Happy Birthday Gorgeous Floral Collage Cards

Hi Stamping Friends!

If you follow my blog, you already know how much I'm loving the single Happy Birthday Thinlit die, but I'm also finding the coordinating Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set very exciting to use on projects. I think you're going to fall in love with this bundle, too! 

Today, I'm sharing another pair of cards from my new Happy Birthday Gorgeous class-to-go kit!  It's my Stamp-of-the-Month, so you'll receive everything you need to create the projects all in one convenient kit—just add ink and adhesives!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous Floral Collage Cards!

The dainty little flowers in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set are truly delightful!  They work beautifully together to create a pretty floral collage focal point!

Background Basics—I started this card with a 5" x 3-3/4" Lemon Lime Twist foundation that's embossed with the new Pinewood Planks Dynamic Texture Impressions Folder!  OOOhhh!  I LOVE this new folder!  It makes a fabulous background, especially for flowers and other nature-oriented images.  I was so sad when the Woodgrain Folder was just retired, but like this one SO MUCH BETTER!  Really, really pretty!

I matted the embossed layer onto a piece of 5-1/8" x 3-7/8" Basic Black, then added a 5" x 1" strip of the fun new Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Paper in coordinating Lemon Lime Twist.  Next, I tied some White Baker's Twine around the layer, tying it in a knot that I positioned to be hidden under the focal point.  All of the layers are mounted onto a Whisper White card base.

Floral Foundation—I die-cut a circle shape from Whisper White card stock using the Stitched Shapes Framelits, then stamped it with Happy Birthday Gorgeous leaves in Lemon Lime Twist and 5-petal flowers in Peekaboo Peach.  That layer is popped up with Dimensionals.

Sweet Sentiment—I fishtailed the ends of a 3-1/4" x 1/2" strip of Basic Black and adhered that with SNAIL over the floral background.  Then, I stamped the label image in Lemon Lime Twist and the sentiment in Memento Black onto Whisper White.  It's punched with the Classic Label Punch and popped up with more Dimensionals. 

Flowers—I stamped the flower outline images in Berry Burst onto Whisper White, then stamped again over the top with the solid flower image in Flirty Flamingo stamped-off once.  The Pool Party outline is stamped over with the same color stamped off once.  The flowers are hand-cut with super-sharp Paper Snips, then popped up with more Dimensionals.

Finishing Touches—I added Pearl Jewels to each flower centers, then tied a bow in White Baker's Twine and attached it with a Glue Dot. So sweet!

Two Cool—The second card is the identical design with Berry Burst as the main color.

The Foil Frenzy DSP is changed to Berry Burst.

The sentiment label is also Berry Bust and I swapped out one of the Berry flowers for another Pool Party one.
