Since Birthday cards always seem to be needed, I try to do at least one Birthday card in my classes. This past weekend was no exception.
The other three cards were fall based. I shared one of those cards on Friday. If you missed it, you can read about it here. I will share the other two in my upcoming posts.
Today’s card is a card I cased from Connie Stewart. When possible, I like giving my class attendees choices. They had their choice from three different colors on this card, Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, or Bermuda Bay.
This is a really simple card that looks more involved than it really is.
We started by stamping the Happy Birthday in the lower right hand corner of the front of the card as well as stamping Make a Wish in lower left hand corner of the inside of the card.
We punched out eight daisies, with one being punched from the inside of the card to have the negative space as a feature to the inside of the card.
Four of punched flowers and the front panel were all run through the Big Shot to emboss using the Qulit Top Textured Impressions folder.
For each of the daisies, I offset the four embossed flowers with the four remaining plain flowers before placing them randomly on the card, cutting off the petals that hung over the edge of the cards.
I did want to make sure the center of each flower was on the card, though, so the faceted gems could be added to each flower.
Each gem was colored using a permanent Sharpie in colors that coordinated with the base color of each card.
Besides the beautiful centers, a small knotted ribbon with coordinating ribbon was added to the bottom of the card.
So which is your favorite color? Which would you have made if you attended my class? Or would you have been a rebel and not done a monochromatic scheme, but mix it up a bit?
If you would like to make this card, you can find all supplies listed below.
Come back next time to see another card we made in class.
