I have a birthday card to share with you today.  It is almost out of season in regard to more summer type flowers, but here is to one last card.  Here in the South, summer lasts quite a bit longer than other parts, so I still have some flowers blooming.  And I love this stamp set that I used today!



I paired Under My Umbrella stamp set with the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.  To create the  flowers I stamped along the bottom edge of a scrap of paper.  I used two different flower stamps from the set to create this little uneven line.  I colored them using Stampin’ Blends and then fussy cut them along the ends and top.

The umbrella is stamped directly onto the sheet from Forever Greenery DSP and punched using the Umbrella Builder Punch.  I added some dimensionals to the base and then tucked the flowers behind and over the ends.

The Rococo Rose circle is cut using the 2 1/4″ Circle Punch.  I wanted the umbrella and flowers to Pop a bit off of the green background.  I chose the color from the flowers.  When layering everything together, I wanted the umbrella and flowers to spill over the edge a bit.  Plus it left a little more room for the tag.  I like seeing the flowers hanging over the center panel and onto the card base.  It shows the flowers a bit extra.

The tag sentiment is from the stamp set as well.  I used the Classic Label Punch to punch it out.  I then put the one end back into the end of the punch to make the banner tip.  The other end I cut off straight and tucked behind the umbrella handle.  I also added a few small pearls to a couple of the flower centers for a bit more dimension and a touch of bling!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I do appreciate your visits and comments very much.  I have all of the supplies I used at the bottom of the post.  Don’t forget about the 15% OFF DSP Sale!  We have a little under two weeks to go.
