Layered Flowers Birthday Card {11.11.2016}

Hi! Today's card is a birthday card for a friend who loves flowers. She is a papercrafter, so there is always added pressure to come up with something that is pretty enough and nice enough for her! Yikes, the pressure was on. I made layered flowers for her, using Alt E New's Beautiful Day stamp set. Here is the card!

Since this is a layering stamp, I started with the lightest ink, and the "background" image of the stamp. In this case, it is the solid flower background, that I stamped out in light pink. I continued stamping the next layer up and each time, used a darker color. This made the flowers have a lot of depth and texture. I also did the same procedure with the leaves, using the layering stamps and a light and darker green ink colors. I also squeezed on a dollop of gold enamel dot drops for the center of the flowers. And, a spritz of gold splatters topped it all off! 

I stamped out "birthday" from Lawn Fawn's Big Scripty Words, heat embossed it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Black Detail embossing powder, and die cut it with Lawn Fawn's Big Scripty Words Lawn Cuts. I also stamped out "Happy" above the birthday, from one of Lawn Fawn's stamp sets too. Here is what the sentiment looked like.

The inside of the card was pretty simple. I stamped out one of the floral images from Alt E New's Beautiful Day stamp set in light pink along the edges of the inside. I also used the same stamp set's sentiment for the inside too. I hope my friend likes this! I really enjoyed making it and I love the pink and gold together.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
