Hey there! Today's card is a re-do of a card I shared with you a few weeks ago before the January/June Mini Catalog retired. I wanted to do this card at a stamp camp last month but the designer paper I had stamped on for the front and the inside was sold out and retired so I had to improvise. I'm very happy with what I came up with! View my original card HERE.
To mimic the look of the retired designer paper, I used a blending brush to gently swirl (by starting the swirling motion off the paper) Soft Succulent ink onto my Basic White layer. I did this for both the front and inside layers.
I stamped "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Artistically Inked with Starry Sky ink BEFORE embossing the layer with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder. Aren't those tiny butterflies cute? They are self-adhesive Brushed Brass Butterflies!
I used the watercolor-look images from Artistically Inked to fill in the detailed line blooms from Happiness Abounds. I stamped the large watercolor image with stamped-off Orchid Oasis, then stamped the detailed line bloom with Starry Sky. I stamped the smaller swirly image with stamped-off Highland Heather ink, then stamped the detailed bloom with Gorgeous Grape. I cut them all out with Blossoming Happiness dies.
I embossed the blooms with the same Painted Posies folder, added touches of Clear Wink of Stella, then adhered with dimensionals. I added the largest Iridescent Rhinestone from the pack to the center of the largest bloom.
I stamped two sentiments from Happiness Abounds on the inside with Starry Sky, and a repeat bloom in the lower left corner.
