A Garden Of Birthday Wishes!

01-HB

I'm feeling a bit monochromatic today and since yellow is my very favorite color, Yellow It Is!   I have several birthday cards to make for next month and since I'm having house guests and then leaving for a month, I thought I'd best get at it and make something that is easy and pretty.  The front of my card began it's life as a 6x6.  You will see it changes as I go along.  

Here's how I started.  I began by picking my colors.  And from there I picked some dies.  

02-BD

I didn't like how plain the background was, so I found a large dot embossing folder, the only problem, the folder wasn't 6 inches tall.  What to do!  I cut my white base down to 5 inches by 12 inches and scored at 3 inches and 9 inches.  Now the background fits perfectly and everything still fits on the card.

Originally I thought I would emboss the background on all the panels.  When I did this I thought it was too busy....... so I tried this....

Ah, easier on my eyes.  I cut additional flower heads, the Garden Bouquet has a die with 4 additional flower heads, so cutting them was quick and easy.  See the die below....

Remember I said the embossing folder wasn't 6 inches...well it also isn't 6 inches wide.  I ran it through the Big Shot twice.  It was easy to line up the dots.  There was a thin line, but when I added the white piece the line was almost totally covered.....

And here is the finished inside....

After adding sequins, this card is ready to post!   Well, that's it for today.  I hope you find time to create a card...and until next time....Mary Signature copy
