Beautiful Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone! Today, I have a floral birthday card to share. May is next month and in my family we have quite a few birthdays (including mine)…so I need all the birthday cards I can get!

I started with a large piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to fit the entire Simon Says Stamp (SSS) “Painted Flowers Wreath” stencil. I prepped my paper with some anti-static powder and used an embossing pen to outline a few areas of the flowers and leaves within the stencil. I removed the stencil, sprinkled with gold embossing powder and heat set. I then realigned the stencil and ink blended with Pink Fresh inks. The combinations were: Soft Lilac/Lavender, Coral Reef/Passion Fruit, Lemon Whip/Sunshine and Mint/Meadow.

To my A2 side folding card base, I added a strip of glitter washi tape from my stash. It just seemed to go perfectly with the pretty coral flowers. I then cut my stenciled panel down to size to fit on the card.

For the sentiment, I used the “beautiful” sentiment and cut it 2 times from white cardstock, once from Cotton Candy cardstock and half from a brushed rose gold. I stacked all the sentiments together and adhered with glue. Don’t you just love that 2 tone sentiment? I added a birthday wishes sentiment strip and added a few sequins for a final touch.
