I started with a Daffodil Delight card base. Then, I layered on a piece of Melon Mambo measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″. For the focal point, I used a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ 5″). Using the Avant Garden Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, I stamped the flower in Daffodil Delight Ink and Melon Mambo Ink. I stamped some of them in full strength and some stamped off. This gives that variation of color and the illusion that some are up front and others in back like a bouquet or field of flowers! I did the same with the stem and leaves in Wild Wasabi Ink. For the centers of the flowers, I used Basic Black and used the stamped off look on the lighter flowers! Another great tip is to make the images fall off the paper so that it looks like the pattern continues!
Now you can add this piece to the card front on top of the Melon Mambo layer! For the greeting, I stamped Happy Birthday Gorgeous in Basic Black from the Beautiful You Stamp Set in the Occasions Mini Catalog. I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch and punched out another one in Melon Mambo. I cut the pink one in half and added a piece to the top and bottom of the greeting for that perfect layered look. Click here for a video tutorial. Next, I placed a piece of White Organza Ribbon folded in half on the back of the greeting and secured it with some Stampin’ Dimensionals and added it to the card front. I am loving this card!!!
