A fun & recent birthday card

I recently worked on this birthday card for a to be determined birthday......

It uses a technique called "stained glass."  To do this you stamp with Versamark and then put embossing powder on vellum & heat the embossing powder.  I let them dry for a little bit and then took my SU markers and colored on the back of the vellum.  It's important to stay inside the lines of the embossed image.  Allow it to dry after you have colored, otherwise it comes off on your fingers (speaking from experience).  :)  I then punched out the flowers to add to my card.

OSAT Blog Hoppers Spring Flowers

OSAT Blog Hoppers
This is my first Blog Hop, so I am super excited to share my card.  Here's the spring flowers card I made to share with you!

I started with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" crumb cake cardstock and stamped the SU Hardwod stamp on it for the card base in chocolate chip ink.  I then stamped a second one in order to cut out the 3d pieces of the door.  Cut out 4 squares that are 1 3/8" and add stampin dimensionals to the back of them and adhere to card base.  Set this aside as we move onto the wreath.

Use a scrap piece of cardstock to cutout the flower wreath base.  I used the 3 3/16" and 2 3/8" circles framelits to create the wreath base for the flowers.  Stamp and punch out 5 or 6 flowers using our 2013-2015 In Colors (Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush, and Coastal Cabana) using the Petite Petals stamp set & punch.  Layout the flowers on the wreath base until it is a look that you like.  Spread glue over the wreath and start adhering the flowers to the wreath base.  When this is complete, take your extra flowers and add stampin dimensionals to them and pop a few up on the wreath.  Add a small piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath.  I used the Coastal Cabana Sale-a-bration ribbon, and I looped it and adhered to the back of the wreath with glue dots.  Use stampin dimensionals to adhere the flower wreath to your card base.  Place a chocolate chip candy dot to create what looks like a door handle.  

The sentiment is from the painted petals stamp set stamped with chocolate chip on whisper white cardstock.  Punch it out using the decorative label punch.  Using the same punch, punch the background piece out of chocolate chip cardstock.  Cut this background piece in half horizontally to mat your sentiment & adhere.  Add stampin dimensionals to the back of the sentiment.

Now it's time to put everything together for your easel card!  Cut a piece of crumb cake cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11" and score along the 11" side at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2."  Fold at the 5 1/2" score line and then fold back at the 2 3/4" score line.  Add adhesive to the top 2 3/4 x 4 1/4" section getting it ready for your card base.  Add the card base and then the sentiment and ta-da your card is complete!!!  At the bottom of the post is a supply list of materials I used.
