Hi friends! Happy Sunday – I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and staying warm! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I’m thrilled to share that I’ve been invited to guest design for The Outlawz Sunday Songs & Rhymes because one of my projects was chosen as a Favorite in their challenge a few weeks ago. Beccy’s Place is the sponsor this fortnight so come on over and play for a chance to win a prize! We were given the first verse of The Yellow Jessamine poem to find inspiration which I found in the word ‘wreath’. I used Beccy’s gorgeous Gnarled Wreath Flowers digital image (a freebie which I cut with my Scan N Cut) for this pretty birthday card created in one of my favorite color combos of purple and green!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding landscape card base from CutCardStock Basis White 110# cardstock and rounded the bottom right corner. I also cut layering panels from CutCardStock Curious Metallic Violette cardstock and CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock which I adhered to the card base. I printed the pre-colored digital image on CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock, cut it with my Scan N Cut, and adhered it to the card front. You can’t see it at all in the photos, but I added Nuvo Golden Sunset Glitter Drops to the centers of the flowers. I stamped a sentiment from the Taylored Expressions Simple Strips – Birthday stamp set, cut it with the coordinating Taylored Expressions Simple Strips – Asymmetrical die and adhered it to the card front with double-sided adhesive foam strips in an offset fashion. The finishing touch was adding several gemstones from the Trinity Stamps Amethyst Accent Embellishment Mix using the Trinity Pick Up Stick.
I cut the inside panel from CutCardStock Basis White 80# cardstock and embellished it with a strip of CutCardStock Curious Metallic Violette cardstock. I left the panel blank (as this is a note card) and layered it on CutCardStock Pop-Tone Jellybean Green cardstock.
And one more look… I absolutely love how this turned out! What a beautiful image from the talented Beccy! I’m going to donate this card to the Bearly Arts Cards for Cubs project.
