Happy Tuesday!!! Happy 4th of July!!! Today I have a fabulous technique to share with you. This golden happy birthday with roses all over is just stunning! You know how I love bling with flowers and pink!!! Amazing!
Isn’t this card just stunning with that glimmer wording?? I love it! It was fairly simple to create as well!!
I started with a Sweet Sugarplum card base. Next I layered on a piece of Berry Burst (4″ x 5-1/4″) with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Since this card didn’t have a lot of dimension, I thought I would pop up a layer! Also, Berry Burst and Sweet Sugarplum look amazing together! Finally for the top layer, I used a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4″ x 5″. The first step is to die cut the greeting in Gold Glimmer Paper with the Happy Birthday Framelit. I added the greeting to the card with a Sponge and Multi Purpose Liquid Glue but the Fine Tip Glue Pen works too!
Now for the beautiful roses, I used the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set (Bundle & Save 10%)! For the bigger rose, I used Sweet Sugarplum Ink and stamped off once for the solid image. I used full strength ink for the outline image. For the smaller rose, I used Berry Burst and the same technique! Be sure to fall off the cardstock and stamp all around so it looks like the pattern is continuous. I used Old Olive Ink for the leaves. The mini leaves, I stamped twice before going back to the ink to get that variation in color. Once I was done with the flowers, I added this to the card base!
So I thought I would share with you the first card I made which I stamped all over the background first. Then I placed the greeting on top and it just didn’t POP like I wanted. I tried again by adding the greeting first and stamping around the greeting and it worked out so much better! Just thought I would share my boo boo card as well so you could see it doesn’t always come out right the first time but we keep on trying! 🙂
