Well here we are, Friday and my last post for I’m Bringing Back Birthdays.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my posts this week and I am now stocked up for Birthday Cards for Family and Friends.
This is the latest card
My usual 6 x 6 Scalloped Card for the base which I have been using up from my stock.
The Designer Series Paper is from the Succulent Garden Series which has now retired. Both pieces are the front and back of the paper.
I attached a piece of the 1cm Ribbon from the Combo Pack in this collection to hide the join.
For the flower, I chose Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock and the Succulent Framelits Dies, cut out using the Big Shot.
I wish now I had edged the flowers to make them more realistic but stuck them down and thought about it when it was too late to change.
My bow is using the same Ribbon which is attached with a Glue Dot to the card.
For my sentiment I went to the Label me Pretty Stamp Set, stamped it using Mint Macaron Ink then used the Pretty Label Punch to punch it out.
A few Pearls are added as extras and to complete my design.
I bought this Bundle a while ago when Succulent Garden Flowers were everywhere, however it hasn’t been used and the flower dies only used this once. So I am going to try and sell the set as I now know I won’t be using it due to it being retired.
If you are interested in having the bundle, leave me a message and I will contact you.
I have enjoyed doing this series of Bringing Birthdays Back and hope you have too.
I will be doing a small blog post later today as it is 1st September and the release of the new Seasonal Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!. More about later.
