Happy Birthday Gorgeous – Just Because Floral

Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Just Because

There are times when I’m designing that I create one design then I’m inspired to create a second.  Well……then I say “what the heck” I should create a third one.  Lol!  This is the first of three designs featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set.  This stamp set has a variety of images and shapes that makes it easy to create a variety of different designs.

BASE:  For the base I started with a Long & Narrow size in Pink Pirouette.  I trimmed 7/8″ from the front lengthwise.  Next I cut a 1″ Melon Mambo strip and used the Faux Suede technique to give a bit of texture by adhering it to the right edge of the base.

EMBOSSED FLOWERS:  After several attempts I went with Silver Embossing the flowers to add shine.  First, I stamped the solid flower several times in Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo then silver embossed the flower outline.  Then I fussy cut each large flower.  Next I punched several flower shapes and layered them into the opposite color flower.  I love the visual depth this gives each flower.  The flowers were adhered to a 3/4″ Silver Foil strip then popped with Dimensionals onto a 1-1/4″ Vellum strip.  Finally, I adhered the Vellum strip to the right edge of the card front.  I love the layered look and depth this gives the design.

SENTIMENT:  Well, I finally got to use my Vertical Greetings Stamp Set.  Woohoo!  I was inspired to add the sentiment that was heat embossed in Silver onto a vellum strip.  It was then adhered to the back side of the card front.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s post.  Until next time happy stamping!
