Hello crafty friends!
I’m here today to share a floral birthday card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: I Scream For... (I used IRIDESCENT sequins) and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Sparkle and Shine. I will be giving this card to my lovely sister because her birthday is this Sunday. We will be celebrating her birthday tonight actually because she is off to a wonderful secret getaway with her husband on her birthday. I tried to tailored this card for my sister. Her favorite color is lavender and she loves flowers. You should see her yard. She has beautiful flower beds! Also, she goes to the Chicago Botanical Garden every Spring and Summer in Glencoe, IL just to see all the flowers and plants there. I went there once with her, but I didn't enjoy it as much as her. Lol!
For my card today, I used the Mama Elephant Water Blooms set to create my floral background. I used various Mama Elephant pigment inks and black heat embossed the sentiment from Mama Elephant Make A Wish set. The vellum was die-cut using Mama Elephant Femme Frames. The card was finished off with some sparkling clear sequins and a couple of pink iridescent sequins.
I did the same stamping on the tag as I did on the card and used Lawn Fawn Violet's ABCs to spell out her name. Her name was black heat embossed. I left out the "to" and "from" on the tag because I thought she could reuse the tag as a bookmark later on. After uploading the photos here, I am feeling that this card looked a little more like a wedding card than a birthday card. What do you think? Regardless, I know my sister will love it as she is my #1 fan! :)
This card and tag came together pretty quickly and I had so much fun making it. Even though, I love to color critters and such, I think sometime it's fun to just stamp. I hope you enjoy today's projects! Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a great weekend!
