Birthday Flowers Card

I'm submitting this card to Simon Says Stamp's Birthday Challenge as well.  I used a stamp positioner to make sure everything went on straight as I used a set of rubber stamps for this (as opposed to clear stamps).  I stamped the shelf, then the vase, the sentiment and finally the flowers.  I coloured in the petals and used a bit of yellow glitter glue for the centres.  A quick card but I like how it looks.

Flowery Easter Card

If you celebrate Easter, I wish you a very happy one, with lots of chocolate. ;D

I started this card by carefully laying the flower die on the unmarked fold line of the card.  It pops up over the fold line when it's cut.  I then scored and folded the card base.  I coloured the stamped image using spectrum noir markers and die cut it out.  I cut a small printed panel and attached some purple ribbon to it, lacing it through the die cut frame before attaching it behind the panel.  Finally I stamped Happy Easter.

SSS Challenge's 6th Birthday.

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I've had several other time consuming projects come up and haven't had much time for card crafting.

This is a birthday card I made to celebrate Simon Says Stamps Challenge's 6th 'birthday'.  I've enjoyed entering their challenges a lot the past few years.

I stamped the two frames and the sentiment (I stamped off the 'Happy' so the words would be visible despite the overlap) and then die cut them out.  I die cut the bottom of my card base and then the patterned panel.  I added some ribbon and then layered the die cuts on top, finishing off with a punched butterfly (with some glitter pen for accent).
