Hey there! Seems like I am on a birthday card-making roll right now. I must admit, birthday cards, after Christmas cards, are my favorite cards to make! Today's card is a combination of the Happiness Abounds bundle of stamps and dies with another piece of Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 Specialty Designer Paper and the Artistically Inked stamp set.
I was thinking about how I wished the Happiness Abounds stamp set had some stamps to fill in the blossom outlines with color and realized I might be able to use the watercolorish images from Artistically Inked. I stamped the large bloom first with the largest image in Artistically Inked with stamped-off Orchid Oasis, then stamped the Happiness Abounds outline bloom with Starry Sky. After I cut it out with the Blossoming Happiness die it was perfect! I stamped the smaller blooms with the smaller Artistically Inked image and stamped-off Highland Heather, then stamped over it with the Happiness Abounds outline using Gorgeous Grape. I cut both of them with the coordinating Blossoming Happiness die. I added an Iridescent Rhinestone to the center of the largest bloom and Clear Wink of Stella to all. Before I adhered to the card I added some texture with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder.
I stamped "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Artistically Inked with Starry Sky ink directly on a piece of Abstract Beauty Specialty Paper before embossing with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder. I added a couple more Iridescent Rhinestone for more sparkle.
After adhering the stamped/embossed layer to the card front I wrapped White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon around both front layers, tying in a pretty knot.
Inside I stamped two phrases from Happiness Abounds directly on the Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Paper, as well as another large bloom with Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky ink.
