For today’s project, I’m sharing a birthday card with “cut” flowers, “die cut” that is.

Botanical Bliss

 

The Botanical Tags die set has a beautiful, single flower that belongs at the top of a tag. However, there is also a die to cut the bottom edge of the flower and leaves, as I’m showing you today.

I ran the Botanical Bliss flower die through the Big Shot with Thick Whisper White cardstock, and a second time through the Big Shot with the die to cut the bottom edge of the flower.

 

Once I had my three flowers, I “painted” them with Stampin’ Blends in these colors: Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light and Dark Petal Pink, and Light and Dark Flirty Flamingo. I used Light and Dark Old Olive for the leaves, and Color Lifter on the flowers to soften the colors.

 

Sahara Sand makes a nice, neutral background, and card base, with a layer of Old Olive cardstock between them. I stamped “Happy Birthday” from the Botanical Bliss stamp set in Old Olive ink to tie in with the leaves and 1/16″ border.

Before gluing the flowers to their background, I positioned them with two die cut stems, made with the Botanical Tags die set and Sahara Sand cardstock. 

 

My inspiration for today’s project was the sketch challenge at TGIF.

 

I’m also sharing with Seize the Birthday.
