" x 1 1/8" textured green cardstock from DCWV Christmas Multi-Stack
  • 2 1/2" x 3 1/4" textured white cardstock from DCWV Christmas Multi-Stack
  • pink cardstock to die cut
  • TSUKINEKO Brilliance Coffee Bean Ink
  • Studio G white stamp Pad
  • "Happy Birth Day!" Sizzix Die
  • Cuttlebug Build A Flower Cut and Embossing Set
  • The {Stamps} of Life Back2Basics set

Directions

  1. Die cut 4 plain petals and one large circle from pink card stock using cutting die in Cuttlebug Build A Flower Cut and Embossing Set.
  2. Emboss each of the 4 petals with a different pattern using embossing folders in Cuttlebug Build A Flower Cut and Embossing Set.
  3. Emboss the pink circle with the pattern of your choice from the embossing set.
  4. Die cut "Happy Birth Day!" from pink card stock using Sizzix die.
  5. Lightly ink the embossing using a relatively dry white ink pad. White chalk would work as well.
  6. Cut out remaining white, green and brown cardstock.
  7. Fold base in half.
  8. Mount brown at bottom of the card.
  9. Mount white at top of card. Center it horizontally and place it 1/4" below the top of the base vertically.
  10. Mount Happy Birth Day on the white. Suggestion: Use a fine tip liquid glue like Scrappy Glue to do this.
  11. Mount green so it covers the white and brown but not the Happy Birth Day.
  12. Mount the two outer most pink petals. Use the top corner of the brown to line them up evenly with each other.
  13. Mount the remaining two pink petals evenly in the space between the outer petals.
  14. Mount embossed pink circle over the center join point of the flower petals.
  15. Stamp dotted line from Back2Basics set on green using brown ink.
  16. Stamp flower from Back2Basics on the card in the pattern shown. Each time you stamp the flower, rotate the stamp 45 degrees so the image looks different. Randomly choosing the next stamping location instead of going linearly also helps get the look shown.
