Sam's Birthday Card


Hi everyone, hope youve all had a nice Easter, mind was quiet though my hubby was busy visiting his family, and trying to catch up with all their news.

Todays card is one of the Elizabeth Bell stamps from Funky Kits, this one is Daisy and her Pram. Ive stamped Daisy onto white card and coloured her with my Karisma Prisma Colouring Pencils, then cut her out with one of the new Nestabilitie Dies. I have also used it for the her mount, this was a piece of green Pearlescent card run through my Cuttlebug with the Heart Folder. Ive also used it to punch out some of the new Flourish Accents from Spellbinders.

The base card is a A3 piece of white card cut down to a 8"x 8" size, and then I have layered it up in the following manner. The first layer is a pale green card on top of which I have layered a green patterend paper. The second layer is pink Pearlescent card on which I have positioned 4 pieces of pattered paper. I then punched out with my Martha Stewart punch a piece of ribbon with pink pearlescent paper to which I have stuck a pink with green spots ribbon, this was then stuck around this second layer, and then stuck to the base card.

I have then punched out with a Octagon Scallop Die another mount of dark green pearlescent paper, a layer on top of which I have stuck the stamped image and top mount, putting them at opposite angles.

To finish of the card I have stuck the flourish accents around the card, with little flower jewels in between them, and made up a flower with a charm for the bottom left hand corner. The greeting was then printed of from my computer and mounted on a further piece of pink pearlescent card and stuck onto the card at the botton, and just to finish this of I have stuck a further flower jewel on to it.
