I'm guilty of making things a little harder than they need to be. Not with this card. It's easy, but elegant, I think.
I love this card and it's simple enough for me to use in my beginner group. They will be excited!
Start with a card base of Petal Pink that is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold at 4 1/4.
A layer of Soft Seafoam follows and is cut to 3 3/4 x 5.
The next layer is Whisper White measuring 3 5/8 x 4 7/8. Stamp the flower stem from Forever Blossoms ( in the January-June Mini Catalog) in Basic Gray. I stamped the flowers coming in from the top two corners and from the center of the bottom. Color using the Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends. I colored the whole flower in the light and then just added a few highlights with the dark. I didn't even go back and blend it! Use the Light and Dark Soft Seafoam to color in the leaves and stems. Run a length of the Petal Pink Organdy Stripe Ribbon across the center of this layer and tape on the back. I use my Grid Paper to make sure the ribbon is straight. Add this layer to the card front.
Stamp the word Hello from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Basic Gray. Center and punch out with the 1" Circle Punch. Stamp the tiny flower from Forever Blossoms in gray over the word. I did stamp this off to make it lighter. Color in the flower using the Light and Dark Petal Pink Blends and the Dark Soft Seafoam. Punch a 1 1/8 Scallop Circle from Basic Gray card stock. Layer these and add with dimensionals.
Add a bow of the organdy ribbon with a glue dot.
The saying on the inside is from the Timeless Tropical stamp set. It's stamped in Basic Gray ink. Add a stem of the flowers from the lower right and color the same as the front.
That's all there is too it! Need some great birthday cards quick? Build up your stash with this card! If you need any supplies I do sell them. My supply list is below and links to my online store. Thank you!
