Today’s card was created using the Textured Floral Bundle along with some of the pretty Fresh As A Daisy 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper. The Boho Blue designer series paper background, combined with the Azure Afternoon flowers and touch of Night of Navy greenery blend well together!
I started off by stamping the flowers in Azure Afternoon ink. The flower center for the large flower was stamped in Night of Navy and I die cut the center for the small flower from Night of Navy Soft Shimmer Specialty Paper. Leaves were stamped in Garden Green and I used the coordinating dies from the Textured Floral Dies set to cut out these images. I also die cut a greenery sprig from Garden Green cardstock and two sprigs from Night of Navy Soft Shimmer paper.
I used the second to largest die from the Countryside Corners Dies to cut out an octagon in Basic White. The birthday sentiment was stamped onto a white sentiment label and matted to a piece of Night of Navy Soft Shimmer paper.
All of the stamped and die cut flowers, leaves and greenery were arranged and adhered to the octagon, leaving space at the bottom of the octagon for the sentiment label. I adhered the arrangement to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and the sentiment label was adhered slightly overlapping the bottom of the octagon using a combination of Stampin’ Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots.
The inside panel was decorated with the small flower stamped in Azure Afternoon. The flower center was stamped in Night of Navy.
The envelope front was adorned with the same small flower image, and I adhered a piece of coordinating designer series paper to the envelope flap and trimmed the excess paper away from the flap. Blue Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins were added to the card front along with a small double bow tied from white Baker’s Twine to complete the card!
