We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Everyone is trying to get back to normal after a long weekend off. I realized that I have a lot of birthdays coming up and my stash was getting empty. I saw a few cute cards on Pinterest that I decided to make. This first one was using one of my favorite Su stamp sets - Botanical Blooms. I love this set!
Stamps - Botanical Gardens, Perfect Pairing
Ink - Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive
Paper - Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Basic Black
Accessories - Botanical Garden Framelits, Punches, Basket Weave Embossing Folder
Embellishments - Ribbon, Wink of Stella - clear
I think this card would look so neat using any other color as well. What I did was stamp first on my layer and then run it through the embossing folder. It gave such a great affect. I didn't have any Watermelon Wonder ribbon so I colored my white ribbon with the ink.
For one of my cards, I stamped my birthday greeting inside. I left the other blank as I think you could use it for other occasions with the "thinking of you" on the front.
I used the Wink of Stella on the flower petals and I really liked how they turned out. Hope you enjoy this card as much as I do.
Thanks for stopping by,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
