#750 – Birthday Roses

PE: Honorable Mention at The Paper Players challenge!!

The Paper Players - Honorable Mention

Hello! Welcome to another flower filled birthday card post!! 😀


This card was made for my sister for her birthday, given to her by my parents. I love making cards for my family, and it was making two cards for her.. 😀

I used a combination of Altenew Build a Flower: Rose and Vintage Flowers stamps. Both the stamp sets contain roses, and they went well together wonderfully. I also used the small flowers from Beautiful Day. The sentiment is from Lesia Zgharda called Happy Birthday


I stamped all the images on white cardstock and fuzzy cut them all. After arranging them, I adhered a few pieces using foam tape, and few directly on the cardbase, to give the flora and foliagee different dimensions (which is not so apparent in these images). The sentiment is stamped twice – in black and a teal color, which gives it a shadow of sorts…


I also added a few dots, like splatters, of gold glimmer using Deco Art Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint. I also used it lightly on the flowers, gold on the roses and silver on the little flowers and the leaves.

I used pattern paper to make the envelope instead of the usual white paper. I also stamped the same sentiment as the card, using teal only this time.

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –

The Paper Players #391: Tic Tac Toe Challenge (I’ve used Flowers – Birthday – Yellow)

CAS-ual Fridays challenge #198: April Showers bring May Flowers

Cupcake Inspirations challenge #445
