WL2C – A Flower Card to Say Happy Birthday!!

Hello! Happy Sunday! Hope things are going ok!

Time for a new monthly challenge at WE LOVE 2 CREATE which is always ‘Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes’ and we are sponsored by the awesome POLKADOODLES!! Our winner will receive a fabulous prize so check out the blog for details.

I have created a birthday card for my sister-in-law who had a landmark birthday this week and have a tutorial to share too.

I used a piece of paper from the BELLA FLEUR pad and after covering it with clear gesso added holographic texture paste through the TIMELESS BUTTERFLIES stencil.

Once dry I added details using the ADORABLE FLORABLE stamp set then cut it out using a shaped die.

I then stamped and embossed the images from EVERY WISH IN THE WORLD in silver and coloured with brush markers. 

I cut the DELICATE DAISY CORNER die from silver card and cut it up to make flourishes.

Now just in case my sister-in-law had forgotten how old she would be (!!) I added a ‘60’ to the card using the FUNKY ALPHABET stamp set, however to keep it ‘discrete’ I used shrink plastic….

…it’s ever so diddy!

Then it was just a case of gluing everything down and there we go.
