Bold Blooms Happy Birthday
I love creating cards with flowers, and there are so many beautiful stamps available. While we were living in our 5th Wheel Trailer looking for our new home in San Antonio I ordered five flower stamps by Woodware Craft. The problem was that I had to wait until we found a house and setup my Craft Room before I could use them. I had a wonderful time coloring and creating cards.
This is the first stamp that I used. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Neenah cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. I chose a soft pink color and love the way it turned out.
These stamps do not have coordinating dies, so I used my PIXScan mat and the Silhouette Cameo to cut them out. I think adding a little dimension with foam tape on an image really makes it pop on the card. A rectangle of white cardstock was cut using an Ellen Hutson Essential Rectangle die. This die not only cuts the rectangle, it also cuts a thin frame. It was cut again from black cardstock and the thin frame was adhered to a top folding cardbase. The easiest way to do this and make sure the frame is stake some repositionable tape and place the center rectangle on the cardbase and then using liquid glue on the frame adhere it in place and then remove the center rectangle.
The sentiment was stamped in the lower left corner of the rectangle. Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow was added to the center of the flowers and the card was done.
