Fresh Cut Florals Birthday!

Hi everyone! I was late on the WPlus9 Fresh Cut Florals bandwagon, so when I first realized that this glorious stamp set existed, it was sold out. Of course. So I waited, and waited, and finally got my hands on it. And More Fresh Cuts. And Fresh Cut Containers. I may be obsessed.

Fresh Cut Florals Birthday

To make this birthday card, I started off by die cutting some of the floral and foliage shapes from Fresh Cut Florals and More Fresh Cuts. I used a variety of dye inks (colours listed below) to stamp out the flower, berry and leaf layers. I chose to limit the number of colours for a more cohesive design. Next, I die cut the largest postage stamp shape from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Postage Stamps die set and gold heat embossed the "happy birthday" sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings stamp set. I arranged the flowers, leaves and berries around the sentiment and interspersed a few sequins among the flowers. Finally, I adhered the panel to a coordinating piece of lavender paper and to a square card base.
