Birthday Card With Petal Potpourri

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments! I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Regular readers might recall how much I love creating my own backgrounds and also using the Blendabilities markers from Stampin' Up! Today's card is created using both those techniques, with the new Petal Potpourri stamp set...

Card: Whisper White and Lost Lagoon
Ink: Lost Lagoon and Pool Party
Markers: Coastal Cabana Blendabilities
Stamp sets: Petal Potpourri and Tag Talk
Tools: Flower Medallion and Bracket Label punches

Stamp the flower image from Petal Potpourri randomly onto a panel of Whisper White and once onto a spare piece. Adhere panel to folded card base. Color the additional one with the lightest shade of Coastal Cabana Blendie and punch out.

Stamp the sentiment from Tag Talk on Whisper White and punch out. Punch piece of Lost Lagoon card and layer together.

Attach sentiment and flower to card using Stampin' Dimensionals.
