Birthday Card

 I thought I would just show you a birthday card that I made for one of my students this week. It's her birthday on Monday, but I gave her the card on Saturday, so don't worry I'm not spoiling the surprise. Unfortunately the photos I took weren't the best, so they don't do it real justice. It turned out to be such a pretty card though and so easy to make too. 

I embossed some smooth white cardstock with the Sizzix Thank You Set #5 embossing folder, and layered it onto a soft pink Bazzill cardstock. This was then layered onto a smooth white cardstock base. The stamp is from JustRite Stampers Large Fancy Sentiments. I just looove this stamp set! 


The flowers were made using Spellbinders Blossom One and Bitty Blossoms. I used a technique that I picked up from Selma Stevenson's blog here. I just loooove these flowers and I've made them a few times now. I used white linen paper to make these. They are inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink, spritzed and folded and then rolled. I've used Creatables die LR0157 for flourishes and punched some leaves. I then added pearls to the lattice.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Have a great day!
