Very Floral Birthday Card

Hello Bloggers,

Yet another extremely colorful birthday card today :) Lots of flowers!

The big flower is The Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners Country Cottage Metal Die - Classic Carnations, then there is a whole bunch of roll-ups _and_ my new favorites - Joy!Crafts Vintage Flourishes 6003/0066 Flower 5 Leaf. I just love the roses they make!
The patterned papers I used have a touch of some glitter on the printed flowers but it is a bit tricky to catch it on camera.
The edges are shaped with the Martha Stewart Crafts - Punch Around The Page Set - Cherish. I love MS punches. They are strong enough to punch through a double layer of thick cardstock quite neatly.

Birthday Card for a Girl

Hello Bloggers,

a pinky card today, made for the birthday of my daughter's friend. I found this striped patterned paper sheet in one of my extremely pink paper pads the other day, and that's the design it ended up in. :)

Traditionally, I could not help adding a brighter spot to the general pastels, thus the fluffy orange cord. :)
The lace-looking Joy!Crafts 6002/0316 Border Edge die-cuts are layered to create more volume. The sentiment has three layers, a bit offset.
The flowers are handmade using several 5-petal punches, I used my dear Nellie Snellen Floral Punch Sets to cut and emboss the leaves.

Used:
  • Joy!Crafts 6002/0478 Doily Round
  • Joy!Crafts 6002/0368 - Rose Corner
  • Joy!Crafts 6002/0316 Border Edge
