Birthday Blooms

I really like the rich, fall colors on this card. The designer series paper is beautiful and works well with the framelits and stamp set. Although these items have been discontinued, the card demonstrates how well the products from the past, present, and future coordinate with each other. What do you think?

I consider all my purchases from SU as investments. They continue to profit me each time I create a card. I mix the new with the discontinued items. Know that there are always new products that can be substituted for the discontinued ones. I choose to demonstrate the versatility of the products for my benefit and for those who also invested. Have fun!

First, I die cut the top edge of the DSP and adhered it to one of the Whisper White panels.

I then stamped my sentiment on the top left corner of the panel.

Next, I took the Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, and Mossy Meadow scraps and die cut the flowers, centers, and leaves. I did stamp the leaves before I die cut them. These were all then assembled and adhered to the card front using glue dots. 

I then adhered the Whisper White panel to the Basic Black panel and then onto the Whisper White card front.

I added the other Whisper White panel to the inside of the card and added a few rhinestones to the centers of the flowers.

  3. Thank you, Lisa. The flower petals are dimensional, I just didn't pull them up enough to show it on the picture. Thanks for dropping by here.
