Birthday Wishes

Following on from my cards on Friday, I stamped more of these azaleas using the layering stamps and co-orrdinating dies... they do make it easy.  So I decided to make a card for

I used a white folded card and a Decorative die and cut a partial flap for the front of the card, scoring and folding at the edge of the cut... which looked great but left the card unable to stand - so I cut another panel same size as the back and adhered it to the top with a narrow strip of tape.

Then sourced some patterned paper in yellows to match the flowers - one panel for the background and one cut with the next size down Decorative die on which I stamped the sentiment before attaching to the card front with foam sheet.  I was a bit bland so I cut a narrow strip of the background PP and placed it along the bottom edge. To finish I arranged the die cut flowers  and leaves and attached with foam tape and added some white crystal drops.

Thanks for stopping by - have a happy day
