Have A Fabulous Birthday Yellow Posies


Today I have a card created with leftover flowers from yesterday's post and a few other things I had on my desk.  The background paper is from a DCWV paper pad.  There is a lattice border down the middle of the card punched with the Martha Stewart "Garden Trellis" punch.  On top of that is a punched border created with the Martha Stewart Mega "Branch" punch.  The pretty doily is one of the new die cut doilies from Joan's Gardens called "Canadian Kaleidoscope".  I love having the doily dies so I can cut any color doily I need for my projects.  They are so lacy and a great addition to any project.   It was cut out with green card stock.  To give it some added texture, I decided to fold it in fourths and run it through the crimper.  Love how it turned out.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "You Inspire Me" set, and the pretty frame is from the JustRite "Kindness" set.  These were white embossed on turquoise card stock and cut out with scissors. 

The flowers were created using the Martha Stewart "Cosmo" and "Cornflower" punches.  the stamens were created with the sun punch and the tips of each point was colored with an orange marker.   The flowers were arranged around the sentiment and leaves tucked in around them.  A pretty silk green bow and butterfly were added to complete the card. 

I am happy I made a few extra little posies so I could create two very different cards.  This card will fit into a business size envelope.  All the products used can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Making a different size card is a great idea, especially when the envelope size is commercially available. Your creations are special. I, too, am a flower lover.
