I decided to go a little crazy with my Botanical Blooms set. Hmmm, actually I didn't even use the stamp set. I only used the coordinating Botanical Builder Framelits.
These are so pretty and some of the framelits even have "dimension."
I chose the colors soft sky and mint macron for a soft pastel look. Really, this was very simple. Its just a lot of die cut flowers, layered on the front of a card. I didn't really know how I wanted the card to look. I started by die cutting a bunch of flowers and leaves in the three colors, whisper white, mint macron, and soft sky.
I cut a circle from the circle framelits dies in basic gray cardstock and then start placing them on the circle.
It all went together from there.
I added a bit of shimmer with a clear wink of stella brush on the petals of the flowers and lots of rhinestone jewels.
I embossed the happy birthday greeting with white emboss powder to make it pop on the basic gray background.
I topped it off with the silver satin ribbon, silver sequin trim and a basic silver metal button. I love all the dimension and the bits of sparkle.
I love how it turned out. It was unexpected "fancy-ness" from a bunch of die cut blooms.
I think this card turned out pretty special. I'll be saving it for my mom's birthday, because I think she's pretty special too.
Keep On Stampin' and Come back again soon!
