Last week was our DD’s ‘birthday week’… or a continuation of ‘birthday month’. LOL, for many years my DH and DD have been having a competition on who can drag out the birth-DAY event the longest. It’s not really complimented with celebration, but rather special privileges like no dishes, no litter box cleaning, extra dessert or the last helping of garlic mashed potatoes. And so it goes…
This year on her birthday, DD was attending a dinner in honor of her scholarship mentor… so we postponed the family celebration until the weekend, and this is the card I made for her.
I didn’t really like it that much, but it has a 3-d youthful appearance with bright colors and dimensional flowers. The curly cute stamped birthday greeting was perfect for the young and colorful card.
The center paper daisies were colored using a brayer and daffodil delight classic ink. I was hoping for better coverage, but instead the crimped lines in the paper daisies resisted the flower giving them a more dimensional appearance.Lots of daisies, and only a standard A2 card… so they had to overlap a bit. Stampin’ Dimensionals were used to pop up the medium sized bloom, and the edges were curled too.
Two of the daisy backgrounds were made with scallop punches and melon mambo card stock. The third and largest is a paper die cut from the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Series Paper doily sheet.
The background paper… I always have a hard time finding this one in the Idea Book & Catalog, LOL it’s a freebie hostess paper pack called “Cheerful Treat” and found on page 11.
