Todays card is a break from Christmas cards and back to birthdays.  This one has a mix of products that I hope you will like.  Most are from the Modern Garden Suite.


Stampin' Up!, Modern Garden, Garden Walk, Modern Oval, Bough Punch, Jackie Beers



The paper is where the color choices were chosen from so starting there is a good point.  The two pieces you see of DSP, the left side and the area behind the sentiment, are from the Garden Walk Designer Series Paper.  Actually they are opposite sides of one piece of the paper.  And did you notice the torn edge?  That is something I have not done in forever.  Another old technique that is always in style!

The card base is pulled form the DSP and is Poppy Parade.  And even though I know that blue flowers are very rare, I had to pull the Boho Blue from the paper for the thin layer as well as a few flowers.  The boughs behind the sentiment are punched from Pretty Peacock card stock.  **The Bough Punch is back in stock as of yesterday!!!!

Stamp Bundle

This stamp set is a Punch Bundle and I love it.  There are several different sentiments and flowers, even a poinsettia.  It is the Modern Garden Bundle.  And the Punch is the Modern Oval Punch.  It is a great size for medium to larger sentiments.  All of the floral stamps I used, and I used several, are in the stamp set.  I could have gone a bit overboard, but just loved trying the different ones and adding colors from the DSP piece.  The flowers on the sentiment layer are probably supposed to be definitions for the larger flowers.  But I thought they were cute enough to be their own flower.


To complete the card I need bling of course.  But first I added some loops of the White Iridescent Ribbon under the sentiment layer.  It does not show up well in the photo but does add texture in person.  And the final touch is the addition of the Adhesive Backed Sequin Trio.  There are more than my normal three here.  I added one to the center of each stamped flower!  This is a happy birthday card after all.
