A Secret Garden Birthday

005 When I saw this card online I knew I had to CASE it!  Isn’t it beautiful?  It’s not a simple card to make but it sure is pretty!

The flowers are from the Secret Garden stamp set.  I stamped them with Whisper White Craft Ink and embossed them with White Embossing Powder.  Then I rubbed Calypso Coral in over them to add a bit of dimension before die-cutting them with the Secret Garden Framelits.  The “Happy Birthday” is a single stamp called “Beautiful Birthday” on page 44 of the catalog ($6.95).  If you like it, you better order it now because it is on the retired list and won’t appear in the new catalog.

I kind of white-washed the embossed background to soften the look a bit and I rubbed Old Olive Ink on the edges of the leaves to add dimension.   I thought this would have made the perfect Mother’s Day card but I couldn’t find the perfect sentiment for it.   I guess that means I’ll be creating cards for the moms this weekend!  I’ll let you know what I come up with!

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
