I'm truly going to miss the sweet blooms and pretty sentiments from the Happy Birthday, Gorgeous stamp set when it retires on June 3. I used several soon-to-retire items on this card and one brand new item…can you spot it?
I created this delightful pair of cards and we'll be creating one of them at my "Last Thursdays" card class on May 30. RSVP here.
Background Basics—I embossed a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock with the retiring Striped Scallops embossing folder, then mounted it with Tear & Tape Adhesive onto a 4-1/4" x 11" vertically-folded Coastal Cabana card base.
Layered Flower—Next, I adhered a 4" x 1-1/2" piece of the retiring How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper along the bottom. I wrapped some retiring Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8" Reversible Ribbon around the card front and tied it into a double-knot faux-bow.
- Stamp the branch twice in Highland Heather ink.
- Stamp the larger flower three in retiring Berry Burst ink.
- Stamp the smaller flower in Coastal Cabana 3-5 times.
- Stamp the curly line in Granny Apple Green to fill in the blank spaces.
I popped the sentiment label onto the tag with Dimensionals, then popped the tag up with Dimensionals onto the card front. I had a little bit of extra space at the bottom of the tag, so I added the "to you" sentiment in Memento Black.
Finishing Touches—I tied a Silver Baker's Twine Bow and attached it at the top of the tag with a "pinched" Glue Dot. Then, I finished by adding a trio of Rhinestone Jewels floating around the flowers.
Two Cool—My second version starts with a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock embossed with the retiring Petal Burst embossing folder. I added the same DSP to the bottom and tied some Whisper White Metallic-Edge Ribbon around the card front this time.
