Pink and Gold Cistus Flower Happy Birthday
It has been awhile since I've used some of my layering flower dies. For this card I pulled out the Altenew Craft-a-Flower Cistus Layering Dies.
All the layers were die cut from Neenah white cardstock and then ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks.
I decided to use gold glitter cardstock for the center of the flowers, as well as the top layer of the leaves. The layers were adhered together using liquid. I still had the Ellen Hutson Essential Rectangle die sitting on my desk and cut a thin frame from gold glitter cardstock as well. I adhered it to a top folding A2 cardbase, but it was a little crooked. So I cut down the card front and glue it to another top folding cardbase.
The flowers and leaves were adhered in place with a combination of liquid glue and foam tape. The main sentiment was cut from gold glitter cardstock and sticky back foam, removing the foam from the letters that overlapped the flowers. The secondary sentiment was stamped with VersaMark Ink on a scrap of cardstock that was colored with the same Copic Markers as the flowers. It was adhered with foam tape in strategic places to keep it level. The final embellishment was to scatter some gold confetti around the flowers.
