Floral Birthday Wishes

I love a good floral card. Don’t you? There is no right or wrong way to arrange your flowers. You don’t have to worry about light sources when you shade them. They are always just easy and fun to work with. And for today’s card, I didn’t add any shading at all; I used glitter paper to add pizazz instead.

Using a combination of floral dies from Spellbinders’ December Small Die of the Month, and shadowed birthday sentiments from their October set, I die cut the flowers and words from colorful cardstock, glitter paper, and vellum (for the word shadows). I stacked them together, using Gina K Connect glue, instead of my usual PVA glue, because glitter paper can be tricky to adhere to. I know the Connect glue won’t let me down later. Then, I arranged them all onto a 2 7/8″ x 5 7/8″ cream panel, using a combination of glue and foam tape to adhere them. After popping the panel up onto a cream mini-slimline card base (3 1/4″ x 6 1/4″) with foam tape, I added a few pearls to finish the card. It fits into a kraft #7 coin envelope.

You know how much I love to color my own die cut pieces, but I really wanted to create sparkly flowers, so I used the glitter paper instead. Not only was it faster, it has more flair! What do you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’ll be back soon to show you the card I made with Spellbinders new Clear Stamp of the Month. These sets are a fun little way to treat yourself. I love getting them in the mail each month, and I never look to see what they will be ahead of time. I like the surprise!
