You’ve made it – Happy Friday! Congrats! I hope you have a lovely weekend ahead of you.
I wanted today’s card to have the feel of fall, warm and cozy, without necessarily screaming fall, so here we go…
My card uses warm colors, starting with Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, and a pattern from the Fruit Stand DSP. (This beautiful Designer Series Paper is part of the October DSP deal, see below.) To start off, I cut a strip of burlap which I placed toward the bottom of the card and snuck in a piece of a delicate white doily behind it.
Next, I created my little cluster to the right. I punched a 1.5″ banner in Tangerine Tango using the Triple Banner Punch and layered it with some vellum.
Then I used the stem/flower framelit from the Everyday Jars Framelits for my flowers cut in Watermelon Wonder, Tangerine Tango, Peekaboo Peach, and Daffodil Delight. I used by bone folder to flatten out the “negative” side because I didn’t want all the flowers facing the same way.
Finally I tied a linen bow around the bundle of flowers.
Next I heat embossed the Happy Birthday in white embossing powder using the sentiment from the Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set.
My card layout was inspired by the challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper.
