Hi, this is a bright and cheerful birthday card made almost entirely with Spellbinders products. I love their flower dies, they make it so easy to put a card like this together, with interesting flowers and foliage.
To Make The Card
Cut a piece of pale peach card 10.1cm x 14.35cm, emboss it with the Sun Rays embossing folder and adhere to the front of a white A6 blank card. Die cut the pocket and outer edge stitch lines from blue card, run this through the machine again to add the stitched loop detailing. Die cut a selection of flowers in shades of orange and turquoise and assemble them. Adhere the pocket to the card with thin adhesive foam pads. Leave the top edge of the pocket un-stuck so that you can tuck the flowers and leaves under it, just put the foam pads at the top corners. Glue the stems of the flowers and leaves and slide them under the top edge of the pocket.
Cut two extra, small flowers each with a leaf sprig and set aside. Cut a strip of card the same colour as the background and hot foil the sentiment on to it in silver foil. Adhere the sentiment strip to the lower part of the pocket, use glue where it touches the pocket and a thin foam pad where it is on the background. Glue one of the small flowers at the left hand end of the sentiment strip so that it slightly overlaps the top corner. Glue the other small flower to the outside of the pocket in the top right hand corner area.
A lovely card that would appeal to a wide range of ages, I think it would also work with a few different sentiments such as a Get Well or Thank You. Thank you for visiting, I hope you like it, all the products used are linked below.
