Autumnal Floral Birthday
I thought that would go in a more Autumnal direction with todays card.
I have once again used the striplet dies from Creative Expressions, without the cutting edge to give us some background detail for our card, I mounted the Caramel coloured card onto a lovely warm chocolate coloured with some foam tape for height and dimension and then mounted onto another piece of caramel card and then again onto chocolate, giving us our base, by the way be sure to gut the lower layers of the card so as not to waste any card unnecessarily! I used the pieces that 'gutted' out to make the tag for the sentiment.
Next I cut the main focal element, firstly the chocolate layer, cut using the largest of the California Collection Matting A dies (from Creative Expressions) the next layer cut using the Caramel card and the San Francisco largest die and matted the two together with foam tape, giving us some dimension.
I used a varied selection of paper roses in matching colours from my stash and with some foliage cut from my Impression
Obsession Leafy Branch die and some of the gorgeous
I tied a bow with chocolate coloured silky crush ribbon and
a caramel smaller bow on top and secured with a bronze
coloured brad. I stamped my sentiment with Coffee coloured ink and heat embossed with clear powder.
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you all have a lovely relaxed Sunday,
Crafty hugs to you all,
