Colorful Birthday

I finished a card! I am impressed with myself, there has been a lot of doctoring for my mom and Virtual learning for my son. So when I can grab a few minutes to work on a card I do. It took me two days to work on this card, but I finished it and am very pleased with it.

This card was made using super fun DSP and some very bright colors. Hopefully it makes you feel happy. It is a standard Z fold card base using Mango Melody. I layered it with Terracotta tile CS, Ice Cream Corner DSP, Bumblebee CS and Very Vanilla CS.

My flowers were stamped using the Brushed Blooms stamp sent and die cut with the coordinating dies! I stamped them in Terracotta tile and Bumblebee using the stamp off Technique to give them a softer look layered on the brighter colors. I heat embossed my Happy Birthday sentiment from the sale a-bration stamp set Approaching Perfection, which you can get free with a $50.00 purchase.

For the inside of my card I used the sentiment from Approaching Perfection and framed it with the large rectangle Stamp from the Swirly Frames Stamp set! Added a die cut rose from Brushed Blooms and done.

Below you will find my card cut list and products used. Have a questions, don’t hesitate to ask, I am here.
