Birthday Card Challenge - Card #2!

Well, I just realized that this post will appear before the 1st one for the challenge, so read them in whatever order, but the pink and black card was supposed to go first! Haha, I told you I'm not computer literate! :)

This card is one I actually designed last year but I didn't get to show it much, so I'm bringing it back over the next two weeks in my workshops for new clients.
It starts with a 6 x 6 piece of Certainly Celery cardstock folded into 3 x 6. I then stamped one of the circles from Pick a Petal in Certainly Celery ink for an easy background. (I sure do use that stamp set a lot, hmmm.....)
I then stamped the greeting on the bottom right corner in Basic Black. It's from the "It's Your Birthday" stamp set.
The White Taffeta ribbon was tied around the front of the card by cutting a slit in the fold with the Craft Knife and threading it thru and knotting on the front.

I stamped the 'Smile' petal 5 times onto Almost Amethyst Designer Prints paper and cut out the petals with paper snips. They were adhered onto the card with SNAIL. The center was stamped in Summer Sun on Whisper white and punched out with the 1" Circle Punch. I used the 1/8" hole punch to create the hole for the Fire Rhinestone Brad and then adhered the whole center with a dimensional to the flower.
This is a really fun, easy card to make and could be re-done in so many color combos for any occasion. The Pick-a-Petal stamp set is really one of my favorites because you really can use the components in so many ways. It's definitely one worth owning!

  2. Both card are very nice. I like the colors on your first card and am partial to anything floral so it's my "fav" but the Pink card is nice as well and very sparkly!
