Vintage Garden Enjoy Your Day

I love making cards and I make a lot of them, but I have more than I can use. I called one of our local assisted living centers and asked them if they could use some birthday cards. They said that would love them, they give cards to each of their residents on their birthday. So I went to work creating some cards for seniors.

I first stamped the outline with black ink and then stamped the two colored layers in pinks. It was okay, but I wanted to add a little more visual interest, so I stamped the outline again with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it gold. It turned out lovely.

The image was die cut with the coordinating die. The die was also used to cut out sticky back foam and the two were adhered together by removing the backing paper from the foam before removing it from the larger panel.

A panel of white cardstock was die cut using a stitched rectangle and then dry embossed. It was adhered to a side folding cardbase with liquid glue. The flower bouquet was laid on the card front to determine where to add the extra leaves, which were adhered with liquid glue. The flower bouquet was then adhered with liquid glue.

There was space in the bottom right for a sentiment. I decided to use Simon Says Stamp Painted Enjoy die and cut it from copper mirror cardstock and sticky back foam. It was adhered in place with liquid glue. I decided to add a secondary sentiment. I ink blended a scrap of cardstock with the same green used on the leaves and then stamped the sentiment with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed it the Champagne Gold Embossing Powder. It was adhered in place with foam and liquid glue. Nuvo Glitter Drops in Golden Sunset were added to the stamen of the flowers.
