#938 – Happy Birthday

Hello and welcome! Today I have a card which I had made in hurry for my sister’s birthday. My parents, who usually bought a birthday card for her couldn’t get one this time – and I had to make one for her in a hurry… sigh…if only I had the forethought of making one sooner. Now, it isn’t that the card doesn’t look nice, but that it does fall short of what I would have liked to make if I had enough time. So, sorry sis.. you’ll get a better one next time! 😀

So, anyway, coming to the card –

Sorry for the lack in quality of the photo, its not the best weather for clicking photos today..

So, I started with stamping the flowers and leaves, two sets of Simon Says Stamp stamps, More Spring Flowers and Even More Spring Flowers, on the cardstock. I wasn’t going for very detailed coloring, so I stamped them in VersaFine Onyx black ink, and colored them in Zig brush markers. I then fussy cut them all out.

For the background, I used Altenew Beautiful Bergenia embossing folder on cream cardstock, and then swiped Altenew Antique Gold ink on top. I then adhered this on a white card base. Arranging the floral and leafy images on top in layers, I thought it might be better to choose the sentiment too, since I wanted it to cover a little bit of the card so I could tuck my florals underneath.

I chose a sentiment from Clearly Besotted Scrumptious Script and heat embossed it twice in gold, to achieve some dimension, and then cut out the sentiment. I also added a bit of gold embossing dots to the centers of the main flowers, since I wasn’t going to add any more extra sparkle on them. 😀

I then adhered all the pieces together, using a couple of scrap cardstock strips to add dimension to the sentiment piece. Finally, I also added a few off white half-pearls to add some embellishing.

And that finished my card. I’m also joining these challenges –

  1. Doesn’t look like a hurried job Ashwini ! I loved the pairing of embossed bg of cream and gold with colored flowers.

  2. It’s beautiful and must have taken a while because you fussy cut all those flowers. That on it’s own would have taken me ages. I love the embossed background with the gold highlights. Your sister will love it xx

    • Critical, only because its not a watercolored card, sis! Otherwise, I would have been happy!! 😀 But I am definitely glad you still like it! ❤

  3. Those embossing folders are AMAZING aren’t they. Love everything about your card and I’m sure your sister will love it. So glad you joined us in our celebration month at AAA Birthday.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! Love everything about your card. Thanks for playing at AAA Birthday, hope to see you join in with future challenges too. Stay safe and keep crafting!
